Nick Chapman, April 28, 2008 (view all comments by Nick Chapman)
Buddhists of all stripes, non-Buddhists, anyone with a thoughtful mind and an openness to spirituality will find things to intrigue, enlighten, guide and help them in Pema Chodron's writings. This is perhaps my favorite book and the one I give the most, as it so often is the case that it is in "difficult times" that people start looking for answers, or new ways. Like all of Pema Chodron's works, this book does not offer answers, or at least not any easy or obvious ones, but it does offer new ways, ways forward even in the darkest of times.

Very accessible - no prior background in Buddhism, or indeed in any spiritual practice, is necessary to approach and enter into this book, and she has a wonderful, engaging voice.
