This book is very hard to review. There were parts I really enjoyed but a lot of the book really dragged. I feel like there was a lot of things I didn't understand, a lot of underlying messages that weren't very clear. I liked the story about the author & his son. I liked some of his Chautauqua's, but many of them were hard to follow. I can't really recommend it. But what do I know. It was a huge seller & has a cult like following. There is probably something there I just don't happen to see it.

Digressive at times. Otherwise, a true gem. "The only Zen you can find on the tops of mountains is the Zen you bring up there." Read full review

I was not really enamored with this book. I also have a toddler so was a bit distracted while reading but I did not like the narration or the story arc itself. I was thinking this book would be totally different than it ended up being and was not enthralled. Read full review

I expected a little more to be quite honest. I would've loved it had I not expected it to be a life-changing piece of literature! So bottom-line is I liked it, I think all "readers" should take the time to check it out, but don't knock any old ladies down rushing into line at checkout... Read full review

A pretty heavy read. Didn't get a whole lot out of it. Maybe I should re-read it. Read full review
