First of all, i'm not really good on writing a book review.
It was a week ago when i saw this book in my house. I'm getting curious about this book At the first glance. Why? Just take a look at the cover:
Okay, it's a spiritual book. Written by Ajahn Brahmavamso Mahathera (Ajahn Brahm). I'm not have any interest of spiritual books before. But this is different! Ajahn Brahm wrote it in a very interesting way. I like the way he wrote his book. He is a monk at thailandese buddhist monastery.
There were 108 chapters. This book tell us several funny story about his experience, and also a moral story in the end. Some stories was urban legend. Ajahn Brahm is really good on wrote his book. If you looking for a birthday present to your 30-something colleague, this might be a right choice.
Anyway,this kinda surprised me. Ajahn Brahm came from a working-class background, and won a scholarship to study Theoretical Physics at Cambridge University in the late 1960s. After graduating from Cambridge he taught in high school for one year before travelling to Thailand to become a monk.
So he must be a super-smart kid at his time. I have no idea why did he choose to be a monk.
he is british anyway
