Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The inevitable has occurred: we are "dummies" again. Like most of the books in the "Dummies" series, this second edition is attractively laid out, divided into brief chapters, and punctuated with icons ("Tip," "Try This," "Words of Wisdom"), but the sections Janis devotes to dharma and karma should be a clue that, despite the author's intention to reach all faiths, her spirituality of affirmation, balance, and awareness is likely to make more sense to non-Western seekers than to Jews, Muslims, or Christians. Still, this is by no means the only "Dummies" book for the spiritual reader; others include Christianity for Dummies, Catholicism for Dummies, and Islam for Dummies, to name a few. The book includes a CD of inspirational music.

It is a true 'soul friend.'

Music on the enclosed CD is pretty feeble, but the book itself is good.
