Format: Hardcover
How on earth did the author research so many ways that people make wishes - from all over the world! This makes fun reading even if you're not into wishing - though the author makes a point of taking wishing out of the superstition category and placing it in the human realm of stating goals, relating it to current practices of affirmations, and suggests that wishing works best when rooted in reality. This book lifts itself well out of the fantasy area by quoting poets and sages - many well-known names. I can see this as a general book to fill many gifting needs, from graduations, new jobs, get-well wishes, and the wishingest time of all - birthdays.
