Top customer reviews
Beyond the healing uplift of hard-won wisdom, she offers practical, upbeat tips. “The single most essential ingredient for your very best life is the unrelenting willingness to keep starting again.”
With a down-to-earth approach (“I used to be totally annoyed that it takes so much work to be me”), “The Hungry Ghost” delivers reassurance and inspiration in a warm, empathetic voice: “I discovered that when I let go of the happy-all-the-time dream, I found the I'm-okay-no-matter-what reality.”
Easy to read and woven with writing exercises, affirmations and tips, the book includes helpful resources such as websites, books, meditation downloads and prayers. “Believe in the big pie,” says Edelman. Her book will help you believe in that abundant pie, hope and yourself.
The author shares practical tools that work in the real world. I especially liked the "try this" boxes and inspirational quotes. The book is a treasure of wisdom gleaned from the author's experiences. I keep this book close to where I eat to be reminded daily to treat myself and others loving kindness.
