Journal Entry 1 by amoenus from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma USA on Friday, October 19, 2007
The book is different then I thought it was going to be. I was always told it was this profound read full of jewels for the soul type stuff. I find it to be a book by a man in search of answers to the universal human questions. How to deal with your own mortality, deal with other people who use you, or people you just don't like. How to handle power with integrity. What I have found most valuable from the book is that he spends (I assume years, as it is a series of books) looking for answers and many times finds himself coming back to the same questions. He shares his thoughts with himself, it is believed he didn't write it for anything but self-reflection, and so it is like looking into someone else's mind, anxieties and all. The 1st book is actually the last book he wrote, so I went back and read it again after I had finished the whole thing. It is a book worth reading again, I think it doesn't provide answers, but gets you to think about your own answers.
