Review by: Jose Fernandez on Sep. 05, 2013 :
This is a great book that teaches us to live life to the fullest. and seize the day, it is good advice. Like the John
Lennon saying 'life is what happens to you when you make other plans' its very true. in this day of modern choice
we have so much to choose to do that we end up contemplating everything and end up with nothing. life is very simple
when you look at it. eat, be merry, have a wife, and child, enjoy family life, this is all quite normal things
that every man can choose to do.These elements, highlighted by the story of Siduri, are good tales to live by.

Regarding the story of the Epic of King Gilgamesh, it is a good introduction to this classic story and to the philosophies
of how we should live our lives.Simply put only too often get caught up, in life's plans when we should in fact learn to stop and smell the roses.
