About this deal
Title of this post speaks for itself. TFM is an incredibly rare individual of our time that is willing to truly question life and discover answers. He inspires you to deeply connect with yourself and find your purpose in this life. His writing style in this book reminds me of Miyamoto Musashi who is an ancient philosopher that had an incredible perspective and understanding of life. This book is a very easy read; 2-3 hours at most. Easily covered in a single evening or at night before bed.

Waley chose to translate the entirety of the introductory and ending chapters, as well as three episodes, each several chapters long, of the journey to the west. Clever, wise, heartbreaking and yet also life-affirmingly funny: his literary comic lightness of touch is on a par with Wodehouse. JOANNE HARRIS, bestselling author of Broken Light and Chocolat
