Why Siddharta?

It might be interesting to begin writing about the book before it’s even been read. The process of choosing a book is probably the most pivotal part of the experience, at least for the book in question. It seems simple enough, without its being chosen a book will not be read.

I think the theme of the book as written on its back cover (“The true profession of man is to find his way to himself.”) is something I’ve thought a little about recently and I’d like to explore the ideas of “way” and “self” a little further.
