Only that I related very much to the concepts described.
I bought this book as it was one of the buy-2-get-1 free and I really wasn't expecting much from it. It seemed interesting, looked good, but I really wasn't sure if it was going to be one of those new-agey meditative books or something solid I could enjoy without having to have all my karma in row.
It turned out to be a wonderful surprise as Amy is a wonderful writer and reader of her own work. It offered some great reminders with good stories and facts to go with them. I never felt lectured to or that she was someone who was just oblivious to life's sadder side, but her spin on how to take a bad event or moment and put a good spin on it was very wise and helpful.
This is one book I'm keeping on my iPhone to listen to again and again. Especially when I'm not appreciating my life or all I have, this book will remind me again and again, how to lean towards optimism.
