I had a close friend in college recommend this book very highly so he would say five stars. He converted from Buddhism and I think found the book especially helpful. I was underwhelmed after how highly he had built up the book. However, I think it would be a great choice for those dealing with death, illness, or old age at present. It might also be a nice Easter season treat-- two per day. Otherwise I would prefer to just read an entire book by a saint, or one entire work on heaven, and not have any reflection in between.
