Editorial Reviews


 "Verdict: A solid reminder to enjoy the life we've been given. Highly Recommended." -- Library Journal Starred Review

"I love this book! Danny has written a masterpiece on the art and science of acceptance, revealing the paradoxical relationship between true acceptance and transformation--the key to serenity,vitality, clarity, love, joy, and wisdom. This is truly a gift to anyone who takes the time to read the precious words within this little book."
--Joseph Bailey, psychologist and author of The Serenity Principle, Slowing Down to the Speed of Life, andother books

"The common challenges to acceptance, from one's parents to setbacks and failure, are each profiled in chapters that use case histories and author experiences to illustrate the predicament and the contrast between controlling and accepting behavior patterns. The result is an informational title packed with strategies, tools, and tips for negotiating ups and downs with a new paradigm for living a better life."
--D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
"It's a pleasure to have read Miller's book on acceptance,a theme that is very close to my heart. I have been in long-term recovery, in both Al-Anon and AA, for more than four decades, and being willing to accept those people and situations over which I have no control is necessary to my peace of mind. Miller's book is absolutely key to both the understanding of acceptance and how to flourish within the confines of relationships that snag our ego.
         "I highly recommend this book to those who find they struggle to simply 'let people be.'"
--Karen Casey, PhD, author of numerous books on women's spirituality and related topics (
"Daniel Miller shows us how acceptance is thefirst step toward peace. If you dwell on what you want to change about others and feel weighed down by anger, fear, and resentment, The Gifts of Acceptance can help set you free."
--Lori Deschene, author of Tiny Buddha's Gratitude Journal, Tiny Buddha's Worry Journal, and other books (
"If you think you know what acceptance means, think again. In his latest book, Danny Miller has put a lot of research and thought into this deceptively simple yet powerful concept. He breaks down the myths and gifts of this approach to life and provides you with practical self-inquiries and 'acceptance intentions,' as well as real-life examples to help you handle every type of difficult relationship and circumstance with greater peace and serenity. Valuable as a reference guide, especially for the chapters on dealing with foes and crazy makers--and yourself! You will keep reaching for The Gifts of Acceptance as one of the 12-step staples in your library."
--Nijole Sparkis, spiritual coach and host of the Heal the Shadow in Your Relationships series

About the Author

Like most compulsive controllers, Danny was always driven to succeed. He graduated from UCLA with honors in business administration and finished in the top 5 percent of his class at the UCLA School of Law. 
While still in his twenties, he became a popular real estate instructor in the UCLA extension program, and in his thirties he wrote a critically acclaimed, best-selling professional book, How to Invest in Real Estate Syndicates (DowJones-Irwin, 1978). 
Financial success came early to Danny. Celebrities and other wealthy people entrusted him with large sums to invest on their behalf. By his midthirties he could afford to live in the exclusive Old Bel Air section of Los Angeles. 
But for all his achievements and success, Danny had no sense of inner peace and serenity. He was imprisoned by his fears, anger, and anxieties--all bedfellows of controllers--and thus not open to the joy and wonders all around him. 
After suffering aseries of traumatic events and financial setbacks that he could not control--no matter how hard he tried--he finally began a new life journey based on letting go of control and accepting people and things as they are. He surrendered to the ups and downs and twists and turns of life instead of resisting them and trying to control people and events. 
 In the process, he became an artist, a published poet, a successful businessman, a champion seniors tennis player, a happily married man, and a much wiser parent.
Thus, through letting go of control and embracing life as it is, Danny found a different and more gratifying kind of success--an internal, core sense of well-being. He now writes and speaks about the profound benefits of letting go of control and practicing acceptance. His website features over seventy of his blog posts on the control and acceptance dynamics, his poetry and paintings, and keynote speaker information.
