Yes, but it was the author’s quest to learn how to define “quality” that ended up being his downfall.So if the reader can get past some of the high minded philosophical ideas put forth, you'll see the the book is really about learning.
I probably liked more of the book than I didn’t. It was the first philosophy book I have ever read. I got a little lost in the difference between eastern and western philosophies.
Full disclosure..... I liked the book enough to buy it so sometime in the future (.... the far ahead future.....), I could read it again and understand it more.
