Don't Sweat the Small Stuff, and It's All Small Stuff
Many years ago I had a friend, it was before the days of e-mail so we wrote to each other frequently. Imagine that. I don't even spend time writing to my friends now even though the letters would go instantly. The downside of the web is that when I sit down in front of the computer I spend hours reading useless stuff and not enough time writing to people that I care about. I'll have to change that.
In that time of writing though she sent me this book. I devoured it. Before this book I had read the Tao of Pooh and the Tao Te Ching and this book fit right in with that philosophy. I love the ideas in the book, see the glass as already broken, see the innocence in other people's behavior, spend time to thank someone today.
I'd say that not only is this book worth a read but it's worth a read and worth time to put into practice.
