Recommended for: everyone interested in trying to wrap their head around new possiblitiies
Read in August, 2007

Books titled "The Art of Possiblity" generally lead to eyerolling or furtive purchases when one is certain nobody notices the self help paperback under the stack of serious books and leading journals, but the yellow cover caught my attention and I thumbed through it, spotted the following: "Indeed, all of life comes to us in narrative form; it's a story we tell" and I knew I had to buy it, read it, tell somebody about it. I'm five years into my quest to simplify my life and what I know is that I love complexity: complex situations, really complex people, etc. My desire for simplicity is a lie. Or maybe not. What does this have to do with the book? Well, I'm not exactly certain, but after reading the first two chapters, I'm looking at "possibility" head on. This book was originally commissioned by Harvard for reading by business thinktank guru types, and the authors offer insight from thier work experience (artist and therapist). This is not one of those "Secret" books that promise your thoughts will make you rich and famous. It is a book that suggests, like Glenda, the good witch of the East from Oz, that everything you'll ever need "is all inside."

Shauna I have a weakness for goofy new age-y books, Danna. I'm interested to hear what you think about this one when you're done...
