Some of the excerpts included in this book will be familiar to many a reader. Most of the authors have instant name recognition. What makes the book readable however is neither the familarity of the content nor the writer. It is the assemblage of thought brought together under five general rubrics: search, faith, love, meditation, death--all wonderfully provocative concepts that lend themselves to reflection. And most of us have thought about these at some point in our lives. Here the entries are brief enough for us to do a quick read (and a quick re-read if necessary), and still have time to ponder--all within a 10 to 15-minute time frame. My recommendation is to read an entry a day, and spend the rest of the day pondering the content. From Deepak Chopra to Isabel Allende, from Mother Teresa to Maya Angelou, each of the twenty-five authors shares a bit of insight, one facet of a larger jewel that we come to recognize as our self. For its inspirational aspect, this is the sort of book you might want to share with a friend going through difficult times.
