This is an absolutely excellent selection of poems and is up there (for me) with such anthologies as Other Men's Flowers, David Owen's Seven Ages and Roger McGough's edit of Poetry Please. In other words, some old favourites are here but some new stuff too, and all drawn together around the theme of inspiration and achievement.

A brilliant book of poetry.I gave it to a good friend who has been having terrible health problems and she loves it and it has inspired her to fight even harder for this fragile life that we live.

Lovely book as a gift though I thought I would got a new book but there were some mark on the edge and the back cover. However, it does not matter much since it a good read.

Some beautiful work in this compilation...inspiring, humbling, thought-provoking. Some well-known, some less well-known. A selection to dip into when the need arises.

I heard some of the poems featured in this collection on Radio 4 as part 'Poetry Pharmacy'. I thought that this book would be an ideal present for a friend who needed a bit of a life 'boost'. I think everyone would enjoy the mix of poems chosen.
