Don't Panic!: How to Keep Going When the Going Gets Tough Paperback – April 15, 2016
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

“Maureen knows pain. She knows chronic illness and the isolation that comes with it, the feelings of abandonment and all the related emotional responses. However, as a woman of faith, she also understands that suffering can be a way to unite with Jesus, our suffering Savior. As a prayerful woman, she understands the spiritual medicine that is available to us through our conversations with the Lord. As a member of CUSA, an apostolate of persons with chronic illness and disability, she also knows the need for support from others. She offers her support through her writing apostolate as well as through her lectures. This latest effort is another in the library of wisdom that she has offered us, wisdom that is a product of her life of prayer and ministry to others.” —Fr. Lawrence Jagdfeld, OFM, administrator, CUSA, an Apostolate of Persons with Chronic Illness or Disability (www.cusan.org)
“To those in crisis, to those who fear, to those who love, Maureen Pratt speaks from deep reservoirs of prayer and tender intimacy with pain. She leads us through the fire and calls us to pray, laugh, cry, reach out, choose, reflect, and pray some more. A guidebook for all of us who travel on the precarious road of life.” —Betsey Beckman, founder, The Dancing Word (www.thedancingword.com)
“In Don’t Panic! Maureen Pratt offers a beautifully written and much appreciated consoling voice that integrates spiritual, psychological, relational, and behavioral insights to help those who are struggling and may be in the dark night of the soul. She journeys with the reader as a spiritual friend and trusted mentor. Her compelling book will be a cool and refreshing drink for the thirsty reader.” —Thomas G. Plante, PhD, ABPP is the Augustin Cardinal Bea, S.J. University Professor and Director of the Spirituality and Health Institute at Santa Clara University
“Maureen Pratt is an inspiring writer who goes when the going is tough! Whenever I feel that I have it tough, I consider people like Maureen, who keep their cool in spite of adversity and fearlessly strive for life’s best. Whether reporting someone else’s, or sharing her own wisdom, she never fails to deliver!” — John Feister, editor in chief, St. Anthony Messenger magazine
“This is not just another self-help book. Drawing on a deepening spirituality in dealing with her own life-shattering crises, Maureen Pratt focuses on how she’s lived her ordinary life, centered on an awareness of God’s active presence, and how it has prepared her to survive and thrive in the midst of crisis. Learning from her wisdom and experience is something like fastening your seatbelt when driving. You may ordinarily get by without it, but when you need it, it can mean the difference between life and death. Maureen’s is a wonderful story that we all can enjoy and take to heart.” —Fr. Tom Welbers, a retired priest in the archdiocese of Los Angeles
“Don’t Panic! is the perfect name for a book so needed today. Maureen Pratt has a lovely and soothing writing voice that instills encouragement, faith-filled hope, and practical ways to manage the intense stresses we face. Are you having a tough time? You’ll be glad you picked up this book!” —Angela Breidenbach, president, Christian Authors Network

If we are not gifted with a strong faith in God, a keen sense of self awareness, perhaps a family that supports us, a few solid all weather friends, or resources to assist us, hope fades quickly. The personal toll piles high and deep without beneficial outlets and re-directed focus. Maureen provides these alternatives with humor and joy embedded in a brilliance of usefulness and truth, and taps into that abiding light of God that dwells at our very core, the ultimate source of our strength.
In a culture of immediacy, most frequently bounced off the instant springboard of emotions, short lived and flawed solutions are usually first-fruits. Maureen, however, taps into the better part of us, the deeper part that can, with the grace of God, and guided disciplines, persevere through the tough times, better for wear, and become advocates to and beacons of perspective and hope for all the others we will encounter who arrive in the wake of our trial laden pathways needing guidance and support for their journeys. God gave Noah plans. And so Maureen gives us this fine blueprint in "Don't Panic !" building upon each successive chapter for an invaluable lifelong reference from which to sustain a more permanent and practical response to the crises and tough times of our lives.
Looking forward to her next book!
This is a sensible guide for anyone struggling in life. It is well written and easy to follow.
The title and cover give the impression that this is a book “for _anyone_ who needs help discovering the spiritual strength and heroic qualities within” (from the posted description, with emphasis added). This is not entirely true.
The author has her own particular religious orientation, which may work very well if you share it. If you do not, other books may be a better fit for you. Suggest thoroughly exploring the “Look Inside” free preview before making a decision to purchase.
