Spirituality 1.2 For The Disconnected From The School Of Life: A Review For Tekkies (Spirituality for the School of Life)
Publisher : Independent
Description

Finalist 2015 IAN Best Book Award
¿Can our spirituality be explained through the use of technology?

In his first book, Spirituality 101, Dr. Iván Figueroa-Otero presents a guide to self-understanding while closing the apparent gap between the religious and scientific vision with an eclectic and original delivery.

This version (1.2) is a deliciously funny, tongue-in-cheek update, where every concept, idea, image and advice is carefully defined with technological elements like virtual domains, bits, and RAM. Here, the questions, Who am I? Where do I come from? Where am I going? the human race has been studying for centuries are explained in a way accessible to anyone with a smartphone or a computer.

"Imagine our Universe as a big computer, where the quality of its computation is directly proportional to the quality of the input data. And where every programming error is reversible and re-programmable, with a little bit of patience!"

Iván Figueroa-Otero, MD FACS

Maria Beltran Readers Favorite
In Spirituality 1.2, Dr. Figueroa talks about a wonderful web of ideas that unfolds into an organized guide through "the Cyber Network" of one's life.
More importantly, Spirituality 1.2 is highly insightful and offers its readers a unique perspective. While meant to reach out to younger audiences. It will not come as a surprise if the effects of his book become far reaching in the spirituality category.
 
Maria Beltran for Readers' Favorite
 Dr. Figueroa-Otero has done it again - after the
success of his self-published first book, Spirituality 101, he has updated his concepts in Spirituality 1.2. This time intended for the "tekkie"generation, Figueroa brilliantly bridges spirituality with science, using technological terminology as metaphors to philosophical and scientific concepts that are at times quite huge to grasp altogether. His playful presentation (such as his tongue-in-cheek explanations, tests, reviews and final exam) easily opens up readers to better comprehension.

Samantha Coville Readers Choice
If I had to describe this book in one sentence it would be: what a hoot!
This was so much fun to read because the author's unique
perspective on an overwritten topic. Dr. Figueroa makes
everything easy to understand, and delivers it in a fresh way that I believe will resonate with multiple age groups.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is in love with their technology, and who is interested in the deeper questions in life. This is a riot of a read that I think you will thoroughly enjoy. I'm curious to see what the author will think of next!
 
Janelle Alex, Ph.D. for Readers' Favorite 4 Stars It is well written, colorful and eye-catching. Breathe deep, settle into a
quiet space, and open your heart and mind so that you may absorb and
comprehend the complex ideas, computer jargon, and unique spiritual
terminology. Spirituality 1.2 is a book like none other. Figueroa-Otero
shares a rare opportunity on how to connect to and deepen your
spirituality from a very modern perspective.
