Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Not a day goes by without our being called upon to help one another--at home, at work, on the street, on the phone. . . . We do what we can. Yet so much comes up to complicate this natural response: "Will I have what it takes?" "How much is enough?" "How can I deal with suffering?" "And what really helps, anyway?"

In this practical helper's companion, the authors explore a path through these confusions, and provide support and inspiration fo us in our efforts as members of the helping professions, as volunteers, as community activists, or simply as friends and family trying to meet each other's needs. Here too are deeply moving personal accounts: A housewife brings zoo animals to lift the spirits of nursing home residents; a nun tends the wounded on the first night of the Nicaraguan revolution; a police officer talks a desperate father out of leaping from a roof with his child; a nurse allows an infant to spend its last moments of life in her arms rather than on a hospital machine. From many such stories and the authors' reflections, we can find strength, clarity, and wisdom for those times when we are called on to care for one another. How Can I Help? reminds us just how much we have to give and how doing so can lead to some of the most joyous moments of our lives.

I read this book many years ago when I was a crisis intervention counselor and was feeling very overwhelmed by the seemingly endless persons whose lives were in crisis! I believe that I have read everything Ram Dass has written and everything is so right on, so inspirational. This is a must read for everyone but particularly for those in the helping profession. We all want to help, its our nature ... but how? What is truly helpful and what isn't ... such a personal question ... personal to each individual and to each situation.

Please take the time to read this ... it will enrich your life in ways you cannot imagine!

I have read it several times since and I have given countless copies to friends and clients. And I am about to read it again! Thank you for this opportunity. And thank you, Ram Dass for Being!
