Amazing book, easy to read and appropriate for everyone, perfect for the evening reading on my hammock. It offers advice on relationships, parenting and many other life issues, which we face daily. I just turned 40 and I wish this book was around twenty years ago. Chapter 38 was life changing for me personally...it’s about us holding grudges. Grudges feed on unforgiveness...author offers perfect explanation which is followed by a short example. I plan on purchasing more books as Christmas presents because I know everyone will enjoy it!
Who would've thought swiss cheese or land mines could contain such wisdom? Woolworth does a phenomenal job distilling life's biggest challenges into short, simple and fun vignettes. "The Waterwheel" is perfect for flipping through on the go or for deeper digestion. Highly recommended
A fine gift, or just to keep on the bedside table, The Waterwheel is not so much a book as it is a thoughtful companion offering insights to help navigate life's relationships. The clear, simple prose is organized to let the reader wander in when the mood strikes and visit even a single observation or helpful idea. The author distills her decades of experience as a marriage and family therapist into this slim, beautifully illustrated collection of valuable perspectives.
Waterwheel indeed offers “practical wisdom” seasoned with humor and delightful illustrations to provide the reader with a toolbox of clever responses and strategies for navigating the everyday tangles one is sure to encounter on this journey called life.
