I am an older (64) counseling/industrial/ organizational psychologist and currently specialize is exceutive coaching. Books like this help me create and sustain the most fulfilling work I have ever done.
The book is simply three short mediations on solitude, action and community. I have read it many times, given it to my children and family, and highly recommend it to all who need to pause in the midst of life to focus on what their life is all about. I will use it this year at a retreat for men in April.
A few other books I currently recommend to clients and friends along with Out of Solitude are: Let Your Life Speak by Parker Palmer; The Power of Now by Ekhart Tolle; and Stopping by David Kundtz.
Nouwen was a gifted priest, healer, and shining light of faith, hope and love in a time of confusing worldwide transitions. He will be missed and he left a great legacy.

He emphasises the need for individuals to have high self-esteem and to appreciate the benefits of detachment from the world (i.e. solitude). The importance of caring for others which includes sharing the pain and joy of others.
I found the book easy to read and very much to the point.
The abrupt ending left me with a sense of wanting.
Wanting to find more about this inner place.
I've liked to find more about how to get there particularly when my life is surrounded by noise.
I also have the wanting to search for answers to the questions that were triggered by concept of “the lonely place”, to find an reasonable “ending” of what was truncated.
