Still good the third time around

I hadn't looked at this book for a few years and recently started reading it again for the third or fourth time. There are some days when the reading doesn't really touch me and other days when it's exactly what I need to hear. I've attended three short seminars given by Alan and find him to be a loveable, real human being. I stayed around after one of the seminars and went out with a small group to have dinner with him. There are some 'teachers' who seem to don a mantle of self-importance and wouldn't consider breaking bread with a lowly seminar attendee. Alan is certainly not one of them. So, five stars to Alan and all of his books.

A Deep, Refreshing, Rejuvenating and joyful breath of life!

Someone recently gave me this book as a gift and I have since given away 6 more copies! Wisdom in bite-sized digestable daily pieces that seems to magically be just what I need to hear on that particular day. Not only does Alan share wonderful inspiring and insightful stories, but this book is a great reminder of the power of metaphor in our own lives. I find now on a daily basis I am making deeper meaning of my own life experiences...recongizing and recording those little "ah ha" moments that happen each day. The people I gave the book to as a gift have since called to thank me, reporting that they felt the message was written specifically for them on that particular day. They are now passing on copies as gifts to their friends. The wisdom in this book is a "pass it on" kind of thing...just too good to keep to yourself. The biggest challenge with this book is to simply allow "one daily inspiration" to be enough and let it really sink in. I keep wanting to read ahead!

This book will bring you joy!

This delightful book will definitely lift you up when you need an inspirational message. Sometimes, I read daily devotions or other motivational books and eventually stop reading them -- This book is not like that! It "hits the spot" when I need an instant mood change or something to pick me up out of the doldrums...or just when I need a different perspective at the end of a day. Sometimes, I read several entries at a time. I often share pertinent insights from this book with friends, and I am convinced that some of the gems of wisdom from this book are single-handedly pulling one of my friends out of a mid-life crisis. This author is truly blessed with the ability to touch the common with the divine. This book touches people - let it touch you!

One of the most inspiring books I've ever read!

A Deep Breath of Life is an absolute joy from beginning to end. It's as uplifting and thought-provoking as are all of Alan's books, but this one is truly a gem. If you want to explore your spiritual nature, expand your awareness of life above and beyond the material realm, and experience an inner peace on a deeper level than ever before, this is a must read. If you're like many people and your good intentions outweigh the time you can dedicate to reading, then this book is an especially good choice for you. There's a message for each day of the year which includes a quote, a short story, a prayer and an affirmation. A Deep Breath of Life is filled with soul-searching anecdotes and positive thoughts; without a doubt one of the finest ways I can think of to begin a day. Although it was designed to be read one page per day, I must confess I couldn't limit myself to the requested pace. Perhaps it's my impatient nature, but more likely it's Alan's unrivaled mastery of verbal expression deep with insight that keeps you from putting this book down. At the beginning of the book, he takes your heart into his hands, treats it with special loving care throughout each glorious page and then returns it to you much more open and healed. Enjoy!

The best daily inspiration book out there--it has it all!

I think A Deep Breath of Life is the best daily inspiration book out there. It has it all--heartwarming and humorous stories, with inspiring messages and powerful prayers and affirmations that gently lift me from any feelings of anxiety or sadness to that loving, peaceful place of empowerment and joy. What a wonderful way to start the day! I have also made Alan's book my number one gift for all occasions to family, friends, colleagues, and others I meet who may appreciate its daily dose of loving, spiritual nourishment. In fact, since I bought my first copy several years ago, I have given away 48 copies of A Deep Breath of Life!
