The title was amazing.
When I first saw this book, it felt different from other books. The title was amazing. Some may even say the title is rather arrogant. The meaning of the title is astonishing, but the tone at first was more of urging; after reading the book, I felt a sense of persuasion. The calligraphic lettering in the cover page was unique and hard to decipher without the separate title being written. It was huge shock just by the title and calligraphy. Inside the book, the foreword also contained a remarkable content. As I headed home after reading the foreword, I was deep in thought. The fact that I eat, sleep and work, is this the true reason and purpose of being born as a human being? Even those who have succeeded in life seemed in vain when you consider the message of the book. Whether one is Bill Gates, Warren Buffet or a bum on the street – sleeping, waking up, eating, living and running around- when one dies, is that the end? I felt the futility of life and it felt like falling into a bottomless pit. When reading, the author emphasizes one thing continuously. Through different expressions, one point is emphasized repeatedly. As the title of the book, it focused on the method to live in the eternal land of happiness. This was expressed simply but logically. Whereas many intellectual books are written in their own typical grammatical fashion mixed with self-boasting, which make readers feel inferior, this book is written in easy words so anyone can read. I like this feature. The author is convincing all to read this book to enter into the land of happiness and to live forever. Anyone who read this book correctly would also know well what needs to be done.
