Maggie Callanan Coauthor of Final Gifts A tender read I highly recommend. The Four Things That Matter Most offers simple but solid solutions for healing our complex and fragile relationships -- wisdom that will surely enrich our lives.
Larry Dossey, M.D. Author of Healing Beyond the Body, Reinventing Medicine, and Healing Words For anyone who believes that years of therapy are required for transforming relationships with others, this book will come as a pleasant surprise. Great wisdom has always been simple -- that is why it is elusive -- and great wisdom is what this book contains.

This book is so basic yet so powerful at the same time. Sometimes it really is the little things that end up being the biggest things.
This books helped give me perspective and fueled me to continue on my happiness journey. I have ready many more books since this one but it's so interesting to look back and know how everything started. I highly recommend you read this book, sometime when you are not distracted and can give it your full attention. You'll be glad you did.
I forgive you.
I love you.
What is the connection between these simple statements and profound moments of grace? I didn't understand it myself until reading "The Things That Matter Most: A Book About Living." The author is Dr. Ira Byock, a physician who focuses on end-of-life care for his patients and their families. As he recounts their personal stories, you'll shake your head with wonder as damaged relationships are transformed and healing takes place when none seemed possible. The message though, is not to withhold these words until the end, but to consciously integrate them into our daily lives.
Fair warning - you'll probably cry while reading this book and, if you're like me, it will tap into regrets long since tucked away. Yet, with it comes a sense of hope that all is not lost. That there is still time to let go of old hurts and say the things that matter most - not just for the benefit of those we love, but for ourselves.
Thank you Dr Byock.
For the readers who are actively on a path to spirituality and are touched by Dr Byock's writing, I would strongly recommend the recent book "Dying to be me - my journey from cancer to near death to true healing" by Anita Moorjani.
