The second part of the book is a more technical part concerning psychological matters. I don't think it's easy to understand all the technical aspects of it, especially for individuals inexperienced in this subject. It is also interesting nevertheless.
The first part really presents a world that renders any difficulty we might face in our lives trivial in comparison.
When you see yourself falling to self pity, remembering the first part of this book is going to be helpful.
