This book was really repetitive. I thought that the ideas that were presented were interesting and engaging, but I found it difficult to get past the repeating sentences. And I mean word for word repeating here, not just theme repeating. There was one page that repeated the same phrase 9 times. That is just evil. There were several times that I had to set this book aside. I came back to it because I wanted to think about what was being discussed, but there were times that I thought it might become an abandoned book. There aren’t too many of those. If you can get past the writing style, it is thought provoking and worth your time.So, this book is about mindfulness which is part of the Buddhist faith and Zen philosophy. I think that it does well in expressing the concept of mindfulness even though the focus was on alleviating the fear of death.
