First, he does not push anyone into his religion, he believes in all religions. This is hands-down the best self help book you could ever possibly read! His message is one that is simply: love and compassion to all regardless of one's ideologies, religion, race, or the economy. He is the most down-to-earth person you could ever imagine. In my opinion this should be read by everyone including our high school kids. The end chapters are about the atrocities going on today in Tibet.
