Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

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.

A friend introduced me to this little gem as a teenager nearly twenty years ago, and I've returned to it often over the years in times of stress. The piercing clarity and brutal honesty of these simple, yet profound, observations slows my racing thoughts and magically puts things into perspective. So find a quiet place, set aside an hour or two, and let Hugh Prather show you how to live in the moment and rid yourself of that insatiable craving for external validation. You won't regret it.

I received this book from a friend in 1990. The copyright in the book is 1970, and the cost was a mere $2. I read this book at a time in my life when things were as bad as I thought they could get. I underlined passages, wrote notes on pages, and each time I read it, I feel like I'm getting in touch with myself again.

It's an extremely good feeling when you can read your own thoughts and views on the world from someone else.. from someone you don't know. Everyone should read this book, and then pass it on to friends, or children.

Format: Paperback
This book brings clarity to our thoughts, and bridges the gap between the grey world of uncertainty we live in and the black and white world we would want to live in ... or at least some of us. It's nice to stumble across such illuminating guides along this path of life that don't necessarily provide answers, but light the way to an inner discovery, that unto itself, illuminates all answers. I am constantly awed by the immeasurability of his clarity.
If you're a searcher, this is a book you'd probably like to read.

Format: Paperback
When I first read this book I thought someone had gone inside my head and rearranged my own thoughts and spoke them for me. It became a reference for me when I needed help with everyday stress showing me that no matter what, we are all in this together. I bought the book and whenever I came across a friend that seemed as though they needed some peace in thier lives, I would give it to them. I've given away five so far and I'm going to buy another one, this book is one I want to always have in my home

Format: Paperback
It is 'the tool' to indulge inwardly.Explore your depths - to get thrill about what all good you posess, and to cure any hard feelings beautifully.
It is kind of a guiding light and medicine for the self.
You got to use this tool atleast once to see how it feels to be just yourself, your very own self.

Format: Paperback
I was 15 when I first read " notes to myself " , today I am 21. But I still find it reassuring and insightful every time I brisk through the pages . This is a book on every person , there are moments when you will agree and say to yourself " these are my thoughts " , and other times when you will disagree and have a heated mental debate with yourself. It's easy to read and what is particularly appealling is that it feels like a conversation . Since it's very personal , it creates a connection which makes you believe that YOU had a hand in writing this book . Maybe , when you read it first , you'll enjoy it just for the book that it is . But it's when you pick it up again and again that you realise how much this book is You and Life .

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Length: 2:42 Mins
I was introduced to this book by one of my friend. Initially I was not impressed because book do not have any classification of information or chapters to choose according to your liking (I am so used to read on relevant portions of the books)... but as I start reading the book, writer amazed me with choice of words.. I have used many sentences in the book as my facebook and skype statuses. There were so many things which I have used in my own life but I was not able to describe them in good words, thanks to book I got words to my those expressions... I am thankful for my friend to recommend this book to me.

I've read many books by this author and I am always satisfied. These books not only express what and ineresting world it is through someone elses eyes but gives you the sight to see it for yourself. I found that I enjoy my own views on things a little bit more now than I ever did before. I suggest this book and the others for one of those peaceful nights at home along with some encouragement for the next day.
