I Love/d This Book,
This review is from: Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is one of those books you keep by the bed, and this is beside mine.
I like the way Richard writes, I like the points he makes...the first bit about the hero's quest was a little more aimed at men than for women but it didn't put me off returning to the book to understand a little about 'growing up'.
Richard has a lovely writing style and rarely criticises...more encourages different thought. It helps I suppose that he lives in the life he is talking about...which is rich with religion and myth.
It is similar in approach to Marie de Hennezel's The Warmth of the Heart Prevents Your Body from Rusting: Ageing without growing old which, is that they both make the point that growing 'old' isn't such a dreadful thing.
There were parts of the book where I felt totally immersed...and when I'm feeling a bit off centre, Richard's sensible words bring me back round.
An enjoyable read.
