Publisher Comments:

From the bestselling author of Help, Thanks, Wow comes an honest, funny book about how to make sense of lifes chaos.

What do we do when life lurches out of balance? How can we reconnect to one other and to whats truly important when evil and catastrophe seem inescapable?

These questions lie at the heart of Stitches, Anne Lamotts captivating follow-up to her New York Times–bestselling Help, Thanks, Wow. In this book, Lamott explores how and where we find meaning in our modern, frantic age, especially after personal and public devastation; how we recapture peace and balance after loss; and how we locate our spiritual identities in these frazzled times. We begin, Lamott says, by collecting the ripped shreds of our emotional and spiritual fabric and sewing them back together, one stitch at a time. Its in these stitches that the quilt of life begins, and embedded in them are strength, warmth and humanity.

Synopsis:

Praised by everyone from Bernie Siegel to Daniel Goleman to Larry Dossey, Rachel Remen has a unique perspective on healing rooted in her background as a physician, a professor of medicine, a therapist, and a long-term survivor of chronic illness. In a deeply moving and down-to-earth collection of true stories, this prominent physician shows us life in all its power and mystery and reminds us that the things we cannot measure may be the things that ultimately sustain and enrich our lives.

I have owned this book for almost 15 years, pick it up off the shelf probably at least 6-8 times a year, open to any page to start (re-)reading, and without fail, it soothes, comforts, re-energizes, and just plain helps me through life. Always, always, always, without fail, no lie.

This book is that most remarkable of all reads-a collection of life lessons which are as deep and wise as they are brief. Each of Rachel Remen's chapters about a patient's experience is just 2 to 3 pages long; which makes her brilliant reflections on life SO accessible--both for the average reader as well as for the reader facing a similar life-threatening illness. I'm currently reading this book for the second time, and continue to give it frequently as a gift to friends who are facing their own health challenges. I can't recommend this book highly enough!

This book is a must read. Rachel Naomi Remen's book is full of insight and wisdom gathered over a lifetime. As a doctor, she understands the true meaning of healing. Many doctors see their work as science while Remen includes the spiritual and emotional needs of her patients. Even in her clients' and her own illnesses, she finds the wisdom to embrace on each journey. Add it to your life list; you won't be sorry.
