5.0 out of 5 stars An impactful read
By Richa on 8 August 2019
Its a very good book but honestly the second book by Haemin Sunim is more wonderful. I bought this book first but completed his second book "LOVE FOR IMPERFECT THINGS" prior to that. The illustrations are too good to resist. I bought both kindle and hardcopy editions.The book covers many good topics and gives peace. One can sought many answers from it.

I’m really disappointed about this “book”. It’s not a book it’s collections quotes but not even good ones.
