If you have ever been one to believe that "If you are not outraged, then you are not paying attention", then this book can help. It's a great book about being able to take the good with the bad in the world. I read, and re-read portions of this book often. I would often read a page or two, then fill my journal with reflections.

This is one of those books that has every other page dog-eared so you can refer to it later. I took it one step further and wrote stuff down into a notebook! Great suggestions on how to live more peacefully...

A book I return to again and again for its pragmatic insights on how to cope in spiritual productive ways with this very real world.
