In general, the two main reasons I consider this book a potential 'waste-of-time' are:
A. It focuses too much on esoteric questions without sufficient scientific proof and not enough on practical advice;
B. I listened to an audiobook version, and it was not a pleasant experience (this is subjective, of course).
Speaking about the first issue, I note that there is some controversy around spiritual practices, human life, and other topics at the centre of every religion. I am not sure this is the best book to read about it. I would probably start with the Holy Book (Bible, Quran and other texts like Tripitaka, the Vedas etc.). To give some flavour of the book's content, I have provided a few names of chapters and sections as well as the epigraph:
- 'You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold. That is how important you are!'
- Part 5 in Chapter 5: 'Christ: The Reality of Your Divine Presence'
- Part 8 in Chapter 7: 'Conscious Death'
