Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Diane Light has shone light on many of our reasons for being,
in this informational beautifully written book.
I have found the mix of spirituality and psychology a welcome change,
in a world where we have become hungry for information we can wrap our minds around :)
I recommend this book to all.
The workbook elements of the book makes it extremely helpful to laypeople as well as counseling professionals. It is also peppered with great quotations- some literary, some philosophical, several quite whimsical. The material is dense but the tone is light enough to make for a fairly easy and enjoyable read. I truly believe this book has the potential to help a lot of people, and I only hope it acquires the reading audience it merits.
I just saw the HBO movie Game Change about the 2008 election with Sarah Palin and John McCain. As I watched it I couldn't help but think how much that title fits this book, and about how much they could have benefited from what I've been learning!
Reading THIS WAY OUT has given me a whole new way of looking at myself, my situation, my relationships, and other people! It has given me a new pair of eyes, and I can see myself and other people more realistically. That is power! I feel like I have a real opportunity to get what I actually want--to do what I want to do--and to do it all with integrity.
Read this book. It has the power to change you and your world for the better and that is a Game Change we all can applaud!
