2.0 out of 5 stars A poetic emetic
I should have been put off by the title and my comments are based on a reading of only about 40 or 50 of the poems. Reading other reviews, I see that poems have provided support and succour to those in times of difficulty, so in a way I feel bad about criticising the anthology, but for me too many of the poems are over-sentimental and cloying. You win some, you lose some...

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspired and inspiring poetry anthology., 9 Aug. 2012
Poems That Will Save Your Life There are some treasures in this collection, which I find myself turning to whenever a low mood strikes. It's easy to find a quick morale boost by flicking through the sections (inspiration, encouragement, strength etc.). For instance, the poem I dipped into this morning contained the lines:

In giving the world your very best
Its best will return to you. Y.U.

Bought to help someone suffering from cancer. It was appreciated. It contained helpful poetry, artisan in style, probably not suitable for a dedicated poetry enthusiast.

A wonderful collection of a fantastic variety of poems. A true gem of a book to keep and refer to anytime. A great companion of a book.

I am not a poetry buff, and find it hard to understand and enjoy poetry. However, i was interested in what this book might offer, so I wernt ahead and purchased. It has such lovely inspirational verse, which i find uplifting, and I find them easy to understand. this is a lovely 'comforting' book that i often turn to when I feel down, or if I want something reflect on.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear..., 30 May 2014

A good idea, nicely presented, obviously aimed at those who wouldn't normally turn to poetry. But oh dear! The last two verses of Edmund Waller's lovely poem on old age, "Of the Last Verses in the Book", are misattributed to Ernest Dowson, under the title "Old Age". Unforgivable -- I read no further.

This is a selection that you can dip into. Some writers I had never read before. A few clangers though!
