Grow Your Spiritual Intelligence by Guru Das

Genre: Inspirational, Non fiction

Rating: 2.5/5

I picked this book with a lot of hope that it would offer some insights into how one can grow in spiritual intelligence. I was disappointed, what started off well was really hard to finish later. I read it till the last page since I had a resolution not to put away a book in the middle. I struggled really hard with this book. It took me a month to complete when it’s a small book of 62 pages.

The topics selected are very good and the start to each topic is excellent. The content then strays as the author has tried to break down each topic into sub-topics. The result is that there is no clear connection established and the topic seems disjointed. The inclusion of Ramayana is good but biased towards males. Sita is treated as a side party to exploring the virtues of the ideal man, Rama. The discussion and treatment of the text seem focused on highlighting the virtues of Rama.

The topics are not discussed in a uniform manner and the writing gets confused, lacking clarity in delivering a point. Too much is discussed which makes the whole book a potpourri without any distinctive highlight.

I received an ARC for an honest review. These are my personal views and not biased towards the author or publisher.

Words do not describe a person. I am many things and yet nothing. I am an avid reader, reading her way through the pages of life. Some stories warm the heart and yet others have let me dry. I am a result of my life, and yet my life is part a result of me. Don't try to figure me.
