The book discusses not only the personal examen, but offers suggestions and stories about groups that have used the prayer, families that have grown closer to each other and to God using the prayer, and suggestions for varied ways of using the prayer. The book is easy to read with colorful illustrations which give it an inviting feel which will help the reader identify what is important, hold on to it, and if the spirit if the examen is kept, will see God's presence in daily life.
So my boyfriend lent me this book, which was given to him by a Jesuit priest, and it has been excellent for my baby-steps endeavor.
The process is thoroughly explained and there's even a 'trouble-shooting' section at the end that tells the reader what to do if upsetting or difficult problems arise during your examen reflections. I've been doing the examen process for a week now, each night, and it is a calming and educative way to end my day by listening to myself.
I would really recommend buying this book to give as gifts for people like myself who are curious....
