This is an excellent book to give as a gift to someone in transition. It reminds me a little of "Who Moved My Cheese" but has a more "Zen" slant. Liked it. Would read more by this authorIf you like books like the Alchemist, Jonathan Livingston Seagull or fables with a life lesson, then this is the book for you.
It's really hard to fault a dead author but to be honest, I found this just so sad. Yes, there is a humour to it, definitely, but ultimately we know what happens in the end and that casts a dark shadow.
