I can understand other reviewers finding the book a bit too new-agey, but I liked that aspect. My motivation for such a high rating is that the author is honest in mentioning her own story, as examples that I was able to relate to easily, not some wifty, theoretical nonsense mired in "principles" and such.
Overall, this is a thoughtful reflection by an interfaith minister. Unfortunately, it seems to emphasize meaning, the author reveals some of her own rather depressing, bizarre behavior that may emphasize her message to some, but was not necessary to add value to the message.
This book has some really great sections, but other parts got a bit too "new age-y" for me. Worth reading, though.
Awesome. Getting ready to read it again. The perfect book to start the new year with new resolutions.

Find meaning somewhere else.
Difficult to get into.
