4.0 out of 5 stars Comforting and inspiring, October 26, 2009
This review is from: The Not So Big Life: Making Room for What Really Matters (Audio CD)
'The Not So Big Life' (on CD) kept me company on my hour-long each way commutes to and from my grad school practicum. Though I've read plenty of self help books along the same lines, something about this book appealed to me. And I'm so glad I picked it up. It may, as some mentioned, be repetitious at times, but anyone who's been in therapy knows the need to hear reassuring, hopeful things over and over. It's so easy to slip into bad habits, to forget to take care of yourself, to forget how to treat negative thoughts. Hearing things reinforced is a very good thing.

I plan to listen to this work again. I don't think I got quite everything the first time through. It's tough when it's an audiobook. It's not like you can take notes while driving! But so many things I wished I could have written down.

I love the simplicity of the ideas, and the deep wisdom. What Susanka says should be heard by everyone. If it were, this would be a much better world.
