Rate this book
If you feel that you are hurtling through life, pouring energy, money and time into things that may not matter in the end - and you want to STOP - then this book is for you. It will help you find the space to discover WHAT REALLY MATTERS to you - and how to integrate it more fully into your daily routine, so you can LIVE LIFE to the fullest extent possible. This might involve challenging the beliefs that hold you back, or letting go of shattered dreams. Draper encourages you to embark on a 'stop doing' list, to go more slowly, become aware of what you can hear and see, smell, and touch - and to pay attention to those spiritual essentials that will nourish your soul, bring a smile to your face, and joy to your heart.

Firstly, my paperback edition contained 146 pages and not 176. This read nearly got 3 stars but owing to how the author wrapped up and summarised at the end, providing massive food for thought for the reader it now gets a 4. The author introduces countless quotes and ideas from a raft of other authors, mainly it seems from a spiritual background and then deconstructs them in a simplistic way and then gentle nudges you to consider weaving the thought into your life. In particular I loved, as a keen long distance walker, the entry on the 'lost art of sauntering'.

Recently I've been interested my reading about books that will help me to see life differently. While reading, you think, you test the author advices or theories and you see if they suit you or not.
Of course, you will not read the book as fast as an entertaining story and of course, you may not want to work on yourself when you are tired...

However, this book was a nice surprise. The author doesn't preach. He gives concrete life examples. Ones that we can all relate to. After that, it's up to you to see if you want to try...

Personnaly, this book has followed me even after I've read it. To stay open to change, to stop trying to force my own agenda and let life surprise me with unexpected events.
Even the bad ones and the awful challenges we can have to overcome can help you to grow stronger.
Of course, before you can laugh at your troubles, you are stress and depress. But just look at your emotions and reactions to event under a different light and you can change the way they will impact you.

It's easy to say than to do. It's why I've liked to read this book. It has put some events of my life into a new perspective.
