From India to Iceland, Betty's wanderlust is fascinating to follow as it is the exterior manifestation of a soul in full flight, always seeking to understand and appreciate those around her. There is no pretention,no judgement of others, but rather lots of thoughtful observation and questions as she builds on being a mother and businesswoman into being a student of the human condition, aided by various spiritual leaders such as the Brama Kamaris of Mount Abu, India. Her foundation brings her into direct contact with the disenfranchised of the world,and instead of dispair she finds hope and dignity, one person making a difference one village water well or lunch program at a time.
This is a book for people who are aware that there is infinately more potential to life than accepting one's fate in one corner of the world, and that through compassion, curiosity and commitment, one person can not only make a big difference, but also self actualize and achieve what every one of us are looking for in our lives... inner peace. I have the privilege of knowing Betty Steinhauer personally, and this book is really a roadmap of her own successful journey looking for inner peace, a state she has achieved after following countless roads and relationships and taking what was best from each one of them. For this reason alone, "My Way" is well worth the read... it is a remarkable tale that is well written, very easy to read, and will more than once make the reader feel the joy that comes with triumph over adversity.
Her encounters and relationships with the famous and near-famous are just fragments of what you'll find in her fast paced newly-published memoir My Way. Many of them are anonymous, or may appear under pseudonyms.
For her title she has, of course, taken a page from the Old Blue Eyes songbook, but there's more than a little of Kenny Rogers there too: "The best you can hope for is to die in your sleep."
I met Betty about five years ago, and our paths have crossed a number of times since. My initial sense was that this was one interesting lady, but reading My Way has shown me a whole lot more. She's clearly a free spirit, with enough self-confidence to jump into the deep end without any shadow of doubt that she'll resurface.
The story of her many and often-complicated relationships with men and with spirituality - that have taken her from her Toronto home many times around the world - combined with her business and charitable ventures are quite a fascinating read. Her adventures from mountain tops in India to a seaside summer house in Newfoundland (where I met her) have been an exciting journey indeed.
This is not a travel book; it's more about her spiritual and emotional journeys than the physical places she has been. But it's a fun read, and proof that you don't need to be a celebrity to tell a very interesting tale.
