This is a beautiful book written by a wonderful woman. It is very helpful if you are trying to find your purpose in life. If you aren't, then it might not make sense to you. Martha's writing is insightful, funny, and will help you make the transition to your true life.
Author reading own writing
Reads like she's speaking to you.
Understanding that bad experiences are the pivotal point that create good things happening in your life.
Enjoyed the experience.
Exact to the point.
I am a big fan of Martha Beck. This book is a more evolved work from the original Find your Northstar. She is very pragmatical on her approach to real life struggle, she is very well articulated and researched and always uplifting without promising fairy tales. I am a life coach myself and always feel very inspired by her work.

Second to Iyanla Vanzant's Peace from Broken Pieces.
I LOVE Martha Beck, she is witty and funny! I DISLIKED THE BORING NARRATOR who spoke the headlines of each section of the book. I would scream out
I enjoy Martha's take on life, and the way she presents the material. She makes it understandable and interesting to listen to, which relatable examples for everything she talks about. I've been reading her articles on Oprah's site for a while now and am so happy to have listened to this book.
I would recommend it to anyone who wants to live their best life!
Very practical advice for a mystical application of self actualization. I will use this personally and professionally. I practice Shamanism and this compliments my practice. Highly recommended
Martha Beck has written smart insightful articles for "O" magazine but this book was a complete disapointment. Content is boring starting with Beck's own personal "journey" to the pap regurgitated that has been around for years and now sounds old and just plain dumb. I am sorry I wasted both my money and my time on this one.
There might be some great principles and pointers in this book, but the author's ego gets in the way: how many stories about herself do we really need to hear? Good golly.
Way too distracting. Plus, she never seems to circle back to nail down the point she is trying to make...
