Reviewed by Janelle Fila for Readers' Favorite

Wisdom on How to Live Life (Book 5): Transforming Earth into Heaven by Tommy S.W. Wong is the hypothetical story of the sixth conversation between Tom and Guru Harry. Guru Harry is a compilation of someone wise, from a strong spiritual background, who gives advice on how to live a peaceful, more loving, harmonious, and joyful life. Some of the topics covered in this sixth conversation include exactly how to enjoy a better life, how to experience life on Earth as if living the life of your dreams (or your personal Heaven), how to know what is your life's vocation or choice of study, how to impact the world positively, the best advice and answers to give future generations, a lesson on forgiveness, and a lesson on helpfulness.

I am on a spiritual journey so I was very interested in the topics of this story. I almost wished Guru Harry wasn't a fictionalized character but was a real guru because I believed in a lot of what he had to share. This book reminded me a lot of the book Ishmael, which is a fiction book about deep, spiritual ideas. There is a conversation there as well, where one "guru" (in the form of a bear) shares his wisdom with a man in order to educate future generations. I think the interview style is a creative way to present this book and I liked the ideas and suggestions.
