Format: Hardcover
This book is incredibly uplifting in spirit! When you look at it, the pictures soothe your soul. You truly want to be in the picture. I had heard this about Thomas Kinkade's work. The true bonus for me with this book is the writing. It is as clear and true and inviting as the artwork depicted on its pages. Mr. Kinkade gently and beautifully reminds us to contemplate and practice what is truly most important in our lives. Each time I open this book to read and view its pages, it brings literal tears to my eyes, there is that much Truth and beauty in it which caresses my being. My gratitude and blessings go to the creators of this true work of art.

Format: Hardcover
Thomas Kincade makes you believe that "simpler times" are within reach for each of us! Not a vision from the past, but an attainable goal even in our frenetic modern world!
Kincade gives practical suggestions from lessons he's learned in his own life: setting priorities, learning to say 'no', slowing down, creating your own private retreat.
And throughout Kincade's heart-warming narrative, flows a peaceful, gentle stream of his artwork. Paintings that capture the essence of nature & draw you into its beauty.
Withdraw to your own private retreat & take "Simpler Times" with you!

At the college I work at I teach classes on personal development and stress management through hardiness training. Recently, in class, we were discussing whether it is possible to experience joy when in the midst of challenges and trials. Through beautiful artwork and inspired narrative in "Simpler Times," Mr. Kinkade demonstrates how one can experience peace and joy in a hectic world. The book was like food for my soul. Thank you.

When my work days start to overwhelm me, glancing at a few pages from this work of art help me to gain perspective again. Mr. Kincaids paintings alone have the ability to sooth and calm, but his text adds even more to his message of joy, hope, and learning to find your own "retreat" to reflect and slow your life down a bit. I love this book.

Reading this book is a beautiful, serene experience. It really helps you to prioritize the things in your life, which leads to a more peaceful relaxed atmosphere for you and those around you. It really helped me to put things in perspective. Just the pictures alone create a peacefulness; add that to the text, and you have got one awesome book.

I first saw Tomas Kinkades work at a gallery in Port Jefferson Long Island. They were set in special rooms with typical individual lights for each piece. There were dimmer switches in the room that we were able to control the lighting, enhancing the effects. The paintings actually came alive with light as I dimmed the house lights. I'm not in the position to afford his work but with this book I'm at least able to enjoy the experience. The book is so good you can see the brush strokes and even the bumps in the canvas It's not as good as the real thing although it dose tease your senses. So sit back. Put on some soothing music and live the experience.

I bought this book 2 years ago, as a reward for myself. It's so beautiful and tranquil that reminded me of the simpler time is really what I want.
