Growing up, I was always taught to fight any injustice that was serious enough. This book didn't let me accept what I was going through.
It brings up ALOT of questions on difficult matters but after some anecdote it moves on to another question and the pattern repeats itself. I was left with more questions but little answers. What i will say is good about the book is that it is a good introduction to Buddhist teachings and philosophy. If you are really struggling with hardships in your life id look elsewhere.
