If you haven't read any of Bernie's previous books, don't start with this one. Don't get me wrong, I hold Bernie Siegel in great esteem. I think his work is ground-breaking,he has touched and helped many people in his work initially as a compassionate surgeon and later with exceptional cancer patients.

This small book is packed full of short stories about everyday miracles. It was touching,inspiring, and sad in places. It gives the reader hope that miracles do exsist and that they can happen to anyone. Some areas will make you teary both in saddness and joy. But overall this little book is short, easy to read, and gives the reader something to ponder. :)
