Awaken You Wonderful We: How do we create heaven on earth? The secrets of one-page table reveal the real causes of all phenomena and problems by Van Duy Dao is a nonfiction book that displays all the elements to prove that the world is a giant hologram of interdependent phenomena. It tackles the most popular health problems, causes, symptoms, and recommendations. While most of the modern medications only make temporal relief, Van introduces readers to the Eastern philosophy, traditional medicines, healing techniques, and the advantages of using them. Aside from not having a harmful side-effect, the knowledge compiled in this book can save the readers from spending a great amount of money. Curious? Read it!

The information in this book came from a wide variety of educational and research sources. All references were detailed enough with citations and website links without stepping on the copyright-infringement gray zone. The weird traditions and strange habits from around the world were also cited. All of them were new to me other than the use of Henna art during Muslim weddings and the foot-binding issue in China. Scientific research, experiments, and theories were mentioned, too. My heart was squeezed when the Russian scientists in the late 1990s, were experimenting on telepathy using a mother rabbit with her eight newborn kits. The 9 rabbits were killed in the process.

The book's detailed presentations involved not only a lot of quotes from both less popular and known personalities, but also an image, poems, song lyrics, informative stories, and tabulations. The author did a great job at listing the alternative medicines and healing techniques to achieve a happy and healthy life. I found the traditional medicines and healing techniques very useful because I am using them. I am not dependent on the modern drugs. Among the quotes in this book, I liked this self-explanatory quote from Confucius: “By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is the noblest; second, by imitation, which is the easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”

Even though I lauded the author for his efforts in compiling every little detail, there were matters noted which I didn't agree on. To name one, the author wrote that "our gods" died due to the ignorance of the people and used the death of Jesus (peace be upon him) as an example. Jesus (peace be upon him) is not my God. In Islam, he was Allah's messenger. All the messengers were mortals. My God, Allah (S.W.T.), is the Almighty, the Ever-living, and the Self-subsisting One. I noticed that this book's table of contents was found at the back. It would have served its purpose if it had been in the front pages. A plethora of subjects overwhelmed me. I suggest keeping the most related matters only and making the book succinct. The grammar errors and syntax problems prevented me from giving this book a perfect rating.

My final rating for this book is 3 out of 4 stars. I will not hesitate to bump it up after a round of thorough proofreading and editing. I recommend this book to the mature readers only because there were matters tackled that young minds can't understand yet. Those who are interested to know more on the Eastern philosophy, traditional medicines, and healing techniques should start sinking their teeth on this book. However, those who are not into lengthy reads and those who are not interested in the topics I stated above should better find other books to read.

This sounds like a book for deep thinkers. It doesn't really capture my attention right now, but I'm glad you were able to enjoy it. Great job on the review!

I skipped reading this book severally because I didn't think i would enjoy it. I seem to have gotten a better view after reading the review. The medicinal aspect of it is great and will enable people save a fortune. I also like the learning of wisdom through experience, really the toughest.

No doubt the book provides the rich knowledge on eastern philosophy and medicine. This book reminds me of another book like this, "Health Tips, Myths and Tricks." Anyways, you did a great job by putting all aspects together. Thanks for this honest review.

This book is most likely not an easy read. As a christian I am sure there would be some ideas that would not align with my faith. The reason for Jesus Christ's death for one. However, I am curious sort and genuinely enjoy reading as widely as possible. Why would the table of contents be found at the back? That is a new one.

All references were detailed enough with citations and website links without stepping on the copyright-infringement gray zone.
This must have been quite tricky. :tiphat:
Great review by the way!

Great job summarizing what is a very complex concept for a book. You sound like an expert. This book is no my idea of enjoyable reading. Amazing job reviewing such a scientific book!

Thank you so much for your detailed review! I'm really not into these kind of books, but the information is great. Since I'm from the East part of the world, I pretty much know a lot about this side.
