I expected the book to be a work of fiction. At the end, I am surprised to find that the book raised lots of questions within me. The concept of 'Oneness' that the author talks about, though discussed by many before, is fresh here, with anecdotes to bolster the idea. The author has skillfully woven the experience of two friends into making his idea clear. This will make many people caught in the slumber of their work wake from their stupor. Continue writing, dear author.
