Possibly the best life change book I've ever read

I picked up Finding Your Own North Star while doing research for a self-help book I am co-authoring, thinking I would look at it, figure out what was worng with it, and put it down. Instead I was blown away. This was by far the best book on life change I have ever seen,...
I picked up Finding Your Own North Star while doing research for a self-help book I am co-authoring, thinking I would look at it, figure out what was worng with it, and put it down. Instead I was blown away. This was by far the best book on life change I have ever seen, with the possible exception of Barbara Sher's classic, Wishcraft. Martha Beck shows you how to follow your own body and inner awareness to create the life God meant you to live -- a life of joy, in harmony with who you really are. Not pie in the sky in the least, this book lays down the practical steps you need to take to listen to your inner self and turn your desires into reality. If you're the kind of person who believes that life is a vale of suffering stacked against you, that only the incredibly lucky, talented and smart will do anything remotely like what they want to do, and the rest of us have to resign ourselves to our compromised fate with the help of religion, television and ironic wisecracks, then this is definitely not the book for you. But if you secretly believe that you deserve to be happy and do what you love to do, and have been waiting for someone to come along and give you permission and some instruction on how to make it happen, then look no farther -- click this book into your shopping cart. On the jacket sleeve, Martha Beck looks like Mary Martin playing Peter Pan. And she really is like Peter Pan, sprinkling fairy dust on people and telling them they can fly. And she'd never, never tell you to grow up and wear a tie and a serious expression, unless ties and serious expressions really, really turned you on. I heartily recommend this book to any genuine life seeker of any age.
