A very touching and exceptionally well written little book. Simple words were used to describe the complexity in life, in an everchanging society.
A book that I would buy for teenages and pple who are in their mid twenties. (not sure abt 30s/ 40s/50s as I have not experience that part of life as yet)
Leave it at your bedside and read one chapter a day, this will give you a little reflection about your ownself after a busy day.
I also read the other book by him called 'five people you meet in heaven'. Interesting setting of the story. Sometimes pple around us have impact on us which we seldom realise.

Heard so much about it and finally got hold of a copy from a friend. A very touching book on a true story of a dying professor, how he saw life in the face of death. I particularly like "when you learn how to die, you learn how to live" and also, don't let the so-called modern culture dictate what we want. Think hard on what we our heart really really wants. The ideas in the book are not new but people are often too busy to think about them and overlook what are truly important in life - love and family.

one of the best books i've read. simple and inspiring! i read it 2 years ago when i started thinking what i want in life. the most touching message of the book is "in a society we're very often influenced by its culture. if we don't stand firmly, we will easily lose ourselves and follow the flow. know who you're and what you want to be, create your own culture"
