I buy anything that this author writes because she is amazing. I especially love this book because i am going through a most difficult time in my life and i keep this at my bedside and reading it calms me down and brings me back to the present. It has given me a reminder about acceptance, and open heart and achieving serenity. This book is actually 3 parts. 1 part written by Sylvia and 2 parts written by other Buddhists who know insight meditation. A gem of a book.

I chose this book because I listened to an interview on NPR with Sylvia Boorstein. Feeling inspired, I bought the book.
It was an easy read. Since I am going through a difficult time in my life, this book has been very helpful. Readers may find it a practical guide to finding a path through the rough patches.
