This begins strongly. Eloquent yet accessible philosophy, but it loses traction somewhat as it gets to be repetitive toward the end. I have nothing bad to say about the way it is written, however, and is a welcome relief from disheartenment.
To my mind it is more of a self-help book written in stylised prose than it is a poetry book. The verses are oddly in more of a quotation format rather than more traditional poem styles, but it works.
I received a copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
