I loved this book. I had planned to read just a few pages and found myself unable to put it down. Get this book today and start to rethink your life! The author's simple message is wonderfully clear and engaging.

The author synthesizes good advice from around the world and simplifies it so that even the least "peaceful" can take away surprisingly overlooked bits of wisdom. For me, the real eyeopener was the section on anger. Thanks for this book, it is wonderful!

Tuning in to Inner Peace has helped me change my perspective and calm my nerves. The first chapter is about inner peace and how outwardly obvious it is to others. It's reflected in your mood and how you relate. This seems obvious to me now that I've read the book but it didn't dawn on me that any inner conflict I have is so outwardly noticeable. Now that I recognize this i have empathy and more understanding of where the crazy angry person next to me is coming from and how to deal with it. I also am more aware of my own "inner peace", or lack thereof, and how it effects others. This is just one of the things I learned in the first 10 pages. I cant wait to read the entire book. I imagine it will become a reference for me that I can reach for in moments of stress or when I need some inspiration. I highly recommend this book!

This was a very beautiful and wise little book! It contains 29 short but profound topic discussions and is written in an accessible, light hearted way. The author drives home the point that little changes in perception and thinking can have a huge impact on our lives. I want to take the time to go back through the book slowly and work on the exercises that go along with each lesson. My first inclination was to say that "I need to" do this but as I learned in the book using "I want" instills a more positive feeling. I have been practicing that lesson this week. For example I have been deciding what "I choose" to do today, instead of thinking about what "I need" to do.

I love that this book was written from the perspective of someone who lived a fairly typical Western lifestyle up to a point then made changes based on her own experiences and growth. I am excited to expand my reading list to include some of the unknown-to-me authors that she recommends, and I am very excited to see her recommendation for Thich Nhat Hanh. This was a lovely little book that I will recommend that my friends and family read.
