A nice combination of poetry and philosophy.

Make sure your sharp and awake while listening to this. The narrator can combine with the prose and cause drowsiness.

Wasn't able to finish it.

I'm sure there was plenty I could learn from this book, but I've grown tired of his style of writing.

He writes with complicated words to obscure simple ideas without justification. Even if many of those ring true, it does not support trust in his words.

I might revisit it, since I might not be susceptible to gain anything from it. Many have praised his writing.
