"Some of the things I read I would not have believed if I had not experienced these truths myself. This book confirmed what I've observed in life, but have never been taught. It also provided comfort and wisdom."
"This lovely book helped me see that I was placing burdens on myself that didn't help anyone. It helped guide me to authenticity and validated the need for a supportive community. (You may want to skip chapter 2, though ;-)"
"Although the life practices suggested by the author are a bit rigid, and not guided spiritually, I found it helpful to see how saying no to what matters least allows you to have time and energy for what really matters to you."
"This book has been so helpful to me, a person who used to be overresponsible for others' happiness. I realize now that I can't make others happy, but perhaps I can inspire others when I take care of myself."
"This book is successful in showing how you can actually prevent someone else from growing (child, spouse, friend, employee, boss) when you try to help them or allow them to use you. This book serves as a guide in distinguishing between being selfish and playing God."
