    "That Which Does Not Kill You Will Make You Strong"
    If you could sum up The Dark Side of the Light Chasers in three words, what would they be?

    Challenges are Valuable


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dark Side of the Light Chasers?

    The example of the discovery of the golden Buddah that had been covered with clay.


    What about Debbie Ford’s performance did you like?

    By performing this herself, she was able to add a personal dimension that helped me better understand not just the concepts that she was trying to explain, but also the emotional context that accompanies them.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    If we do not stop complaining and take the time to search for and find the gift that is hidden in every trial in life, we will get double smacked by the experience, because we will suffer needlessly and also won't receive the valuable lessons that are there for our growth and enjoyment.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of those love it or hate it kind of books. It invites you to stretch yourself, and to see life from a very different perspective. If you choose not to absorb and embrace its concepts, you will be choosing the short end of the stick. GREAT BOOK!

    "Beautiful Book"

    I would recommend this book to all who are seeking a deeper experience of self love in their lives. It is a powerful perspective from which to view and own every part of ones self. I found it to be enlightening, uplifting, and a very useful tool in meeting the parts of myself that I previously did not like with love and compassion.

    "Worth the Listen"
    What does Debbie Ford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You can feel Debbie's authenticity as she tells her story. I could tell how important she feels her message is and how much she wants to help others with it.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    I now have such a great understanding of why certain characteristics in other people bothered me so much. It never occurred to me that they were the qualities in myself I did not like or want to deal with. The level of acceptance of myself first then of others has changed dramatically which in turn has changed my life.


    Any additional comments?

    Perfect book for people who are in a place to handle true self-reflection and really want a major change in themselves.
