In the West, we know how to achieve - in spades! We know how to plan and execute. We know how to set goals and objectives. We know how to live life from A to Z. But how do we get from Z to A? What do we know of navigating that space in between? When life as we know it ends, before we see a new beginning, there is a creative void where all things are possible. That’s what t ...more

Recommends it for: People who like philosophical/self-guidance books
I am not into philosophical or self-guidance books. But this is my first book from First Reads Giveaway. Okay, I got three other books from the same author, and you know what, this is the fourth time she is sending me. The first 3 shipments of the books didn't reach me. But when I informed the author, she apologized and sent me again. So, you see, I owe to her, to read the books.

Z2A - the space in between - okay, let's see a gist of what Eva Dillner means. To understand the below 2 lines, you ne

I received this book as a result of "winning" it in a random draw on the giveaway page.

I understand that this book is intended as a self-help book, designed to re-ignite creative or personal "flow", but to be honest, I found the book a bit of a non-starter for me. The pictures were interesting, but there was only one that appealed.

For me, overall it felt and read more like a combination of train-of-thought writing and a disjointed autobiography than a help book. It wasn't badly written or badly

I received this book as a Good Reads first read. Thank you.

This book is full of inspirational messages like; take time for yourself. This is not unlike the saying take time to smell the roses, but not exactly like it either. It is about following your heart and allowing yourself to imagine. Enjoy life and do something unexpected.

Beautifully written and illustrated.

It is quite rare to read a book that truly speaks to you. Well, ‘Z 2 A’ penned by Eva Dillner, Swedish- writer, artist, therapist and teacher specializing in helping people during the transformation stage did just that. It spoke to me. I am so glad that I got is as a give away on GoodReads.

She was one of the fifteen Swedish artists selected for the Tellus Art project in India in 2010 and this book, interposed with photographs of her paintings is a rich spiritual tapestry helping the reader in th

“We live and learn. Might as well roll with the punches. Put another way, you can’t force your will on the universe.”

A phrase from the book which made me paused and smiled.

I didn’t thought that I would love this book even better than her other books nor on any other philosophical ones.:)

We know how to get from A to Z. But what happens when life goes out of order, before we move on to a new day, there is a void we need to think about. This is what the b

I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway.

I loved the fact that this book was self published. It felt unedited, which isn't always a bad thing.

I really enjoyed the author's artwork throughout the book - not only was it beautiful, it made the reading experience richer and more personal.

I am going through a Z to A moment myself, so it was particularly interesting to view this as a chance to let myself be open to opportunity and creative thought instead of just a stressful phase before the next

In the spirit of this book I wanted to finish off things and then start reading in the space in between, which is NOW. I could never have guessed the power of this book, a power very different from that of YA books and novels in general but one that still manages to keep one reading into the wee hours of the night (which is 12 o'clock for me). My expectations for the power and influence of this book are much higher now than they used to be, and I have a keen belief that I won't be disap

The pictures in this book were truly beautiful! The writing, in my opinion, was fairly good. I realize this is supposed to be a self help book, and as far as that goes, it was pretty good.
