“A Better Ten Commandments is a compilation of humanities most timeless wisdom and illuminates a path to meaning and purpose in life that takes nothing on faith. It’s about who we are, what we want, and what truly matters in life … the only life you can count on.”
Firstly I would like to start by thanking the author, James Miller, for sending me a free copy for review of his book. I greatly appreciate it.
Now when I first saw this book offered to me in my inbox I have to admit I wasn’t sure what to think at first, was I going to be preached at for 110 pages? However I was so wrong, lesson learnt I guess; don’t judge a book by its cover or its description, just read it.
Now I have previously reviewed one other book on here that falls into the same genre as this one, non-fiction, philosophy, self-help even, you can find that (here). I loved that book and I would definitely say A Better Ten Commandments is easily on par with it in my rankings.
A Better Ten Commandments is a faultless book, the advice is spot on and eye opening, it really opens up your mind to look at the bigger picture and change your perspective on things. I also really love how Miller has incorporated so many quotes into all 10 sections of the book and not a single one is a waste. I genuinely believe I have found my new favourite person for quotes thanks to this book, that being Thomas Edison.
Now this book might also been seen as quite controversial by some, from the name down to how the book actually argues against religious teachings and shows us as the reader how to open our eyes without being preached at, I really respect this and it made for a very interesting read.
Miller has written this book in a chatty and conversational tone in my opinion and I really liked this about it, it keeps you hooked into the read and with the added humour thrown in here and there makes for good entertainment as well as learning. Really I couldn’t praise this book enough, I will most definitely re-read A Better Ten Commandments again in my life time and probably more than just twice.
My rating: 5/5 STARS
