But if you know what you're signing up for in terms of language, and especially if you're religious, then this is a great book to both enjoy and to ruminate on. Your thoughts on life, philosophy, morality, and the afterlife will never be the same."

The Dalai Lama wants his readers to be able to have their spirits lifting and find purpose and meaning in their own lives. If one is interested in philosophical books, a better choice would be to read the works of Plato, Socrates, and Descartes, who question the world around them and form arguments to prove or disprove theories."

I was told to try The Concept of the Political. This was a very interesting read and It made me want to get back into Philosophy again. "

    "The Republic is most certainly a classic, but it's not the best starting point for someone who is interested in philosophy. Sometime beginning at the beginning isn't the best course, and the Republic is really too dense and requires too much understanding of its context for a beginner. Personally, I wasn't able to understand much of it until I did some intense study of Greek history just to get the context for Plato's writings. "

    "The best kind of scientific/philosophy books are the ones that get you engaged and don't just read like a bland straight forward text book and that's what this is in my opinion. It looks drab and very straight to the point with no interesting stuff added to spice up the subject and engage the reader. I checked out a sample passage and even what I read was overly complex to the point of being mind numbing. I bet this book has some good philosphical ideas but overall I would not suggest it as one of the best books on the subject."
