Thick Face, Black Heart - Final Review

Yours Truly are going to post something on the book Thick Face Black Heart by Chin Ning Chu again. This will be the final review, well sort of because it would be more to just quote some of the nice phrases and also quotes in the book.

Part 3

That done, lets continue to the final review shall we? =p

Overall, all the chapters shows one on how to have a thick face and black heart without being ruthless and that it is the very nature of human behavior. The only reason why us can't utilize it or realize it, is that we are influenced by the so called morale, ethics, culture, and upbringing that more often than not would be on the losing side of everything. To know more, just get the book... ( No, I am not getting paid for this... =p. Just felt that it is a good book to give some different perspective on things/life.)

Anyway, back to the example of quotes. As I said before, the book is full with quotes from famous ppl or book in which some are quite enlightening.
