Allen Klein has done it again! I have to say that out of all of his books, this one is my favorite. The quotes are perfect and organized
in such a way that you can pick the type of wisdom you’re in the mood to hear. Some examples are age & aging, Anger & Adversity,
Change & Challenge…etc. I found the categories to be refreshing and calming. Let me explain that, the quotes are divided into a group
that is among one general theme. I love the quote “I can’t cook. I use a smoke alarm as a timer.” by Carol Siskind. I thought I loved
because it was funny which is true, but Allen Klein further extenuates meaning from these words by putting it into the ‘Housekeeping’
category. At first I thought…okay shouldn't it be under the humor section. That’s was makes sense. The quote is funny. However, Allen
Klein understand a lot about the human condition. Sure this quotes is funny, but I laugh extra hard on the days I’m supposed to
cook dinner. This is something I haven’t seen in any other book of quotes. Bravo Allen Klein! If you buy this book you will look at it
all the time and refer to it when you need a pick-me-up.

Allen Klein has pulled together an eclectic collection of thoughts and words to live by. From the pithy to the profound, the contemporary to the classic, there is something for everyone in this little book full of big ideas. Several quotes will no doubt find their way onto my wall as daily inspiration. This is the kind of book you read and reread, to see what jumps out at you at different times. It was a great reminder to me of the power of words. Just a few simple words strung together in two or three sentences can have the power to bring about change, reflection and personal growth. This is a great book to keep on the nightstand for a late night consultation or to jump start your morning. Highly recommended!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
