I think everyone can relate to these positive thoughts." - Library of Clean Reads

"Reading Dodinsky's book "In the Garden of Thoughts" is like reading pure sunshine in book form. He has a way of translating life experiences into words that is entirely unique and inspired and authentic. " - The Single Woman

"This is a book that makes one reflect, and the messages will help the person who has suffered judgement, has been put down, has been or going through great obstacles in life, has fears holding them back, is down in life and so forth. I think everyone can relate to these positive thoughts. This collection of positive messages would make a great gift for anyone who may be going through a rough spell, even young ones and especially teens. Or perhaps for that friend who has been there for you, that co-worker who is helpful to everyone, or that person who always knows what to say to cheer you up. The book is attractive and could be left on a coffee table where it is sure to be picked up, leaving the reader with thoughts on which to ponder and meditate. " - Laura Fabiani, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

"It's not often I find a book that I enjoy as much as my teenager, and would consider as the "go-to" gift for all of my friends, but "In the Garden of Thoughts" by inspirational author Dodinsky is exactly that book." - Stress-Free, Baby

"This gift book would be excellent for students who are graduating this spring. Or someone who just needs a pick me up. I know I am keeping it handy as I try to get through these final weeks of the semester. " - Viva La Feminista

"Overall, if you are a fan of gift books for your self or you're thinking of giving one to your girl friends (it can be given in almost all special occasions), look no further than ItGoT—it is full of positivity, lovely illustrations and nicely bound with a [heavier] glossy paper." - Michelle & Leslie's Book Picks

"Having Dodinsky's "In the Garden of Thoughts" on your bookshelf is like having a personal roadmap to help you find your way back 'home'. Dodinsky's soul-soothing quotes have a way of penetrating through all the layers of ego and landing right in the middle of that vaguely familiar but not-often—visited place of complete emptiness — the place where meaningful thinking and deep contemplating occurs. It is here that our mask is gently removed, the ego dissolves, and we are left with the magnificent being that we are.

" - Fight LIke a Girl Club

I received this book as a gift at Christmas time.  I have slowly worked my way through each saying, on days when I am reflecting on events, thinking of motivational quotations, etc., and finally finished this book.  I enjoyed the appearance of the book, the illustrations and the sayings.  At first glance I would say oh this is a children's book, but as I read it, I realized this was a book with lessons for all ages.  Depending on the day, the mood, the events taking place one could and I believe would take different meanings from the expressions displayed on each page.   I also thought it was the perfect length and I enjoyed that the sayings did not all relate to the same idea or issue.  This way it was ideal for flipping through the book and browsing the thoughts/sayings until one jumped out at me.

One could never be too childish enough to concentrate and analyze the illustrations portrayed in this book. The images inside and on the back and front covers of the book gives the reader a warm, fuzzy feeling of greatness. The title, “In the Garden of Thoughts”, places a tranquil feeling in the reader’s mind; symbolizing that a person’s mind is like a wonderful garden filled with precious plants. Dodinsky is all about showing the message of hope, strength, and happiness through inspiring quotations. Second person point-of-view (POV) is displayed in every quote; reminding the reader that the quotes are for them.  You will find great advertisement of this book on Dodinsky’s local FaceBook page, called Positive Outlooks. We all can find things to negate us and turn us down, but Dodinsky only reminds us (through this book) that all is still well. I recommend this book to toddlers, children, and anyone who needs a fresh intake on life. Sit back, relax, and enrapture yourself in each quote and you’ll find that by the time you reach half-way, your perspective on life shall change. An uplifting book, a best-selling book according to New York Times, and a necessary book for others to read and share!

I met Dodinsky on Myspace quite a few years ago, just as he was starting out, sharing his gift of words. We all watched as he began to accrue a following of Believers...Believers in him and his dream.... and now....that dream has culminated into "The Garden Of Thoughts." Dodi touches each of us with his Words, which come from his Soul. May we all enjoy a little stroll through "The Garden Of Thoughts."

I woke up this morning to a box sitting on my table. I immediately knew what it was. Before I even made my coffee I ripped the box open and started reading. It is even more beautiful then I ever imagined! Congratulations and thank you for all your beautiful words and for never giving up on your dreams!! ((Hugs))

I received this book early by paying a little more without realizing it. The words are beautiful and the illustrations are magical. They compliment each other very nicely. The words are as vibrant as the colors on the pages. Dodinsky really puts deep thoughts into prospective and he challenges you to think about your inner self. Thank you for such a great book. - cpf
