5.0 out of 5 stars Re-thinkng Original Sin, June 10, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is a gift. It reminded me how and why I am filled with hope. I read it twice.

The thing that has stayed with me was Krista's definition of original sin: "Maybe this is another way to think about original sin— the ingrained lure of the possibility of going numb, a habit of acquiescence to it. It takes forms profound and banal. It is there in the way I am itching, with each sentence on this page, to heed the background call of technology and head down a rabbit hole of distraction that will scatter my ability to follow this line of reflection to the end."

We all suffer this way. This book is an example of what is possible if we are able to stick with hard things and keep our hearts open. It is Krista's view of wisdom shown whole and illustrated with many fragments of conversation gathered over 15 years of extraordinary inquiry and conversation. Having been along for the ride (listening to Krista weekly over this time), I especially enjoyed the audio version which includes the voices of those interviewed.

This comes at a perfect time. Too many of our public conversations seek to divide and diminish us. Here is a lovely and robust alternative. It is worth reading more than once.

5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome alternative to today's fractious civil discourse, February 4, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a wonderful book about the power of inquiry. At a time of ever more strident opinions and deteriorating civic discourse, this is a hopeful and much more productive alternative.

2.0 out of 5 stars This is a great product when it is working, November 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great product when it is working. It was recommended by my trainer and really does the job. Unfortunately, I have gone through two of them and both have broken after only a few days in the field. I am hoping that I have just been unlucky because the collar really helps when hunting a pointer in heavy cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product, October 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These things have changed my life. I never use my foam roller anymore. The video that Jill Miller and Kelly Starrett did to show how to use them for full benefit is also great. They have radically reduced my recovery and repair time and have allowed me to take matters more into my own hands. What a great investment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gamechanger, February 6, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book changed my life. It has helped me to get much clearer about my relationships and has helped me to take action in situations that previously left me befuddled. I have given it to several friends and I read it every year. Its truth is so clear and so simple that it should be easier to digest.
