Publisher's Summary

Is it possible to be grounded AND have a rich interior life? Is it possible to get through the day with poise when everything hits the fan? Is it possible to have a spiritual life and not be a wing-nut? For Jen Weigel, the answer to all three questions is a resounding YES.

This is an honest, amusing teaching memoir rooted in Weigel's everyday experience as a mother, television personality, and performance artist. Weigel provides 13 common-sense rules for developing a sane and satisfying interior life - ranging from "trust that you are where you are supposed to be in every moment" to "always look for signs", to "don't get lost in a guru." What makes this book so fun and refreshing is Weigel's voice - and the fact that, in the words of one of her friends, she is a "magnet for really bizarre shit".

Whether she is playing chicken with deranged Chicago drivers with "Jesus Saves" bumper stickers, trying to keep those extra pounds off, interviewing celebrities on television, or encountering the spirit of her dead father (who keeps appearing in the guise of a cardinal - a bird, not a prelate), Weigel maintains a zest for learning, living, and loving. Her high-spirited stories illustrate core life principles and convey an immediacy and energy that listeners will find delightful.

Probably better to read

I selected this for a road trip because I wanted to add variety to my playlist and needed something that didn't require too much thinking. Well, I should have better defined "thinking" and listened to a sample beforehand. After 15 minutes of listening to this I felt like I was listening to a children's book . The reader sounded like a pre-school teacher which is fine in of itself but for this story, seemed awkward and quickly became obnoxious. If I had read it instead of listened to it, I would have place more mature tone to the narration (in my head) and in turn, probably would have found a greater appreciation to this book.

Painful Narration

After the first thirty minutes, I just couldn't take the narrator any more. The narrator sounds like she is reading to her kindergarten audience. I have enjoyed Jennifer Weigel's work, so I am going to give this book another try before considering returning it.
