Wisdom is a broad topic and my curiosity is raised to know exactly how the author connects his opinions to it. I trust it will make a good read.

The themes such as patience, wealth, and politics discussed in this book are quite interesting and could be helpful as guidelines in various aspects of our lives.

Latest Review: Gratitude by Marlon Orlando cole

While the book promises great learnings, the critical points mentioned had me thinking twice about grabbing this book. Thank you so much for an honest and thorough review. The title and the book cover looks so attractive and strong. One can expect in depth learnings and lessons in life, however it seems to have failed to deliver and give justice appropriately.

This book comes off as a sage-like book. However, the informal style of writing will make it a relaxed read.

This is a motivating and encouraging book focusing on life-related issues. The simple and informal tone used allows every reader to comprehend the writer’s arguments. However, the reference to some Hindu deities involved may not fit well with my beliefs. I'll pass on this one.

From the excerpt, the book seemed to be written in a concise manner and with easy-to-follow logic. However, the editing issues you mentioned should be taken care of. Thanks for the honest review!

This book seems like a motivating self help book. The book emphasis on the importance of using logical mind in decision making rather than emotional mind. This would be hard to execute in day to day life all the times but it is important. Thanks for a great review.

There is no too much in acquiring knowledge, because where yours end is another beginning. I like the author perspective on life. Congrats on BOTD.

This sounds like a wonderful read, but the editing and other issues mentioned will affect its ability to grasp one's attention. Thanks for the informative review.

I appriciate the authors efforts in putting together this book regardless of it's flaws as I am fund of reading self help/ motivational books. I also appreciate the reviewers complete honetsy in sharing both the positives and the short comings. Based on my short read I found that the author choose some really great theme to discuss like teacher and responsibility. The whole flow of the conversation being had reminds me of the self talks I have ever so often. That was a good attempt by the author and a straight foward review by the reader.

The book sounds good but I don't see in any way, how it can help me. Nevertheless, I thought I would just skim through it.But the low rating made me not want to try it. So, think I'll pass this one. Thanks for the review...

Thanks for the honest review. I like for books of this genre to be simple and easy to read and understand. But from your review, perhaps this one is too simple and makes it be boring. Hopefully, the author will use your review to edit and make needed improvements. I will not be reading this book because the sample did not capture my interest and your review confirmed my feeling that it was not a good match for me. Congratulations on BOTD and good luck.

This seams like a nice self-help book about motivation. Readers of this genre will definitely enjoy it. Nice review
