This is the third or fourth book by Pema Chodron that I've read in the past five-or-so years. I'd be hard pressed to differentiate among them. That's not a negative comment, though. In every book, Pema's basically telling the same story: she's sharing the messages of the Buddha on how to alleviate dukkha (suffering, dissastisfaction) and live more sanely. Like any good teacher, she makes her points in various ways so that we're more likely to get the message: maybe understand more clearly, catch a nuance we may have missed the first time, lessen our resistance to change. She speaks plainly and humorously; reading or listening to her words, you feel as if you're sitting with a friend who's setting you straight, in the kindest possible way.
