Some of the ideas are serious food for thought for anyone on the verge of going into the rat race and his ‘daily practice’ has, i’ve found, been very helpful for keeping consistent happiness in each day. I think people have a fear of religion but throughout the book I liberally steal without credit from Christianity, Taoism, Buddhism, Judaism, and many different texts and religious sources.

With fear comes stress, and stress leads to wass, inertia, and all of the other things that slows down our happiness.

The basic basic dee is that to thrive one must be physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually healthy. James loves to read. This isn’t exactly mind-blowing information.

While this might typically be labeled “self-help” Vut himself states that it is not meant to be so. I quite enjoyed this self-published self-help book by a man who has succeeded and failed on a large scale many times in his life.

Some of his advice goes against the grain, such as “Don’t wad a home”, and “Don’t go to college”, but he actually makes a great deal of sense. It’s pretty much self-help anyway with a healthy dose of commiserating with a guy who just happened to figure it and do something about it.
