Overview

Part of our love affair with coffee seems to be tied up in the ritual and the history of drinking it. From the moment we become self-determining young adults and we begin to develop a sense of who we are and where we fit into our world, we love the intimate luxury of the time we can take with friends over a cup of coffee. In that coffeehouse haven, cradling that bitter, sweetened or flavored cup we discover our lives unfolding. We share an explosion of ideas, beliefs, troubles and triumphs at that café table while hovering over the rising mists of our java’s curling steam. We hold intimate chats with trusted friends and we learn that there are as many ways to live a good life as there are people to live them. This powerful and stimulating book entices readers to discover the best parts of themselves over a steaming cup of their favorite brew. Grab this book, hold onto your seat and enjoy the magnificent adventure.

    It clicks!

    If anyone had described to me the effect this book would have on me before I had actually read it, I would have rolled my eyes. But now, nothing will ever be the same for me. Life is much simpler now because I have a sense of perspective that I didn¿t have before I got this book. I love a good problem to solve, but I also like the important things in life to work well. Whether you want to work on a small problem, learn to set and achieve goals or really re-work your entire philosophy of life, this book gives you a place to start. And the picture you paint is your own. The authors aren¿t trying to tell you the ¿one way ¿ to live your life. In fact they say in the Prologue that there are ¿as many ways to live a good life as there are people to live them.¿ It helps you stop obsessing over pointless stuff and focus on the real issues. It¿s so logical! And it¿s loads of fun to discuss with other people in your life. I keep this one on my desk at work and some of my friends pick it up whenever they walk by and find another question to mull over. You have to get this book.

    GET IT

    I could not put this book down. It's all about living in the moment without judgement. I encourage anyone who is even the tiniest bit interested in developing self-awareness to read this book. Do yourself a favor.

    A Great Read

    Wow! What a great read! This book is practical, down to earth and useful without any fairyland explanations. It's all about being in the moment and owning your own life. You know how you can read a book and you just feel the ring of truth in it? Well let this book work its magic on you. It will grab you by the heart and drag you from cover to cover. This book is inspiring. I bought copies for other people to see wondrous results. We have a great time posing the questions to each other. We can talk for hours about stuff that we've never really looked at closely. I'm starting to see how I've let others "should" me all my life. No more! It's my life now! I love this book! It made me want to shout and just get up and be happy that I get to live this wonderful life!
