I have, over the years since its publication, purchased fourteen copies of this book, as well as the audio version, all of which I have spread liberally among my friends and loved ones. The author brings the ancient wisdom of Buddhism into the vernacular of today, and provides a workable approach to what she aptly refers to as, "managing gracefully." The chapters are short and enjoyable, plainly rendering their lessons through engaging, digestible illustrations from familiar life situations. A further benefit of this worthy volume is in its encouraging the reader's curiosity in regard to Buddhist history, traditions and teachings. If life seems too mighty a struggle, perhaps Sylvia Boorstein proffers some relief.

This book outlining the basic Buddhist principles and changed my life for the better and is something I highly recommend. Whenever I have a strong negative emotional reaction to something, I do my best to apply the principles in the book.

I found this easy to read and she has a great way of useing her own life experiences as examples. I would give one to everyone I know if I could.
