    I have heard many great things about this one, and even read a few more balanced reviews like yours. And so this book is on my TBR, but I don’t think I would be able to get to it any time soon. And after reading your review, it looks like it’s okay if I don’t rush.

      Thanks for stopping by, Shantala. I too have seen people raving about the book. It is not a bad book. Just that it has way too much emphasis on longevity and the interviews.

    Your review is pretty balanced and I can say that as I have read the book. I enjoyed reading this book and as you said it, it doesnt give you tools to employ but rather discusses ways to live a fulfilling life. I loved the message in the book and would recommend it as a definite read.

    This is the most balanced review of the book that I’ve read. Weirdly enough none of the glowing reviews made me want to pick it up but yours does make me want to give it a shot.

    […] couldn’t help comparing it to Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life that I read last month. The two books are quite similar in […]
