I’m glad this book was written, but I confess I didn’t finish reading it. Given my interest in forgiveness, I’m grateful that related topics like gratitude, thankfulness, resilience, and optimism are being given scientific scrutiny. It’s not the kind of publication that one is likely to read from cover to cover, however, but rather a “pick-up” series of articles, each of which could stand alone. To tell the truth, given the current state of our world, I find it very hopeful that these topics are getting the attention they deserve.

As for rating it, it didn’t seem appropriate even to do so, but given the pressure I chose a rating of 3 as a book to “read.” As a book to “consult” it deserves more.

  1. For me, to choose to “hook into” the very energy of gratitude has the effect to bring my way of feeling – my frequency – way up. Doing it during a bout of anxiety is very very effective. I love to bless: that also has the power to change relationship – inside me, or me and others. Pierre Pradervand has written some wonderful books about the power of blessing – it*s like it melts through the layer of pain and judgment into the place where there is suddenly room for forgiveness
