I have to agree, the same old thing, I did get through it but I don't think I will try for another book like this, won this from goodreads, I thought I did a review on this book long ago, now I discover I didn't do it on 4 books. Anyway I finally am reviewing now. I really didn't care for this particular book, sorry. I don't remember when I finished so I'll have to get as close as I can on when I finished.

I really enjoyed this uplifting book of meditations. The true life biographical examples were inspiring. I highly recommend this for all who grapple with the value and meaning of enduring pain.
