I've heard better and have been more inspired but he did clarify a few things or put them in different perspective
"Food for thought"
This collection of essays gives a lot to think on! Readers of the zen habits blog will be familiar with Leo Babautas writing. i.e. his deep thoughts contrasted with only occasional condescension and high handedness. A lot of good work here though, a must for anyone who craves a simpler minimal lifestyle
"What a wack job."
Don't worry, be happy! While you are at it, don't educate your kids, don't set expectations for anything or anybody, don't have goals. In fact do whatever you want when you want. Basically live like they did back in the sixties. Just run around like a free spirit and let the wind plow you where it may. Don't get me wrong. I love the Dalia Lama and he even suggests reading the Art of Happiness. The difference for me is the Dalia Lama believes in science and education. He stands on principles. He's not a free spirit without goal.
If this is the type of thing you are interested in stick to the Dalia Lama or Matthieu Richard.
"The Zoo Monkey's Mantra"
Never again would I waise money for Leo's cliam on insanity!
Uneducated (or could that be overeducated to the point of madness?) author speaks of thinks that he has no clue about.
In general, ideas are good for the zoo monkey that's been fed by someone and has nothing to do in life, no aspirations, no dreams, no goals - just eat the banana you have no idea where it comes from.
I'd say there were coulpe points I would've live, but the whole book's poor idea really outshone it...
