Book 2 in the ButterflyFree project compiled Terry Talentino is “GoodFriday: Chaos Conflict is a Gift” is a continuation of Jim Talentino’s words and wisdom. Taken from the papers left behind by his father, Terry Talentino presents this unique and often awe inspiring work as a project to be savored and digested slowly – as most life changing information really is.
This book talks to the pain in us, the disappointments, the loss – and it turns the idea that it is all bad on its head. We’ve all heard phrases like, ‘every rain cloud has a silver lining’ or ‘when a door closes, a window opens’ – but how many of us really truly believe that? This book will help you find that belief, that faith and acceptance that is often lacking in our day to day – and embrace it.
A unique style, this collection of short stories, inspiring speech and contemplative prose, this asks as many questions as it answers. ‘Wannabe wannabe wannabe be free? ( )

I’m always weary of the credentials of people who write self-help books. What gives them so much authority and knowledge of the world? How do they have it all figured out? I’ve just read GoodFriday, and I think Jim Talentino has had a unique blend of life experiences that make him well-suited to to author a book like this. Only through these experiences was he able to discover how to evaluate his world, and now he shares this wisdom with us.

In a lot of ways, the stories seem to be filled with questions instead of offering answers (‘Is Life Fair?’ is a great example of this). But I think that’s the best way to help people discover things on their own—ask them the right questions to get them thinking about the topic in a new critical way. That’s exactly what Talentino does with this book, and it works well. ( )

Best guide to dealing with adversity - I can't imagine any adult who hasn't had some adversity in their life - real or imagined. I have probably had more than my share of both varieties and have learned some hard lessons about life over the years, many that author Jim Talentino echoes so well in his "GoodFriday: Chaos Conflict is a Gift". One of the key points, evident from the title, is that from adversity we are actually pushed to grow in ways that we otherwise would not. Talentino illustrates through stories and his personal experiences how chaos and adversity actually pushed him closer to Love - and this is where the answer lies. I so enjoy Talentino's unique writing style, as it is unlike anything that I have run across in a personal transformation read and I am finding his books to be both uplifting and very thought-provoking.
