Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life by Karen Armstrong, 8 Feb 2011
This lady is one very well read and thoughtful writer. I am quite ancient, and reasonably well acquainted with the English language but I still needed a dictionary now and then!! Although I must confess this book is not as bad as her book about the Bible - she delights in using a hard word, when a soft one would do as well!
That said, this is one very readable book full of human down to earth problems that afflict us all, largely in our relationships with others. Analyses of these problems,discussion of solutions, and suggestions for improvement.
I thoroughly recommend it as an easy, thoughtful read, the sort where you read a page and then put the book down and spend the following half hour dreamily applying it to ones own life.
It makes one think anew.
