"A tremendous resource for anyone seeking a bite-sized look at the philosophies of many self-help legends, including sacred scriptures of different traditions.
Because the range and depth of the sources are so huge, the cumulative reading effect is amazing. Alternatively, it educates and edifies, affirms and inspires. Often both" — Stephen R Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
"This is an exceptional and diverse collection for anyone interested in understanding the possibilities of the self" — Ellen Langer, Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, author of Mindfulness
