Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Full of insight on the art of living I really enjoyed this book, truly, honestly. Every day we each age a bit, usually thinking more about managing to get through the day than how to get through life with grace. This book however is full of stories and facts to help us to see the big picture. After reading this book I am filled with hope for my own ability to live to a happy old age and reminded that the small troubles of today will not impact on my long term happiness. No matter what your age I think this book has great insight on how to sift through life to find the things that matter and hang on to them.
