This book is a collection of tutorial stories. They teaches the importance of motivation, self confidence, looking for happiness and determination. They teach you, what to do if a burden of your problems seems too big, if envy obscures eyes, if it seems like life doesn’t entertain you anymore. This book shows you all the answers, you just have to let them teach you. The writer often remembers his teacher Ajahn Chah from the north-east, which was also teaching by telling stories, most of them Ajahn  Brahm remembers, and shares in his book. Hi wrote this book inspired by his fan, this woman suffered from severe depression and Ajahn Brahm stories saved her from a suicide, this event encouraged him to release this book.
