    This book changed my life!

    I've had it for years and have been reading it on and off until recently I must have been ready because I really understood it. It literally changed my life. I got a new job making triple what I was making before, my relationship is wonderful and I feel good about myself. I highly recommend this truly amazing, blessed book.

    Concrete Exercises to Create Joy!

    My book, "Love From Both Sides," tells the story of a man who refused to accept "joy and happiness," because he thought it was "deeper" to focus on pain and worry about suffering. And that's what many people are taught, yes? But if you're reading this review in December of '08, last week the British Journal of Medicine confirms what "Living with Joy" shouts out -- that creating joy in your own life creates a "ripple effect," and makes everyone around you happier and healthier. I'm a working hypnotherapist, and I use all her wonderful books to help my clients connect to their joyous souls. If you invest in this book, you'll reap the rewards! And so will everyone around you!
