Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy Hardcover – September 9, 2009
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

This book features 366 essays penned from a woman's perspective. Sample topics include gratitude, harmony, self-nurturing, positive body image, the importance of scented linen closets, and many others. Each essay sports a pithy quote from (surprise!) the likes of Kahlil Gibran. Viewed uncritically, it's hard to argue with Simple Abundance's earnest admonitions to appreciate life, in all its messy imperfect excellence. And the fact that serenity and happiness are each in dreadfully short supply can excuse some of the treacly writing. But Breathnach sometimes lapses into what can only be described as her "Martha Stewart on Prozac" voice, and the results are aggravating to the extreme: "If you've been hesitant to strike up a reciprocal relationship with your guardian angel, don't be." Fans of guardian angels will greet these feel-good essays every morning with the rising sun, a cup of mint tea, and a bluebird chirping on the windowsill, and be happy. Skeptics will prefer their coffee very black. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

First purchased this in the 90s and loved it.Super great for women you love to learn more about themselves, like self-improvement books and are just plain worn to a frazzle and need to make life more simple! It has day by day short readings beginning in January. I received mine a few months into the year and read the entire thing all the way through in a few days and restarted it at the correct month. Read the last page of the month first since it has suggestions for things to do in the month. It is spiritual, but not religious. Have read it through many times over the year.
You really need to start with January and most of February and then maybe skip to what time of year you buy the book. Those two months she lays out so many exercises in discovering who you are and ways to live a richer life!
