I'm a fan of Melody Beattie's work but this book topped the list for me. It was as though she spoke directly to me, and, I rather suppose that's the point. The book is real and familiar in that you read it as though you're speaking with a trusted and dear friend. Beattie reaches in with insightful and compassionate, yet, bold ideas that hit straight in the heart of the matter. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is searching for their truth, on a spiritual journey, or who simply wants to ...more

This is the third time I read this book, and I actually read it from start to finish this time. This is one of two books I always pick up when I'm going through a rough time (the other one is "Letters to a Young Poet"), and it never disappoints. I have tons of notes in the margins and underlined portions. It is insightful, motivating, and inspiring. The exercises will stay with you, and you'll find yourself doing them at random moments. This is one I keep on my desk instead of my bookcase...

This book literally saved me when my life fell apart a year ago. As I read it, I highlighted everything that felt right...quotes that were me. At the end of the book I went back through and wrote all my highlights in my journal. To this day, reading over my journal brings me peace just as this book did the first time I read it.

The basic premise ("tools for discovering your emotional and spiritual power") and the talk of "home" really appealed to me. In this book, Beattie shares her personal journey, other people's stories, suggestions, philosophical spiritual musings, etc.

The downside is that this book is verbose and cluttered. There's little organization or structured flow. It reminds me a whole lot of stream of consciousness divided into paragraphs.

The upside is that if you're willing to wade through it all, there

Het boek gaat over het gemis dat iemand kan hebben in zijn leven en hoe je het gemis weer kan opvullen. Het is een zelf-hulp/new age boek over het terugvinden van jezelf. De auteur schrijft het boek uit haar ogen en in de ik-vorm. Met verhalen van haar en haar omgeving probeert ze de lezer te laten zien hoe het anders kan. Ze geeft via de verhalen tips en met een duidelijk overzicht en quotes laat geeft ze een goede handleiding af voor de ontdekker van het eigen ik.
Een goed boek om hier en d

So this was a great book for the current self-help regimen. At times she went a little mystic and got very soul-y and cosmic, but pretty much, it was a book about how to equip your soul with things in life to make it through the difficult times. She has activities at the end of each chapter, like writing, or meditation, that summarize what was talked about. My personal favorite was the chapter called You Are Never Alone (because there are times when I would beg to differ). It was very good. Will ...more

Loved her other books. This one got too New Age for my preference so I just skimmed it.

If you're serious about "doing the work" of living a three-dimensional life, unencumbered by old scripts, read this book. Sip a chapter at a time, let its wisdom permeate your soul, then sip the next chapter. You won't regret it.
