The exercises described by the author, Richard Smoley, plant the seeds of freedom in the heart—a freedom before only dimly seen or experienced.
The book is not 'preachy' not filled with "thou shallt not", instead it puts the power to heal and to love in the readers own mind and heart. What could be better?
This author 'knows' the soul and the human predicament. The Deal works if only we allow ourselves to read it. Written with compassion and intelligence this author shares a simple truth.
The idea expounded is quite monumental in its scope once the power of forgiveness is fully grasped and digested.
His message is succinct and well-written. I read this small book in two days and the effects were immediate. The only thing you can lose is your skepticism.
