This book is about as well-made as a book
can be. The cover design is laminated onto this hardbound book.
The binding is sewn, so it lays open easily and won't crack or
fall apart, even after years of hard use.
And this book was designed to be used.
It is made to be referred to again and again when you need some
counsel. When you're feeling blue or tired or at the end of your
rope, or when you need a boost or just want to feel better, reach
for this book. It is easy, enjoyable reading and the chapters
are brief. Each of the chapters (there are over a hundred) ends
with a simply-stated principle you can apply.
Since the things we learn are not etched
in stone but stored in a gooey organ, an organ we use every day,
it's important to not only learn good ideas, but to be reminded
of them when we need them. Otherwise, the incoming information
we are bombarded with every day tends to push the things we "know"
into the back of our minds, and, while it is not forgotten, it
is hard to remember when we need it. Most
of the chapters are short enough to read in five minutes or less,
and at the end of that five minutes, you'll come away with a
technique you can use to improve either your situation or your
attitude toward it. Read
