I loved reading this book. The importance of Kopp's book has been paramount to me in the past month. I think that the means of owning your own uniqueness and knowing that God has created people as they are is important for anyone. The prompt to find a life unique unto oneself is important to continue on in hope and love for the person searching for fulfillment. Fulfillment is different than searching for God; however, finding that God is fulfilling the uniqueness in each person is comforting and...
A 3.5I liked this book a little less than If You Meet The Buddha…. It was a little less impactful, but still good to think about. Kopp’s ideas and beliefs resonate with what I have discovered in my own live in the last 5 or so years. It is good to read to focus back on in on what is important. My favorite statement of his in this book was on relationships, and how we need to find ones that work for us, regardless if they fit within the accepted view of “normal.” Relationships don’t need to make
There are some nice moments in this book, but in the end, I didn't find it all that helpful. He's got a great message - be the unique human you are and keep transforming - but his stories are meandering and confusing and I really don't like the section where he basically breaks down famous peoples' lives and deemed them either "brilliant" or "failures," depending on how their lives turned out (spoiler alert: the "failures" usually kill themselves).

Be yourself. Everyone else is taken. That sums up the 117 pages of the book. I rather liked it, and maybe there are words of wisdom for those who are still bound up in other people's opinions. It felt like a money machine for a successful author who has run out of things to say. It was very thin.
This is a quick read. It is about half of the size of most of the other Sheldon Kopp books. Don't let the size fool you, it is still packed cover to cover with great advice and knowledge. The epilogue of the book was clever in that it was basically a summarized list of most of the main points throughout the book. I plan on developing it into some sort of poster.
Good perspective on the homeless children. Sometimes hard to read.
warm, funny, revolutionary, life changing
The Epilogue is 2 pages approx. and worth a skim read even if some of the points are a little trite.The notes at the end will point you to some excellent reading material. That's about all I have to say..
