Buddhist Boot Camp Reviews
First things first, I'm not religious and he's very clear that you can be totally free from religion or practice any faith and get something out of this book. He's right about that. The things he says fit into anyone's life and go against no religious belief that I'm aware of. I think they would only enhance anything you currently practice. This is a very quick read, but its a book I can see myself reading multiple times. There's nothing new or revolutionary here, but it is raw and honest and it ...more
I could easily fill this review with quotes from the book, but who really wants that? Instead I will say that this book felt very authentic to me. The author states his intentions right in the beginning: to awaken, enlighten, enrich, and inspire. This book is packed with stories, anecdotes, and wisdom that can only make the world a better place. It presents a different perspective on many things and it seems to be kind advice that would be acceptable in any religion. The author never comes acros ...more

Clear and concise and really hits the point home.
This book is written so beautifully I wish there were more like it. Offering the opportunity to read it in small byte sized pieces in any order you want. Using short stories to explain the philosophy without claiming any rights to rules or commandments. It is truly written by a buddha who understands the philosophy.
I enjoyed this book and felt like I got a lot of interesting tidbits out of it. I like his perspective on many things and makes me want to delve more into Buddhism. The narration by the author was excellent as well.
Chicken Soup for the Buddhist Soul.
OK, I admit to having not finished much of this book, partly because the more I thought about the author's name, the less I felt able to renounce my desire to punch him in the face. Also, as far as I can tell, this guy is like the Joel Osteen of Buddhism. He takes all the positive, attractive, new-agey sounding love stuff and leaves out anything smacking of critical self-examination or of being enlightened to the actual, literal meaninglessness of life, the un ...more
