About the author: quoting from the book's dust jacket, "Anne Lamott is the 'New York Times --bestselling author of 'Some Assembly Required' [and many other popular titles]. [She is] a past recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and an inductee to the California Hall of Fame. . ."

I don't always agree with Lamott's views but I do enjoy her self-deprecating humor and I appreciate her honesty and humility as she writes about her personal journey of faith. The style in this book is a little rambling but there are nuggets of wisdom. At around 100 pages, it would make a nice little gift book for someone experiencing personal struggles.

However, If you've never read Lamott, I suggest starting with Traveling Mercies. ( )

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. ( )

"I do not know much about God and prayer, but I have come to believe, over the last twenty-five years, that there's something to be said about keeping prayer simple" -- Cover verso.Lamott has coalesced everything she knows about prayer to three simple fundamentals. 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. Lamott recounts how she came to these insights, explains what they mean to her and how they have helped, and explores how others have embraced these same ideas.… (more)
