Those seeking happiness amidst the suffering or disillusionment of day to day life will find hope in reading Waiting for Westmoreland. Those seeking redemption for past mistakes, will also find a means to achieve it. The book is the true story of a 20th century Candide—an innocent growing up in America in the fifties. As a boy, the author suffers the death of loved ones. Spending a year in Vietnam corrupts him. Then the political realities of the war and Watergate shatter his idealistic illusions about America. He searches for tools to reform the country that failed him. His quest becomes a frustrating pursuit. Finally, he meets a person who tells him about the life philosophy of Buddhism. He learns that the credit or blame for all of life’s events lies within—not from others. Looking for happiness outside oneself is fruitless. Only by taking personal responsibility for one’s own life can one be truly happy. Reforming oneself, rather than changing others,... More > leads to a better world.< Less

    "Great book; enjoyable read" It's rare that I read a book through from cover to cover without rotating it out between 4 or 5 other books I'm reading at the same time, but for this book I read it all the way through without picking up the many other books I'm currently reading. I was very encouraged that regardless of the troubles John Maberry faced throughout all the ordeals in his life, he was able to grow and learn from each of them and eventually overcome them. Through his journey he was able to find his way to a Buddhist philosophy that puts all of life's challenges in perspective and allows one to appreciate where they brought him. I recommend this book to everyone! Timothy Harada, Author of the Buddhist disovery novel, "Myth Shattering"
