Breakfast with Buddha
OK. I love this book. It’s one of the few books I’ve read where, after I finished it, I immediately began reading it a second time. I’ve written about it in two separate blog posts, and I have many friends who have read it and loved it after I suggested it to them. It’s a tale of a traditional white male on a long car trip with a stranger who at first comes off as a little off and maybe a bit crazy, then, starts to seems wiser by the minute. It’s wonderful. If you read my blog posts, you know that as I have aged, I find more and more peace and wisdom from Buddhist teachings. I also find that they are in line with Judeo-Christian philosophies as much as you want them to be. Our religions and philosophies do not need to be exclusive. That’s probably too much for a book review, but that’s what I’m saying. This book makes you think. As I’m writing this, I’m starting to think I should read it again.
