Tiny Buddha by Lori Deschene
What started as an individual's struggle to survive, let alone find meaning in life resulted in this wonderful book called "Tiny Buddha". Right from the front cover to the last page/ back cover, everything is worth reading again and again.The struggle of the person (Lori Deschene, the author) who almost lost everything in life and then bounced back to create meaning in her life and so many million more is what makes this book extraordinary.
Starting with daily tweets through @tinybuddha, then moving on to creating website www.tinybuddha.com and finally resulting in this wonderful book by the same name. As the author says that the book is a collaborative effort of all the readers (of her tweets, blogs and questions) who contributed with their insights on queries pertaining to wisdom in daily life. The responses to the questions she posted resulted in this wonderful book.
The book is very neatly segregated into 9 sections/ categories some of which are Pain, Meaning and Change. Each section is very well carved out with lots of researched content(on the theme of the section), personal insights by the author, key messages(highlighted), tips, practical exercises and relevant tweets. All these elements put together gets the reader moving to apply and take action. Each section starts with posing a relevant question and this really sets the tone for more to follow.
It's a simple and honest book with no frills and that's what sets it apart from the rest of the pack. This is a book which you would want to finish in one go, no matter how much time it takes.The layout of the book is nice too!
