Everyone loves a good fable, and this is certainly one. The protagonist is Julian Mantle, a high-profile attorney with a whacked-out schedule and a shameful set of spiritual priorities. Of course it takes a crisis (heart attack) to give Mantle pause. And pause he does--suddenly selling all his beloved possessions to trek India in pursuit of a meaningful existence. The Himalayan gurus along the way give simple advice, such as, "What lies behind you and what lies before you is nothing compared to what lies within you." Yet it is easy to forgive the story's simplicity because each kernel of wisdom is framed to address the persistent angst of Western white-collar professionals.

Kiwi Best Buy reserves the right to directly pass on any additional rural delivery fees we incur from our courier company.
To avoid these extra fees we recommend you use an alternative address such as a PO Box or urban work address - which will save you the rural delivery fee.
Unfortunately, we must charge this additional fee because rural delivery operators are subcontracted by Courier Companies to deliver your parcel from the nearest Post Office. Courier Post & Pass The Parcel on-charge this fee to Kiwi Best Buy.
How do I check the status of my order?
Most orders are shipped via Courier Post, although at times we may use Pass The Parcel for Rural Delivery.
When your courier has been booked, you will receive an email notification from us which will include a tracking number you can use to check its status. Please allow 48 hours for the tracking information to become available.
If you haven’t received your order, first, check your tracking number for any updates - this will also confirm which courier company is delivering your package.
