I love the book so MUCH!!! I got it for Christmas this year (2012) and I love how the author states that you can ignore or revise things to fit you!!! A must have for folks who are good with their imagination and those who love a good book that's playful and long lasting!!!:))))))))))))
This book is catered to anyone who wants to get more out of life (everyone). Barry shows us simple ways that we've all forgotten to stay present in the life we live. Completing her workbook-of-sorts strengthened my life in a simple but priceless way.
