    I Also Recommend:

    An inspiring start for a new change

    I have to say I did feel good as soon as I opened `Your Daily Walk with the Great Minds' and began reading. The book is broken out by months, and each day is set with a specific quote, a mediation that is in relation to that quote, there is a personal journaling question to help you to define your feelings and thoughts and last, an affirmation. One that I liked is this (especially as I feel we can all do well with more peace in our life.):

    `First keep the peace within yourself, and then you can also bring peace to others' by Thomas Kempis.
    The meditation states that you cannot have peace around you if you do not have it inside you, first.
    For the personal journaling, you are asked "how will you create peace in your inner life today?".
    The affirmation is `Today, I will remember that my external life is created from within'.

    Many of these quotes are similar to the above. However, I was disappointed in a few things. First, as this is a daily guide, I would have preferred the `date' to be eliminated. (For the quote above, that was listed under `May 24'). Many times I personally become confused as I am not sure I am harming `the program' if I am not starting it on the right day. I am asking myself questions and wondering if I am lacking something or wondering if I should back-track the previous dates and `catch up'.

    My second issue was the recommend book list. The recommended book list includes such books as: The Power of Positive Thinking: A practical book teaching you to energize your life and give you the initiative you need to carry out your desires, as well as to be nice to yourself. The Power of Intention: From what information I could gather, this book helps one to have in mind, a purpose or plan that can align with the universe so that it can happen. The majority resonates on this scale and I can agree to why they are recommended. A few books, "Tuesdays with Morrie" and "The Five People You Meet in Heaven", I would not really expect on this list. Yes, they both represent meaning that can relate, but in my own personal opinion, I would find "The Power of Now" and "A New Earth" to be much better suited for the work and changes Mr. Singer is presenting to us and very surprised that neither is listed on his recommended reading list.

    Otherwise, this would be a good start for someone that was once the way I used to be: Negative, depressed, and just normally `down' all the time on everything. As someone that once was that way, I know what a person must invest to make that positive change for a sense of well-being. I have been there and I did it. Granted, I did it before I encountered Richard's pocket book "Your Daily Walk with the Great Minds", but that does not mean I am not still seeking to make sure I am the best mother, wife, therapist and person I can be for those that rely on me.

    The quotes of the masters were invaluable. However, if Mr. Singer's
    comments had been dropped, they would not have been missed. He awards
    one line quotes to each of the masters, but, instead of letting the
    reader sit at the feet of the masters, pondering their snippets of
    wisdom, Mr. Singer follows with a paragraph of his own perspective. He
    is a distraction. It is as though the author does not trust the reader
    to be intelligent enough to glean and appreciate the insights found in
    the writings of truly great minds. In any case, I ignore Mr. Singers
    remarks, and focus on the awesome contributions of truly great thinkers.
    Aside from that, I found the quotes selected by Mr. Singer to be very inspirational.

    Your Daily Walk is Worth More than your average meditation book

    Richard Singer's "Your Daily Walk With the Great Minds" is one of those daily meditation books that raises the bar on the rest. How he knows where to find the pieces of greatness that are the quotes from brilliant humanitarians, philosophers, historians, etc. is in itself a huge achievement. He starts each day w/one of those quotes, then a meditation to think about and finally a recommendation for daily journaling. Whether or not you journal, the quotes and Singer's interpretations are applicable to everybody. I knew this was something special when I realized I was putting aside additional time every day to read and think about the quote and meditations. It's hard in a busy and hectic world to believe that there's really time to find your passions and act on them. Just by trying to act on his daily journaling thought and the quote of the day, I feel a little bit more promise in my day, even if it lasts for only a little bit. There's also recommendations for a book a month that I would trust now that I've spent some time with this Daily Walk.

    Excellent

    Reviewed by Carol Hoyer, PhD, for Reader Views (8/11)

    As a person in recovery trying to make sense of my life and to identify changes I need to make, "Your Daily Walk with the Great Minds" is one of the best books I have read. Author Richard A. Singer did an excellent job in writing easy-to-understand terms to help us walk the path.
    Singer expresses that if he can just change one person or inspire him or her to make positive changes he has done his job. I believe he has done his job.

    The book is very inspirational and uplifting. For each day of the week Singer has given words of wisdom from people like Einstein, Mother Teresa and Abe Lincoln. The book starts from January 1st with a quote, a meditation and, most importantly, a journaling exercise. He has provided an author¿s index with the date to find the desired information. In addition, there is a subject index by date, i.e., for ¿adversity,¿ ¿appreciation,¿ ¿can¿t.¿ It is easy to find what you are experiencing in the here and now. For each month there are suggested books to read, most of which one can find at the library.

    What I particularly liked, in addition to the above, is this is a great book to use for reading groups. As I reviewed this book, I felt hopeful that I could put these techniques to use to make positive changes in my life. Readers will enjoy ¿Your Daily Walk with the Great Minds.¿ It really is a must read, making notes along the way, then stop to look at what one really wants out of life.

    Live To Read

    If a reader is in need of quiet contemplation and inspirational passages this is the book for him/her! Each passage in the year contains a quote, meditation piece, and a personal journaling query or suggestion. These are actually very good pieces, the reader will be able to infer that an extensive amount of thought was put into selecting just what to put down.


    There is also a passage labelled " A Conversation with Rick Singer." This passage contains questions and answers that a reader may wonder after completing the first half of the book; for instance, why did Mr. Singer decide to write this book and what did he hope people would get from reading it? The book also contains an index with a complete list of the people who stated the quotes in the book for the reader's reference. This book is recommended for people who enjoy self-help nonfiction.

    Wisdom to Meditation to Creativity to Commitment

    Richard A Singer, Jr. has found a way to guide everyone fortunate enough to read his book YOUR DAILY WALKS WITH THE GREAT MINDS to a life of contemplation and enrichment, not by seeking out seminars throughout the world, but instead by relying on time alone with his secure companionship of selected words and accompaniments. He quietly and gently supports our capacity to improve our physical and spiritual lives while at the same time sharing words on a daily basis from famous thinkers that expand our survey of history and appreciation for the human spirit. Singer draws brief but significant single sentence quotes from a wide range of people - from famous physicians such as William Osler and Freud, to news commentators like Dan Rather, to painters like Van Gogh and Picasso, scientists like Einstein, philosophers like William James and Nietzsche, composers such as Beethoven, writers like Henry James, poets like Emerson, Whitman and Frost, and the many inspirational voices of the past like Gandhi, MLK, JFK, and Mother Theresa. Opening each day's 'walk' with such a thought, Singer then offers a related meditational though, follows that with instruction to enter our responses in a journal, and then extracts a pledge from this exercise to make a difference in our own lives and in the global community. Self-help books are many: some are trendy and some are timeless. This little portable volume is one that will last far beyond the year that it is chronicled to accompany. Once again Richard Singer extends a firm and wise hand to increase our awareness of the past, our place in the present, and our choices for a future, richer because of the time we have spent with his generous spirit.
