This book made a huge impact on me and how I perceive myself.
It showed me how many rules I impose on myself and how that
has no purpose. I felt very alert and also scared and confused
as I was willing to go within and look at myself.
I think it is most powerful if you are asking yourself questions and
staying open even if it gets uncomfortable. It shakes you up and makes you question
your life, love, etc. Some of my friends felt this book was repetitious
and boring. It spoke to me!
Some believe he is hypocritical by preaching to follow yourself, no religion
and no leaders or other belief systems. So, some people think it is contradictory
because he wants us to follow his advice. But, this is not how I interpreted it.
He really is encouraging you to listen to yourself at all times. Stay alert and
question everything at all times.

Mind blowing book, literally, from a very advanced human being. Written 50 years ago, but astonishingly fresh and actual, which is just another proof, if needed, of its authenticity and truthfulness.
