    A few years ago, small-time finance journalist Matthew Prior quit his day job to gamble everything on a quixotic notion: a Web site devoted to financial journalism in the form of blank verse. When his big idea - and his wife's eBay resale business - ends with a whimper (and a garage full of unwanted figurines), they borrow and borrow, whistling past the graveyard of their uncertain dreams.

    "Buy this book"
    Overall

    This book kept me up till 4am. I found the first person narrative honest and authentic. Matt Prior is a sympathetic main character struggling to make sense of the financial crash of 09 and his failing marriage. Very engaging, topical and funny in many places. Loved it.

    How can we go on living "when things fall apart", when we are overcome by pain, fear, and anxiety? Pema Chodron's answer to that question contains some spectacularly good news: there is a fundamental happiness readily available to each one of us, no matter how difficult things seem to be.

    "Changed my life"
    Overall

    I bought this audio book for the title during a life crisis. It changed my life. Pema Chodron offers a new way of viewing hardship that is both comforting and motivating. The production value is great. Pema has a great voice.
