Professional reviews

"Nepo has assembled a book of daily affirmations informed by his struggle with cancer and the insights he gained during that experience. His language tends toward the flowery, and his tone is upbeat. He presents each affirmation clearly and earnestly and then introduces a suggested topic for meditation for the day. Those who enjoy starting or ending their day with a moment of reflection and short meditation may find using an audiobook for that purpose to be useful. Browsing through the book or turning to entries randomly while still maintaining a daily discipline may also be workable. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
