Quick read to remind us of the importance of praying this beautiful prayer. Not judgmental or pushy. Explains how and why to pray, and suggests ways to overcome inevitable distractions.
This is a wonderful book. Karen Edmisten has written an interesting, thoughtful, spiritually helpful small book on the rosary.

Many books have been written about the rosary, but Karen's has the unique perspective of coming from being an atheist, and converting to Catholicism. Her memories of objections to Catholicism and Mary and the rosary add interest and provide her with the ability to maintain a fresh perspective on a very traditional prayer.

As a regular rosary-pray-er who needed no incentive
This book helped me see how practical and extremely beautiful the rosary can be, even when we are too busy to realize it. I'd recommend it to anyone with questions or doubts about the rosary, or anyone who thinks their alone when they can't sit through a decade without getting distracted.
This is a lovely, inspiring, practical, direct book about the Rosary in particular and prayer in general. It is a wise little book. I enjoyed it immensely.

Great book on the rosary for those new to the devotion or those who aren't so comfortable with it. Sensible but still warm in tone. I enjoyed it.
Slowly reading through this during 'quiet' time in the afternoons. A wonderful, gentle book on the rosary from a fellow convert.
