My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First of all, Best Title EVER!

And absolutely fantastic COVER–everyone should spend at least one afternoon reading this in their local Coffee Shop…

The book is YACODT (Yet Another Collection of Dharma Talks) which is a format I am rather bored of–this one is has better editing & a more consistent tone than many in the format, but still it would be NICE if we could get some more rigorous theology.

The early sections focus on Work is great. The sex is old school boring-people who came of age pre AIDS talk about sex in a strange mystical way (lacks body logic). The Money section is solid and leads to some nice discussion around Karma which mostly ends out the book.

Worth reading during the pandemic, but not Rinpoche’s best work.
