    Book Review

Reviewed by Dr. Robert Rose for Readers' Favorite

From The ZEN GAME title I thought this book would be about the power of meditation and the values of Buddh's Eight Fold Path. However, the subtitle is more accurate; it is "How to Win at the Game of Life Without Selling Your Soul."

Nancy Pristine states her goal is not about "winning," but on learning from experience. She also emphasizes that you shouldn't allow others to take advantage of you nor should you treat others badly.

Nancy's examples, anecdotes, and stories do a great job of informing us of the things we should be doing to make all our lives more civil, sane, and ethical. Her book deserves an audience.
