If you only read one make-sense-of-life book, make it this.

Dorothy Rowe helps us understand ourselves in a way which avoids jargon, cliche and dogma. No one could fail to be uplifted and inspired by her Guide to Life. Because unlike so many "you can live your dream" handbooks, it doesn't offer shallow diagnosis and quick fixes. Quite the reverse. It's inspiring because what she says about the many ways we disable ourselves rings so deeply true and because, in helping us face that truth, she gives us all hope. The mix of wisdom, compassion and humour make it all the more readable. Simply the best self-help book I have read.
