From Publishers Weekly
Her spare prose a mute rebuke to the anecdotal loquaciousness of many self-help books on the spiritual life, Silf aims to help her readers craft thoughtful decisions in a world in which options seem endless and decisions pressing. Stringing her sentences out like scavenger hunt clues in a white landscape, the British author of The Gift of Prayer, Wayfaring and other explorations of spirituality divides her book into five sections on such topics as how to figure out which choices are truly necessary, how to choose with integrity and how to follow up on a decision once made. The slim book is peppered with practical advice, as when Silf advises her readers to avoid the "if-onlys" "what-ifs" and "might-have beens" that often get in the way of decision making. In a particularly helpful segment, Silf includes several discernment tests readers can use to predict the potential consequences of a decision. Some of her longtime fans may be frustrated by the format, lack of illustrations and dearth of overtly Christian content, but they will not be surprised by her commitment to decision making that is careful, forward looking and informed by a sense of responsibility to oneself and to the world. (Apr.)

"...(remember) that in everything we do,
at every fork in the road of our journey through life,
however large or small,
we have a choice...
The choice is always about "which way forward",
and it always begins right where we are."
This is another wonderful Margaret Silf book on spirituality
and spiritual direction. Highly recommended!
Wise Choices helps decide which decisions are important, slay nagging doubts and feel confident to trust our own minds. The author writes: "Tuition is something we are given from the outside...Intuition is something that dwells within us--an inner wisdom that prompts us gently about the right course to pursue, the better reaction to a situation." The book also suggests ways to follow through once a decision is made. This is her fourth inspirational book about silencing the outside world and finding inner solace.
