Osho was one of the famous Gurus in the 1980s who took the west by storm and was owner of 93 odd Roll Royces. Though his image was tarnished in the US and Indian media, he has not been given the due credit he deserves. He simplifies extremely difficult concepts in easy to understand manner. He has some thought provoking suggestions such as Communes that might not jive with everybody. It is up to the reader to filter the information. I strongly recommend this book and his main message is to MEDITATE.
I find Tara’s story very compelling and authentic. She talks about her journey from having various mental/medical issues to having a healthy prescription drug free lifestyle. It is indeed remarkable for someone, who was overmedicated and popping nearly a dozen pills through most of her adult life to make such a drastic change. It reiterates that Change happens when one hits rock bottom and accepts that failure is no more an option and makes a shift for the better with positive beliefs

This is one of the best spiritual books told in non spiritual story telling way. Paulo was rejected initially by his publishers but then it just went on to become a global best seller. People like Julia Roberts, Bill Clinton and Madonna indirectly promoted the book as they were photographed with it. It is a fun read and highly recommend this book.
