"A witty meditation on the ways in which grammar can improve morale, bolster confidence, and provide an invigorating spiritual workout" --O, The Oprah Magazine
"In Grammar for the Soul, Weinstein coaches us not only on how to write, but on how to live. With wit, mischief, and wisdom, he shows us the inner workings of the English language so we can unlock our best selves. Strunk and White, move over!
" --Rabbi Lawrence Kushner, scholar, Congregation Emanu-El of San Francisco; author of Kabbalah: A Love Story
"Grammar for the Soul is an entirely fresh, amusing, and authentic approach to spirituality. Expressing ourselves through language creates the way that we sculpt reality...and allow ourselves to be sculpted by it. If you read just one book this year, let this be the one. I loved it!" --Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of Your Soul's Compass and Minding the Body, Mending the Mind
"This book is a true gem -- finely honed, deeply reflective, and lit from within. It brought the wonder of language back to me, but that was only the beginning. Weinstein's mini-essays are sensual, provocative, filled with stunning new insights about turning written expression into a transformational quest. He demonstrates how any humble paragraph, when blessed with exquisite attention, can become a perfect prayer."
--Raphael Cushnir, author of Unconditional Bliss, How Now, and The One Thing Holding You Back
"Lawrence Weinstein confirms what we literary types have always known in our hearts: grammar equals virtue.
" --Anne Fadiman, author of Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader and The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down
