I listened to the CD read by the author. It's hard to describe this book. I would start to tune out and then there would be a zinger that I thought was really neat, but the pace was a little rushed and it didn't give the listener time to absorb the more profound observations. I think I might have liked it better in written form. ( )

A bit eccentric, but the stories make you smile and the title definitely sticks with you. ( )

This is a lovely lovely little treasure. I love the way she writes, so expressively, succinctly, and personably, and how she helps us feel all the reasons to be open to life and the spiritual in life. ( )

Asking for assistance from a higher power, appreciating what we have that is good, and feeling awe at the world around us-- that can get us through the day and can show us the way forward.
