As expected, this book is an extraordinary collection of the trials and tribulations of those who survived the truly awful events of both the Nagasaki and Hiroshima bombs. The wonderful surprising part is that this is also a tale of the indominable human spirit and the beauty people can have in the face and aftermath of tragic and traumatic events. I can not empahsize enough how much I recommend this book. This book should be a requirement for every human being.
I will admit I have found Jack Kornfield a little less than interesting in the past but this audiobook (which is really a multi-day seminar) was truly interesting and helps me find peace on stressfull days. Each segment is short enough to make a really great point and then you can stop and ponder the segment before going to the next segment. Great delivery and information. Well worth the full price.
I thought this would be an interesting read along the lines of Malcolm Gladwell. Unfortunately, this is really a book more interested on promoting the author and how "brilliant" he is rather than telling an interesting story.
