I feel a little funny assigning books like this stars and reviewing them, but here goes. I've tried to read this book several times in my life, and got stuck every time. This last fall, I asked a friend to read it with me, to help with motivation, and I set a schedule of 50 to 100 pages per week so we wouldn't get stopped.
"No," she said. "This book is not for study, it is for medicine. A little bit at a time."
And she was right. It took me months, but I got through it, reading a couple talks at a time. What stopped me before was how repetitive it is. Of course it's repetitive. He was traveling and giving a bunch of talks, to a new audience nearly every time. He needed to get a basic message across, and it's repetitive. So trying to read too much of it at once it maddening.
But bit by bit, it's medicinal.
