Review by: Mr. Bohemian on March 18, 2017 :
Hello, I'm Heaven's heavenly Doctor 2. You may recognize my rugged phrenology from my scattered modeling and acting gigs. In my office, I arrange appointments for indie books. While braving the perilous bargain bin of smashwords, I found this chipper little chap advertising "meditation" and "beauty". Alright, wise guy. The patient's form is short and sweet. A brief book testimony from a senior reader on reading. Mr. Hazzlewood creates the case that while all mediums of art are founded, reading creates the deepest dimension for humans. I felt that he won without dismissing music or visual arts or other. This book is a simple lecture reminder for anyone. As a playwright, director, and actor, my job at large is to put the script down, and live. But where else is my content? Lately, my reading impulses have been on the level with chores. The patient has inspired me to give up that derogatory. To those who don't read classics, he will advise you to start climbing. To all ye unfaitful, the author's Christian scope may be too distracting. I laughed when he mentioned the secularization of Buddhist meditation. I thought I was the only person who noticed that cosmopolitans treat yoga like a part time job. The patient received a sticker and lollipop for keeping his keister in five star health.
