From meditation techniques, tips, tricks to discussing the everyday way of life and everyday issues this book touches on so many subjects that there is no way that you can read this book without growing – even just a little bit. And sometimes, the tiniest steps can take you the furthest you have been in life.

Somewhere in this process, you will come face to face with the sudden and shocking realization that you are completely crazy. Your mind is a shrieking, gibbering madhouse on wheels barreling pell-mell down the hill, utterly out of control and helpless. No problem. You are not crazier than you were yesterday.
