I am home sick and will bring the book in hopefully by Friday,

A comforting and sane voice for those seeking solace, advice, and healing.

This was a fantastic book. Not too preachy or wordy. Got to the point with direct life advice. It's a little abstract, not a "how-to" type of book offering quick fix advice.

I am now re-reading this book after several years and find that I discover new insights. A beautiful book to be read slowly and thoughtfully.

A good book for people interested in meditation, Buddhism, or finding new means for accepting change and growing because of life's challenges.

Easy-to-access Buddhist advice. I'm not a particularly spiritual person one way or the other, but this book was comfort food for my soul.
