    One thought on “Reinventing Truth”

    1. Philosophical book that challenges many common beliefs in the fields of psychology, the spiritual path, and eastern and western religions. I didn't necessarily agree with everything, but am still thinking about many of the topics he raises, and found everything to be interesting reading.

    2. Interesting read, got some things out of it, felt like it was padded with what IMOH was a load of rubbish (spiritual things I don't believe in, e.g. past lives).
