Loved this little book! It's an intense, powerful read in a beautiful package. Pema Chodron shares insight that cuts right to the core of your being. If you are grieving, heartsick or find yourself in the middle of a chaotic time, this book could offer the best "heart advice" you'll find. Chodron is a Buddhist and is approaching life from a very Buddhist perspective, so this might not jive with all readers, but it's very easy to tease out the message from the delivery (just like with Marianne Williamson and her uber-Christian language.)

I would also recommend this book to anyone who teaches yoga, has a serious yoga or meditation practice, or has read How Yoga Works. It will inform, enlighten and bring a whole new dimension to your practice, meditation and understanding of yoga, meditation and the Yoga Sutras.
