    I have read books in the past where after finishing the book and putting it down I have said.ehthis was worth my time Others were clearly not worth the time Snow Rising for me was a unique experience I put the book down after finishing and I felt like a different person than before I picked it up Not only was this book worth my initial read it has continued to be worth my time as I have picked it up and mined it again for nuggets of worth Obviously, I highly recommend this book Baldw I have read books in the past where after finishing the book and putting it down I have said.ehthis was worth my time Others were clearly not worth the time Snow Rising for me was a unique experience I put the book down after finishing and I felt like a different person than before I picked it up Not only was this book worth my initial read it has continued to be worth my time as I have picked it up and mined it again for nuggets of worth Obviously, I highly recommend this book Baldwin does a good job of balancing some very intense concepts about how to effectively approach relationships and telling a story He does this in such a way that you don t feel like you are being lectured to, in fact I found myself identifying with some of the flawed characters what does that say about me This read is for someone who is interested in pondering what is going to bring joy and happiness in this world and in our relationships This read is also for someone who is truly interested in living the well examined lifeyou can tell Baldwin feels deeply about these subjects and that he has spent years formulating these ideas Love the bookI highly recommend it

    I have mixed feelings about this book It is really a self help book very thinly disguised as a novel I believe it would have read much better if the author would have left the novel part out of it and talked frankly about his own life and the principles he believes in While the truths of the book are profound it kind of felt like truth for dummies in the telling of it I think anyone struggling to find peace and meaning in their life would benefit from the principles, which makes me kind of I have mixed feelings about this book It is really a self help book very thinly disguised as a novel I believe it would have read much better if the author would have left the novel part out of it and talked frankly about his own life and the principles he believes in While the truths of the book are profound it kind of felt like truth for dummies in the telling of it I think anyone struggling to find peace and meaning in their life would benefit from the principles, which makes me kind of sad because, with the way the message is presented, I m afraid it will be discovered by very few

    This was well written, in an informational style but with characters to run a minor storyline It reminded me of The Shack, but without the religious fervor, this book could appeal to anyone regardless of religion The discussion on the whole belief system basically underpins an emphasis on character, which is one of my interests so it kept me reading Couldn t help wishing throughout that Wall Street execs could read and take in what Baldwin espouses Worth the read for the thought provo This was well written, in an informational style but with characters to run a minor storyline It reminded me of The Shack, but without the religious fervor, this book could appeal to anyone regardless of religion The discussion on the whole belief system basically underpins an emphasis on character, which is one of my interests so it kept me reading Couldn t help wishing throughout that Wall Street execs could read and take in what Baldwin espouses Worth the read for the thought provoking elements

    This is a self help book in the form of a novel.
