Overall sound advice, but I did not find it particularly well written or engaging. Not being particularly religious myself, I found the author's constant biblical references off-putting and disagreed with the assertion made throughout the book, equating spiritual happiness with subscribing to a religion (preferably Christianity), as opposed to simply embracing the fact that life has a higher purpose and deeper meaning and finding that meaning for yourself. The books advice often took on the form of a dull, monotonous lecture, a lecture aimed at 10-year-old children, not adults who already have a relatively firm grasp of the truths and concepts being expounded. I was furthur disappointed that in the entire book, there were only occasional references to Templeton's personal life story, experiences and virtually no investment advice whatsoever, despite the fact that investing was what Templeton was renowned for and the fact many readers would've purchased the book with that in mind. In conclusion, the book had its share of sound advice, but was overall a dull read. Two stars and that's out of respect to a great man, but not to a great book.
