Great book to pick out one's personal problem/s and read how the saints dealt with it/them...argumentativeness, family difficulties, financial difficulties, gossip, grief, tardiness, uncertainty...it's all there, in alphabetized chapters. The bullet points in "Something You Might Try" at the end of each chapter, with suggestions for further reading in Scripture, classics, and contemporary readings is priceless.

I check this out every couple of years from the library. I read and focus on the 3-4 areas I need to work. There is lots of specific food for thought, quotes, and scripture, as well as stories and examples of the saints. This is a great virtue/vice tool for spiritual development.
