I found this book personally transforming. As a type "A" workaholic with two small, very active boys and a job requiring ceaseless time and attention, I needed to address the constant sense of guilt and exhaustion that came with the daily choices and tradeoffs. I was also recently promoted and needed to gain some footing and build relationships among my new peers - who were primarily men. This created a considerable amount of anxiety for me as well.
The exercises and meditations in this book were exactly what I needed at this point.
I am predisposed to an appreciation for Buddhist text and was especially pleased with one that wasn’t entirely focused on women, but certainly provided considerable spotlight on their particular needs.
After finishing my first listen, I felt a sense of peace and relaxation that I have spent of considerable time and energy seeking. I have a feeling I will burn a hole in my MP3 player listening to it over and over again.
I also just purchased another audio book by the same author.
