I’ve spent the last 5 minutes thinking of the best adjective to use to describe this book in one word as an opening, and I obviously failed miserably.
This book is amazing. My 21st book so far this year.
Of all the books I’ve read this year, this one is the closest rival of Matthew Quick’s Silver Linings Playbook as my Top Book of the year.
This book offers a lot of lessons in life.
It shows us that the best way to live life is that in everything we do, we must remember that we’ve got nothing to lose. Death is inevitable, we’re all gonna die. It’s better to have mistakes than regrets.
It tells us that every journey, every adventure is to be cherished and enjoyed. We shouldn’t just be fixed on the destination because getting there is in itself and of itself a grand reward.
It reminds us that the most important thing when finding our reward in life, is to know and be sure what we’re gonna do with that reward and the happiness that reward will bring. To illustrate, say, your goal in life is to be a doctor. In chasing this dream, we need to know what we’re gonna do when we do become a doctor finally. We also need to know the happiness that getting this dream will bring forth.
And finally, this book, teaches us that it is not a sin to dream and be happy. A lot of us settle because we think we’re not deserving of achieving our biggest dreams and worse, that we do not deserve to be happy. This is only true if we are running away from fighting a good fight. But if we have a heart that does not surrender, then we must know that we deserve everything that we dream and more.
I recommend the book to everyone. To me, this is a 5-star book. It is overflowing with goodness, happy thoughts, and so much love for life. Anyone who is going through depression or a major life change will have a party with this one. I will guarantee that if you’re in either of that state, tears will be inevitable. But it will be the good kind of cry. The kind that leaves you feeling cleansed and purified.
