The Book of Man is an insightful book by Osho on the new man ? a rebel who is constantly in search of his original self, the one who is ready to drop all masks, pretensions and hypocrisies.
Summary of the Book
The Book of Man presents the author?s ideas of the new man, based on his discourses, which take readers through the various stages of evolution of man. Today, man is becoming alienated from his inner self and is in a mindless quest for worldly successes. But Osho asserts that it is more important to rediscover the innate qualities like love and compassion, and tread the path of ideal men like the Buddha and other enlightened souls. The book is filled with several anecdotes as well as Osho?s witty and perceptive answers to questions asked by his followers.
