Has moments but wears thin quick
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
The book is certainly not a waste of time but I started to find it very annoying as each chapter passed. It came across as way too simplistic and not very realistic considering the context. The underlying messages and stories told in each chapter certainly can help bring balance to someone in a crazy world. I just wish it didn't make me feel like I was dealing with a spoiled adolescent in John.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Similar to my reaction to previous chapters, simplistic.
Have you listened to any of Joshua Medcalf’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No and not sure that I would based on this one. Great potential with some moments but message gets lost.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Maybe depending on the liberties taken by the producer. Potential is there but this was a lost opportunity.

Overly simplistic... perhaps meant for teens?
All of the content seems okay, but it is nothing original. It is every basic self help concept boiled down and told in a cheesy anecdotal story line with modern details. The Japanese sensei is a bit cliche and doesn't come across as a believable story at all.
Gave it three stars only bc the intent is good and it may be a good starting point for some young people.
