Anne Lamott is known for her perceptive and funny writings about spirituality. Readers and listeners of all ages have followed her faith journey through decades of trial and error (sometimes more error than Annie wanted), and in her new book, she has coalesced all she knows about prayer to three essentials: Help, Thanks, and Wow. It is these three prayers - asking for assistance from a higher power, appreciating all that we have and all that is good, and feeling awe at the beauty of the world around us - that can get us through the day and can show us the way forward.
In Help, Thanks, Wow, Anne Lamott recounts how she came to these insights, explains what they mean to her and how they have helped, and explores how others have embraced these same ideas. Insightful, funny and honest, Help, Thanks, Wow is the everyday faith book that new Lamott readers will love and longtime Lamott fans will cherish.

I could and might listen to this several times. I believe that everyone would or could get something out of this little gem!
It is very personal and human.
I didn't really enjoy the author's voice. I might have enjoyed reading the book on my own even more. But the overall message and points were so good that I got over it.
The whole book speaks to the human experience and there was a particularly touching story the author shared about a boy coming to learn about the realities of death and that his mother would likely die before him.
Highly recommend if you are interested in spiritual life, regardless of religious affiliation.
