      "generally disappointed"

      I found this to be humorless and rather draining. I did appreciate some of her insights and think this would be a good book in times of crisis to ground oneself, much like Pema Chodron's "When Things Fall Apart." I enjoy Eckhart Tolle's audiobooks more, as he seems to be speaking from the heart and there is more joy and freedom in his message. If you like lists and rules, you might enjoy this more than I did!
