I read both books which helped me very much with my then situation. I also found a way through my difficulties with their help.
What I have since found always amusing and thought provoking is that two people may read the same book, receive the same “wisdom” yet proceed to make completely “opposing” decisions and still feel justified.
I have since become great friends with my ex, and we continue to have a warm and loving relationship which of course has benefited our children , and us, greatly.
Reading your books, and others, played a part in this…
I continued to read a lot more philosophy too. I am half Greek too which may or may not have something to do with it…
Thank you very much.
I have mentioned / promoted you on my latest blog post: Everyone’s a Buddha
May you continue to be a ‘midwife attending to the birth’ of ever more wisdom.
very best wishes

I don’t know if you’ve read it but about 3 years ago I by happenstance (synchronicity) picked up and read 5 times, a book by Dr. Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind.
I recommend it highly. I am looking forward to reading your new book as many times and gleaning every bit of wisdom I can from it … thank you!
Growing up a rebellious christian and then seeking the Yoga way I eventually ended up in Indian ashrams, only to find myself back into the throws of what’s “allowed” and “not-allowed”. His grasp of the “Middle Way” was such a revelation. One which I had obviously contemplated, but never managed to even understand the necessity to attain, let alone to make a goal.
The book allows us to look at the “Global Village” determining its value and the eroding of national characteristics and then uniquely applies this same knowledge, which we have been gleefully nodding our heads, to our very own lives mirroring what was so obvious about others problems, to our extremism’s. In his quite diplomatic way we are left having to face our own lives and compelled to look at them through his “middle way”.
Happiness, that elusive goal seems so easily reachable with a few moderate changes… and the nature of our suffering so unseemingly simple to shed. Thank you Sir, what a Great Book!

Now I’m 30 and I found your books. This is my second life turning point. Now I now there’s nothing concrete I’m looking for, it is the right path that I’m constantly revising in my mind. Now I know I will never stop searching, but finally I know why.
Thanks for your guidance.
I just achieved of reading your book “El poder del Tao” and it has been a very nice experience that has permit me “confirm” my ideas and intuitions about Tao philosophy. I have a blog from some years ago named “El medio dorado” that means “The golden middle” and I have just write a post ”Esencias del Tao para tiempos convulsos” based in especial phrases I have found in your fantastic book.
I think that ideas of this blog have very close connections with your thinking and I wait (I you have time to read it) that you enjoy it.

I have recently finished the reading (in Spanish) of “El ABC de la Felicidad” (“The Middle Way”) and, honestly, I have not the English vocabulary for fully expressing my impression. The book is, plainly, extraordinary.
Previously, I have read “Más Platón, Menos Prozac” and I found excellent both in its ideas and its writing quality.
Unfortunately, I am not a philosopher but a modest Journalist and Educator, devoted to write editorial articles and columns in LA PRENSA, the leading newspaper in Honduras, and socioplitical comments in Campus TV, a channel owned by the University of San Pedro Sula, my hometown.
I share the core of your thoughts and I intend to write on your job and speak to friends of mine who work in the Philosophy Departments of several colleges which operate in San Pedro Sula.
In the meantime, would you please consider to give “The Middle Way” to an editorial house in order to comprise the fundamental of its content in, say, some 250 or 300 pages?
I am sure that thousands of readers, in Latin America or wherever, would receive it with enthusiasm and support.
Please, forgive my poor English. It is all made in Honduras.

The reading of your book, “The middle way” –spanish version “El término medio”-, has been an amazing journey. It takes me several months to read it, because it´s so deep that I needed to stop and think about it along the way. I´m a lawyer, musician, and a father from Buenos Aires, and I can´t thank you enough for helping me to understand the source of many of the problems of the world, and for making me feel that every one of us can make a difference in our global community. I´m trying to follow “the middle way” every step of the way. Your book is a must read, congratulations and keep at the good work!
Your book Plato, Not Prozac was an inspiration. I have used it with many of my clients. I also developed a Succeeding at Life Journal which uses your process and develops it into a method of solving problems. I have seen this really help people think about and find answers to personal problems effectively and gain inner peace about their choices.
I am planning to read some of your other books as well. Thank you for inspiring me to write.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your book “The Middleway”
, as I read in the portuguese version “O Caminho do Meio”.
My daughter Maria Isabel gave it to me on my birthday, as the title
faced with many of our conversations and thoughts.
The book gave me more, much more I ever expected: a global
comprehension of culture, religion, politics , a surprising link of
Aristoteles, Buda and Confucio, a proposition of dialogs and a message
of love for mankind.

Thank you for your herculean work!
I learned a lot and changed my globalisation thinking!
