Having read all of Gina's books, it's easier to see the added wisdom that this one provides. There are many more practical examples here of just how life supports us in each moment and real-life examples of what it means to 'follow your heart' even in the face of doubt and fear.
There is a very useful exercise on working with the Inner Child. This is a simple but effective process of giving ourselves the love that we may not have gotten growing up. This is a practice I'm actively engaged in, and having it explained so clearly has helped me in my own healing. Knowing just how universal our childhood wounding can be, has helped me drop the story around being 'singled out' for suffering.
The importance of meditation and some very easy meditation practices are provided. These have worked tremendously well for me in my own life, and my practice is now up to 2 hours daily, because I enjoy it.
The reasons Gina provides for trusting life are both rational (e.g. life is consistent in certain ways) and esoteric (e.g. reincarnation) and compelling enough to short-circuit the ego's doubts (if only for a bit!). But of course, some people will only believe what they see and others see what they believe. Those who feel the truth in their own heart deeply, don't need any convincing.
A real gem, and one that I've already recommended to several friends.
