    4. some people say you need to read this book multiple times i ll try, but only because it is short wanna know the answer to this book read as much as you can, distill what you can, and watch the randy pausch last lecture on youtube then go out and do something awesome will comment if i reread.

    5. This book is a lasting contribution, synthesizing broad philosophical looks at human understanding and wisdom in an absence of dogma I hope that this guidepost will be available and accessible for everyone who unknowingly searches for it How s that for inscrutable

    6. I read an excellent review of this book in the UU magazine and then met the author at UU family camp It s a quick read and thought provoking There are a few sections I want to reread and then I plan to use it to actually plan out on paper some goals for myself.

    7. Poorly written This book has quotes than original work While the author introduces many important concepts and quotes, he fails in explaining them and integrate them in a coherent whole If you take any English class, you will learn that you can not use a quote to explain another one.

    8. Outstanding book Best one I have read this year Loaded with research and references to other material makes it a great jumping off point for further reading into the subject.
