Editorial Reviews

2017 Nautilus Book Awards Silver Award - Personal Growth"The Book of Calm by Nancy G. Shapiro is an extensively researched and intelligently written text that offers guidance and support for creating a life infused with calm. The book's friendly storytelling tone provides a layer of comfort, while its extensive use of scientific research gives the writing even more credibility. Chapters are short yet provide just enough material in the way of stories, research, and thoughtful suggestions to be thoroughly contemplative before they are moved forward from. Even the book's cover evokes a feeling of tranquility."—Clarion Reviews"A book that provides messages to help readers maintain calmness amid the many external and internal factors that stand in the way. . . . Shapiro uses a variety of effective tools to present her ideas-including stories, poetry, and scientific research . . . its eloquent ideas should satisfy an audience seeking tranquility."—Kirkus Reviews"Readers will learn to break the habits that limit their potential . . . to make choices with clarity, face the fears that make them utterly vulnerable, and to connect deeply with themselves and others. The Book of Calm is a very relevant book . . . that most of us need in today's challenging, fast-paced environment."—Readers Favorite"Here is a book as necessary for today as breath. Shapiro is a great storyteller, and she guides us out of the dark woods of fear, self-doubt, and powerlessness and into the calm within chaos—huge subjects that she masters in a personal way so the reader can definitely say, 'I can do it.'"—Perie Longo, Santa Barbara Poet Laureate and author of Baggage Claim"In The Book of Calm, Nancy Shapiro elegantly interweaves personal experience with the hard-won wisdom of growth and transformation.

This is a generous book, with a quiet yet unmistakable call to nurture your own soul."  —Elizabeth Rosner, author of Survivor Café: The Legacy of Trauma and the Labyrinth of Memory ?"The Book of Calm is like sitting with your dearest friend, tea in hand, feeling heard, held, and lifted. With practical tools, inspirational wisdom, and evocative storytelling, Nancy deftly guides you through the unpredictable thickets of turbulent living and into the clear, refreshing wellspring of calm." ?—Stephanie Bennett Vogt, author of Your Spacious Self and A Year to Clear"The Book of Calm delivers exactly what it promises.
