Reading Notes To Myself is one of those rare experiences that comes only once in a great while.  The editor who discovered the book said, "When I first read Prather's manuscript it was late at night and I was tired, but by the time I finished it, I felt rested and alive.  Since then I've reread it many times and it says even more to me now."  The book serves as a beginning for the reader's exploration of his or her own life and as a treasury of thoughtful and insightful reminders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Read! I was given this book when it first came out & thoroughly enjoyed it!! As with any good read you always go back for more. There have been times when I've felt the need to find that little gem of wisdom that I may have overlooked & marveled at the simplicity & power of the words. "Notes To Myself" not only will you appreciate the thoughts behind it..You'll appreciate yourself!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A re-re-re-re-readable book A unique book which gently lays out the profound thoughts which we all would take note of if we'd stop to notice. Hugh Prather noticed. He shares his questions, answers, and observations... in a book with no page numbers. It inspires and provokes thought no matter how many times I read it over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pivotal I first read this book as teenager. Looking back, to say it was an influence on my life would be an understatement. It opened my mind to new perspectives and strengthened my spirit. I gained confidence and a greater appreciation of people around me. I have since bought several copies for friends, always with the same profound results that I experienced for myself so many years ago. This book has the power to change lives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from notes to myself I read this book in 1978 and have reread it many times. It maybe small as a book but the information, the insight and the discussions with friends on the meaning of some of his notes of the day have made many smile. Should be read by everyone who is eager to be himself. I recently gave it to a friend and the fun is starting all over. Many thanks Mr. Prather for your words.
