I found it fairly shallow in a "spiritual sense". Its not a book i would ever refer back to for spiritual guidance. I would describe it as fast-food wisdom!

I am getting through it but, finding it shallow in terms of Eckhart or Millman. Personally, I preferred Millman over everything I've come across. I prefer the story format and the truths they both point to are essentially the same one.

Read it quite a few years ago and it's been unopened on the shelf ever since. Spiritually shallow is accurate, I'd say. For those who like the story format I'd recommend Way of the Peaceful Warrior and Celestine Prophecy.
