As of April 2012 I can't understand why this book has only one review of any consequence. I can't remember exactly when I bought this book but it surely must be over 12 years ago. I bought it at a time when I was experiencing a significant amount of personal distress, as we all do from time to time, and it became my own personal soothing balm to aid my recovery. I imagine the words within are for those who walk the fierce edges of life and who fall and stumble from time to time. I think that's all of us ... isn't it?
This book is 365 days of straight talk and inspiration that will speak to your heart, challenge you and transform your thinking if you let it. It is one of the best books I happened to pick up in a closing down bookstore sale in Houston and is the best half price book I've ever bought. I'd have gladly paid full price though. If you seek healing, if you seek enlightenment, if you seek inspiration and guidance, then add this to your book collection.
I really like the Book. In fact I have read the daily readings each day since receiving it.Mark Nepo combines a simple and powerful approach to life, and what is important in life, with the experience of surviving cancer, which informs his work. - A shortcut to the nub of what really matters in life. Read it!
