A slender volume, easy to read, that might just change your life. The book has Christian religious references, but the basic information is excellent for every person. The book is structured so that there is one chapter to read each day for 30 days. It's a good book to keep and re-read often. After the first read, maybe choosing a chapter a day is good, as chapters are short. Offers some practical advice for some situations. There's no one this book doesn't pertain to. ( )

I read this a while ago as part of a group study on the book of James (in the Bible.) I don't usually endorse the "method approach" to sanctification/dealing with sin nor do I believe that one of the most difficult sins to master can be achieved in 30 days! However, I felt that this book could be very useful if used in the right way. It lists the various sins we commit day in and day out through our speech and suggests ways to mortify them (with prayer.) If nothing else it helps us as Christians to be aware of our speech and the necessity to ensure that we don't use words carelessly. Our group decided to make a conscious effort to monitor our own speech and motivations behind it for just one day initially. When we regrouped we were appalled at our own sinfulness in the space of just one day!

I recommend this book for Christians...not as a "self help" tool when building relationships which is how the description for the book reads, but as a practical tool for conviction of sin and training in righteousness.... ( )
