It's the nature of things to change, Pema tells us, "and you don't have to freak out about it." Said another way, that might take a book's worth of observation and explication. The reader should come to this collection aware that it is a sampling, a distillation. Some of the teachings are complex; some of the students are not ready; times change, receptiveness matures. Pema wouldn't tell you to "abandon hope," if it were not good for you, so be willing to learn more about that, if it seems at odds with your expectations. Start here, and then use the references to read further.
You can randomly flip to any page and there will be something that will apply to you--in a gentle, clear, kind way.
Chodron writes in such a simple, understandable, plain-English way, and makes you feel like you're not the only one suffering.
Her carefully chosen, beautifully written words offer encouragement when you most need it.
This book makes a thoughtful present--to yourself as well as to others!
There's also a nice excerpt from the Pocket Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche which seems really excellent as well.
