After Nepo beat cancer more than two decades ago, he was compelled to share his first-hand knowledge of the necessity of acceptance and surrender in the face of life’s challenges. In Finding Inner Courage, Nepo attempts to connect his philosophy in the face of adversity to the definition of courage. In his view, acceptance and surrender don’t mean “giving up”, but “standing by one’s core”, even in the face of fear. The warmth and welcome in his voice convey the inner strength he has developed over a lifetime of facing fears, learning from mistakes, and continually acknowledging that there are no shortcuts to living an examined life.

Mark Nepo is a beloved teacher, poet, and storyteller. In this book he invites us to live from our inner core in ways small and large, every day. That is all we can do in life, and all we need for our lives to bear witness and contribute, to make the world a better place. To listen to the stories in this book is to find our own place of courage and peace.

I tried to like this. I listened to it from beginning to end, wanting to like it. The whole book felt like the author was trying desperately to find some deep message in everything that happens in life. It felt forced and not at all inspiring. When he related a dream where a 10 year old boy was thrilled to get a desk drawer to play with as a dollhouse and used paper clips as dolls, I gave up any hope that there was a point or message in this book....On the upside, the author did a nice job with the reading. But I will never waste my time with another of his books....
