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.
