Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is absolutely amazing! At first I was somewhat confused by it, but from about page 25 through to the end I found it very understandable, and startlingly relevant to me personally. I am 31 years old and have recently begun uncovering many of my buried issues, and soul-searching like never before. Then my mom gave me this book at just the right time in my life. Reading it has given me so much insight and clarity that I am going to reread it immediately to make sure I fully absorb its messages. I then plan to reread it at least once or twice a year, lest I forget any of it! It is that good. And it's very readable, and concise enough that any moderate-to-fast reader could get through it within a day or two. Thank you Robert Bly, and William Booth! This book is a salve for the soul.
