I recommend just reading one of her teachings a night as there is so much wisdom in these pages, its just easier to digest at a slower pace. I would love to read this book again, but I saw an interview with Beck somewhere whee she told the interviewer not to read her books twice, and instead practice! Either way, this book is great, easy to read, and contains page after page of interesting teachings.
