"Emotional support of the finest kind: funny, uplifting, reassuring, real and wise. A truly 'mothering' book for mothers ... and their children will benefit hugely." (Stephanie Dowrick)
"This is an excellent, practical guide to everyday Buddhism not just for mothers, but for everyone who has ever had a mother." (Vicki Mackenzie)
"This empathetic book is written by a practicing Buddhist mother for other mothers who face daily assaults on their desire to be calm and centered. Napthali explains early on that she’s a mother, not a spiritual leader, and that she lives her Buddhism each day, and it is this practical, caring persona that narrator Rebecca Macauley brings to life. With her youthful-sounding Australian voice, Macauley enlivens the many anecdotes Napthali includes—stories of mothers trying to be mindful of their parenting mission in a world that offers constant distractions and frustrations, and tales that show how mothers who strive to be extraordinarily nurturing often fail to care for themselves. Macauley’s contemplative voice nicely expresses Napthali’s many soothing insights into the gifts that Buddhism offers mothers." (AudioFile Magazine)
