Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A psychotherapist and founder of the Virtues Project, Popov (The Family Virtues Guide), found that, despite her success, she was beset by stress and fatigue. Diagnosed with postpolio syndrome, she restored herself by following a 10-point plan she developed as a guide to living a more fulfilling and less frenzied life: maintaining a clean body and following a nutritious diet, practicing correct breathing and exercise, resting daily, pursuing peaceful activities, making time for play and praying frequently. At the heart of Popov's gentle message is a deep concern for the lack of meaning in everyday existence and the unkind way people often treat one another. She strongly recommends such virtues as acceptance and appreciation of intimates, practicing thankfulness and making joy a priority. There's very little to argue with here, though Popov does not always avoid trite phrasing or repetition in making it manifest.

A Pace of Grace is a book to keep by your side, not one to put aside. It is a book I will read over and over again and have purchased many copies for my friends. The author's real life anacdotes make it a very readable book. At the end of each chapter she highlights the main points and introduces the reader to what is coming next. This helps to build anticipation. The author offers manageable solutions to universal frustrations with daily living. After reading each chapter I was energized and motivated to make some needed changes in my life. I am very grateful to have this inspirational resourse and love sharing it with others.

Amazing book. I am reading it a second time. It is the first book I have read that lays out a clear path for a life well worth living. The first time I read it I sat down and read it cover to cover in a week. It was a great way to get an overview. Now I am going through the book again and incorporating the ten steps into my everyday living. The 10 steps are not for the faint of heart and have certainly challenged me but are clearly steps to a life filled with joy and grace. Enjoy the book, a new way of looking at life and a plan to live a life well worth living.

Format: Paperback
I've read dozens of self-help type books over the years, so I no longer expect to encounter anything terribly "new" when reading a book that advises a person to slow down and smell the roses, so to speak. So I confess that I approached this book with a bit of cynicism. But this book will move even the worst cynic. It spoke to me in a way that no other book has and inspired me to make major changes in my life that I've talked about making for many years. The recommendations may feel familiar - eat well, rest, get your finances under control, practice forgiveness - but the author inspires by making clear that taking good care of one's self is a spiritual task of the highest order. Adopting a set of practices that help us to achieve a pace of grace is necessary to ensure that we honor - every hour of every day - the virtues within us and bring our best and highest self to every relationship, challenge and opportunity in our lives. I cannot recommend this book more highly. In fact, I am about to send it to a friend.

Format: Paperback
A Pace of Grace provides a refreshing, practical approach to balanced living that any of us in our fast-paced world will do well to pause and consider. The author's style is candid, reflective and inspiring. She complements her own story of overcoming paralyzing fatigue with the experiences and insights of many others from across a wide range of spiritual and cultural traditions. This book provides the ways and means of living out the author's prescription to "fill your cup and you will have an overflowing sufficiency to give to everyone you love and anything you do."

Format: Paperback
Refreshing, renewing, and full of hope! A Pace of Grace is the first book I have craved to read in its entirety. It is nourishing and so practical to apply to all types of lifestyles. The author, Linda Kavelin Poppov, has shared such a treasure and delivers her experiences with such tenderness and understanding that those who read her book will be inspired to make little shifts in their personal lives to allow for a "graceful" life.

I enjoy reading; but I don't always hold onto many books. This is a keeper. It offers workable ideas on "restoring grace, sanity, and vitality to our lives".
