Irritating, pretentous book

"Life Without Stress" is a thoroughly irritating book, but from an entirely different direction. Dr. Arthur Sokoloff is a dentist who discovered, on a number of trips to the Far East, Buddahism, Zen and other religions. He views life through equally rose-colored glasses, and seeks to encourage us to mend our spiritually deprived Western lives with an infusion of Far Eastern beliefs.

His gee-whiz writing betrays a considerable lack of depth and a profound belief in his abilities as a spiritual leader. "In writing this book, I have stripped away more than two thousand years of material that has clouded the original wisdom of the great thinkers of Asia," he proclaims. I can't wait to see what he does to Christianity and Judiaism.
