Review

This book is a very interesting book. Actually, I am converted in the middle of reading the book. It is because it is more logical and it really helps me to understand the world more.

It is an cheerful read and help me to understand myself more, especially on the what I am and how to live my life.  

I recommend this book because we shouldn’t only focusing on ourselves but also others; not only technical knowledge but also ethical knowledge.
