Book Review

Before going deep into analysing the book, let me introduce the title of the book Ikigai - The Japanese secret to a long and happy life. Many of you can now be able to understand a little bit about the book. When I was about to read the book, I was quite excited. I wanted to know the tactics/ lifestyle of the Japanese culture(especially Okinawans). Okinawans tend to live a long and happy life with fewer diseases.

When I began reading the book, I saw a quote, "Only staying active will make you want to live a hundred years." -Japanese proverb. Seeing the above-written quote, I understood that there exists no shortcut in life. Without hard work, you could not rise from where you stand now. If you believe in yourself, the entire universe could lift you to a whole new world.

Now I came across the most important page of any book, the index page. The book comprises nine chapters. Each chapter exhibits some knowledge or techniques used by Japanese culture. The language is pretty easy to understand. The book is remarkably encouraging with lots of stuff. If you want to know more, read the book.
