Mar 15, Nathaniel Hathaway rated it it was hawksye. I bought this budfhist an audible book. Something I think everyone should truly listen to. It’s something that I wish I had heard about 20 years ago. It’s almost like having a conversation with a new friend that’s already made all the mistakes you have and gives gentle advice. Oct 30, Erin rated it it was amazing. After posting on FB the other day that Buddhost had some soul-searching to do, a friend offered to mail me a copy of this book.
First off, I will admit I did not have much knowledge about Buddhism prior to reading this book. And I should add I am definitely not a religious person to say the least.
I have my own personal beliefs but religion as a whole turns me off. This book resonated so much with me. And yes it’s tr After posting on FB the other day that I had some soul-searching to do, a friend offered to mail me a copy of this book. And yes it’s true, a lot of it is nothing new, I think we all need reminders quite often of how we should be living vs. And sometimes we need to buddhistt it from someone else before it clicks and actually makes sense.
I won’t pretend that I am a better person overnight for having read it, but instead I have recognized the areas in my life that I hqwkeye to work on and improve.
By the time I read the last page, it just seemed like I had a better vision of the world and my life – as if I had been wearing foggy glasses and removed them. I can tell this is a book I will read over and over again in my journey to being a better human being – because as I said, I think we all need reminders when we loose sight of what is important.
I’ve highlighted passages that just clicked for me and I am sure that each time I read it, I’ll take away something new from it. I particularly liked that it wasn’t a self help book in the sense of do x,y,z and this will happen – instead it was general pearls of wisdom that one can put to use to become more at peace and happier, inside and out. Dec 13, Kelli rated it really liked it Shelves: I could easily fill this review with quotes from the book, but who really wants that? Instead I will say that this book felt very authentic to me.
The author states his intentions right in the beginning: This book is packed with stories, anecdotes, and wisdom that can only make the world a better place.
It presents a different perspective on many things and it seems to be kind advice that would be acceptable in any religion. The author never comes acros I could easily fill this review with quotes from the book, but who really wants that?
The author never comes across as preachy or even hokey. This reads like a conversation with a trusted friend offering solid, positive insights and suggestions to help improve your outlook and attitude toward yourself, others, and life. I’m certain this would be a great audiobook and I may have to investigate that soon. It would be a good gift for high school graduation. Apr 17, me rated it liked it Shelves: This book reminds me of Tiny Buddha, Simple Wisdom.
This is a nice and somewhat innocent book. Being in the second half of my life, I find the author young. The other thing I find with this book is that it doesn’t address deep pains such as war, poverty, trauma, rape,genocide, loss, betrayal, etc. The book would have been great for me to read when I was a teen.
Overall, I hope he continues to write as he ages. Younger people can definitely benefit.
Mar 04, Emmy rated it it was amazing. First things first, I’m not religious and he’s very clear that you can be totally free from religion or practice any faith and get something out of this book. He’s right about that. The things he says fit into anyone’s life and go against no religious belief that I’m aware of. I think they would only enhance anything you currently practice.
This is a very quick read, but its a book I can see myself reading multiple times. There’s nothing new or revolutionary here, but it is raw and honest and it First things first, I’m not religious and he’s very clear that you can be totally free from religion or practice any faith and get something out of this book.
There’s nothing new or revolutionary here, but it is raw and honest and it is stuff we should all know and be doing. Jun 12, Deborah rated it it was amazing. I bought this book, I read it, and then I bought more copies to give to my friends. It’s a great little book that you can dip in and out of and refer to when you need a little clarity in your life. Every page is a separate read. If everyone lived with these principles, the world would be a wonderful place.
I highly recommend it. Very basic, but OK for those who are new to Buddhism. The author does not appear to have a lot of experience with Buddhism. Some of the ideas Buddhist thought he presents is incorrect. However, this is a book I could recommend to someone who could benefit from adding some simplicity and less ego to their life.

There were moments and messages in Hawkeye’s book that, while not necessarily groundbreaking or new, are worth repeating.
Timber Hawkeye–Buddhist Boot Camp
One of his messages is to increase gratitude for life; by “feeding” gratitude more than anger or fear, those other negative emotions will atrophy. This is definitely one I need to work on. The hawekye about Hawkeye’s personal life is scattered throughout, and this creates a fascinating, sometimes jarring experience with his Zen teachings.
I almost wish he wrote a straight-ou There were moments and messages in Hawkeye’s book that, while bhddhist necessarily groundbreaking or new, are worth repeating.
I almost wish he wrote a straight-out chronological autobiography of his life showing how Buddhism has helped him conquer considerable demons; THAT would be an interesting book! Some of these anecdotes are warm and make their point well, such as Hawkeye facing his fear of hxwkeye while staying at a friend’s home.
However, there are several random moments where I am pulled out of “Buddhist Boot Camp” with a bark of surprise laughter. For buddist, when Hawkeye was young, his mother comments that he is getting “chunky. You think this is just a flippant response to a nosy clerk
