Life Changing - An outlook of Love

Seldom have i been so engrossed by a book especially a self help type of book. Fortunately or unfortunately, I have been advised to read thru this book by my "adopted " twin. Having picked up this book on Friday evening, I have not been able to put it down since yesterday. I only took time off reading it when either at Gym or when I fell asleep.

The book deals with
a) Discipline
b) Love
c) Growth and Religion and
d) Grace

The topic about Love really fascinate me. In this area, the author dissect the topic and manages to peel of layers of issues and challenges about this emotion we call love. Being a psychiatrist, he rationalize and explains this topic well using case studies. He also organizes the topic in clearly define areas/sections to support his justification and arguments and to the point that I would call him Dr Love. I didn't know that Love can be articulated in such a rational and almost scientific manner. In fact some of the thought put forward parallels what I have always felt, but I have not been able to organize and contextualize in this manner.

I can relate to many of the examples in this book and see it as a very therapeutic reference, in fact almost like a mirror of one's soul. In fact, i may have used countless excuses to justify my inadequacies. I can only but be thankful to the person who has pointed me to this book. She may have changed my whole outlook of life.
