  • Same exact “essays”

    By Sofiacssn
    Complete lack of variety of essays. Same exact concept in each one basically. Like how can you write so many of the same things and just label them differently? What a complete waste of $10 and my lunch break.
  • Excellent

  • If I spent the time to write this review…

    By evachan60
    Try the sample. When life is messy, it helps me to return to really basic concepts. She just lays out information based on simple scientific truths, and it makes everything make sense. I skimmed the index at first and read two amazing essays and was hooked. Read it in ANY order you want! Some essays are so good they only need a single page to change your day. I try to read one per day! If youre reading slowly enough, its not repetitive and its not superficial. You have to really want to understand this book. Im not crazy, but Ive shared particular chapters with more than 10 people and they have purchased the book soon after. They said they saw a change in me and asked why! Reading a chapter here and there has altered their perspectives in every social situation day to day. And mine! I used this book sort of like a daily devotional, not reading it in any order. I sometimes marked chapters that I know will come in handy one day, or mark one that would help a friend going through something. You need to read this slowly and digest each sentence, its not that convoluted- the writing is just succinct. Take your time with it, the language is actually very simple and matter of fact. You can take what you want and leave the rest, its not a bible or rulebook. Just try the sample, please try it.

    Anyone on a creative path; who calls themself an artist; who has eyes for the beauty in the world - this book will jog your inner world in subtle but meaningful ways. Each essay is also easily digestible. Its a quick read that you can revisit in trying times, or when you simply need some insight. For fans of War of Art by Pressfield.
