This little book has a definite place on the library shelf. Singer, a psychotherapist and seeker of truth, has assembled a variety of quotations and written meditations and real-life applications for them. What makes his book interesting is that in an Asian context the quotations are pan-cultural; that is, Chinese, Buddhist, Japanese, and Hindu sources stand side by side, implying, probably rightly, that all of Asian thought, considered together, is characteristically different from Western ways of thinking. –Library Journal
