Overview

This deeply engaging book will help you discover the unique shape of your life by asking yourself questions. Then, with the help of the Comfort Queen, you will discover how to reorient your life around your own desires and needs rather than around time-management tricks. A Comfort Queen rules her own life. She treats herself with the same kindness and respect as she does the people she loves. She has a healthy sense of humor about herself. Rest, self-nurturing, and harmony are her imperial rights. She keeps her eye on the unfolding path of her life and lives by what she treasures. Or at least she tries.

A Comfort Queen also knows that "balance" is not a realistic goal for realistic women. Having the perfect home, the perfect relationship, and enough quality time with your children and friends is a magazine article, not a life. Jennifer Louden and her Comfort Queen know that real life isn't about balance; it's about meaning!

Jennifer Louden, the best-selling author of The Woman's Comfort Book and The Woman's Retreat Book — pioneering books on self-nurturing for women — shows you realistic and fun ways to go inside yourself and create the rich, fulfilling, and sometimes slightly askew life that fits you.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As the baby boomers age, a subgenre of self-help books has emerged that concerns the psychology of change and is written by and for women, e.g., Joan Lunden's Healthy Living (LJ 4/15/97) and Gail Harris's Body & Soul (Kensington, 1999). These two titles fall into this subgenre. Louden (The Woman's Comfort Book, HarperSanFrancisco, 1992) has written a spiritual day planner in a workbook style, which is more whimsical than others but no less meaningful. The Comfort Queen, a spiritual muse/mentor who visits in dreams, raises tough questions that women must answer on their own through intense self-examination. Louden speaks of breaking through limits to gain a new freedom of thought, asking readers to ask themselves, "How am I spending my time in a way that doesn't support me?" Ultimately, she relies on a balancing act between taking care of the self and taking care of others. Snyderman, an ear, nose, and throat surgeon and medical reporter for Good Morning America and 20/20, has written a very intimate portrait of her life thus far. Now happily married, she credits her parents, children, and women friends with helping her survive a rape in college, two failed marriages, and debt. In particular, she credits two friends for pointing out her destructive habits and suggesting therapy as well as a spiritual quest. Both books use women's stories to illustrate the need for balance between nurturing others and taking care of oneself. Women, Louden and Snyderman contend, can only be truly happy and live up to their potential by starting within, not living a life imposed by others. There may be more requests for Snyderman's book because of her television presence, but both of these titles would makefine additions to self-help collections in public libraries.--Lisa Wise, Broome Cty.

    a guardian angel for the new millenium!

    The 'Comfort Queens Guide to Life' is a truly original work. It is honest and humorous, yet it gets at the root of what woman want for themselves and their poor, tired spirits without the preachy feeling of some recent women's self-help books. It is uplifting, positive and COMFORTING! I makes you think about your life and what's RIGHT about it. It also challenges you to go inside yourself and see that the answers have always been there, waiting for you to ask the right questions. And when you meet the 'Comfort Queen', you will never forget her!
