I found the message, thought provoking and inspiring. The strength in the knowledge that my happiness comes from loving and caring for my own spirit is empowering. I am taking life- changing lessons from these powerful and well-written words.

This book takes all the sting out of forgiviness, love, life. The tools presented support positive and quick changes in life. Instead of feeling victimized by forgiving someone, this book provides a plateform for forgiveness which is epic of love. If patterns are repeating in your life, or you can't let go of an event or experience, this book could hold the key.

Personally, I found the book to be fascinating, informative, intriguing, and motivating. So much rang in my heart as true that I pondered the lessons of the book for the past couple of weeks. During the past few days, it seemed that some piece of the book would pop up in my mind and I'd have to stop and absorb it before moving on to other tasks. I have hopes that Dr. Brown will produce an audio version. His work is unique and truly powerful. This is the typical spiritual awakening garb. There is something deeper, much deeper in this book. I highly recommend it, particularly if you are looking for an enriching story that will take you to a new understanding of living life to its fullest. Dr. Brown has a clear understanding of the human life and spirit. I thank you Dr. Brown for writing such a powerful book. Thanx JamiB

Recently, my book club completed a wonderfully inspiring and rich read called "WAITING TO LIVE" by DR. ASA DON BROWN. I highly recommend this book to my friends, family, and colleagues. It's a book that will inspire those caught in a flow of negative thoughts, with a practical peace plan to bring back the pleasure of life and living life to its utmost fullest. It is written with a compassionate, engaging style, with dashes of humor. I especially appreciated Dr. Brown's profound honesty dealing with life's struggles. Despite years of mindful meditation experience, Dr. Brown reinforces the need for mindfulness and meditation. It was refreshing to get a glimpse of how powerful thoughts can be. This book offers no quick fix, but it reminds us to be the masters of our minds, bodies, and spirits.
