Overview

Sometimes things happen we wish hadn't. Sometimes things don't happen we wish would. In the course of living, problems arise, both big and small. We might wish our past had been different or that we could be different. We struggle through disappointments and frustrations, losses and other painful experiences. As hard as we may try to be strong, to have a good attitude, and not to let things get us down, we don't always succeed. We get upset. We worry. We feel stressed. We get depressed. We get angry. We do the best we can and wait for things to get better so we can feel better. In the meantime, our hearts may grow heavy ... perhaps very heavy.

That's what happened to Duke the Dragon Slayer. In fact, his heart grew so heavy with all that was wrong, with all that was not the way it should be, with all that was unfair, that he became desperate to lighten it -- and set forth on the Path of Serenity to find out how. Accompany Duke on this life-changing adventure. His guides will be your guides. His answers will be your answers. His tools will be your tools. His success will be your success. And by the time he is heading home, both Duke and you will know how to take life's inevitable lumps and bumps in stride -- and find happiness and serenity anytime ... even when you really, Really wish some things were different.

    Therapy without a 'Self Help' feel

    This was a great book that really helped me put challenges in life in perspective. This book offers unique ways of addressing life's difficulties but not with a 'self-help' feel to it. The fairy tale makes for an easy, fun, and interesting read.
