    Wonderful philosophy amd it works. The most difficult person to forgive is oneself.

    A really great discussion on forgiveness without once using that forbidden word. So many of us are left cold by religionists and that's a shame for the concept of forgivenes--expecially self forgiveness is very valid and useful in whatever terms we choose to use. We wouldn't bash our best friends the way we bash ourselves. So just lay it down! Give it a rest and move on. You'll be surprised at how much better you'll feel about yourself and the world in general.

    A MUST READ

    This book is readable in one hour and teaches more than a shrink or anyone can convey in a lifetime. It is easy to read and never is confusing

    Still Worth Reading

    I first read this book in 1973 and several times since, but not rerrcently. It left a very deep and lasting impression. Before suggesting it to my grandchildren, another read seemed advisable. It is just as easy and quick to read now, and is just as applicable to daily life at age 70 as it was then. If you are a reader of self help books, this is a must. If not, give this book a try. It might just change your life.
