Norma Smith, a retired nurse-practitioner and a graduate from Columbia University wrote the following review of my book ‘Sapiens and Sthitaprajna’. Thanks so much, Norma Smith!

“I read this book since people today are still conflicted about what constitutes a wise person. I had studied Seneca and Stoicism years ago but had never read anything in the Bhagavadgita. I found it fascinating that these two philosophers who lived centuries and continents apart, both were so concerned about the same topic, though there were differences in how each approached how wisdom was expressed. I think anyone else interested in exploring these concepts will find Dr. Mokashi’s book very helpful and full of interesting references for further study. “
