Reviewed by Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite

Masters of Life on Good Life and Good Society by Dr. Tommy S.W. Wong presents, through conversations with two gurus, Guru Dick and Guru Harry, contrasting views on different aspects of life, like basic needs, social needs, longevity or religion. Questions such as “What is a good life?” and “What is the importance of money?” or “Why is there so much poverty on Earth?” are discussed, the answers greatly revealing the inner meanings. The contrasting answers from the gurus enhance the protagonist's appreciation of more worldly matters. For example, while discussing religion, a guru says, “So, religious spirituality is commonly referred to as religion and non-religious spirituality is referred to as spirituality.”

Masters of Life on Good Life and Good Society by Dr. Tommy S.W. Wong, through such exchanges, covers all aspects of life and living and in an easy manner and style. The author successfully manages to convey his messages through a collection of simple parables and equations. For example, the question of making people happy is presented along with another question, “How can a country become one happy family?” The answer to this question is that “They share resources." That leads him back to the original question of making people happy, and the answer becomes, “a country must share its resources among all citizens.” Or to the question of good society, the answer is more blunt – “Yes, a good society needs a good government and a good remuneration system. And no charity and no religion.” This is a book with big ideas presented in simple terms.
