"With the challenge of managing her own busy life as a backdrop, author and televangelist Joyce Meyer offers a potpourri of advice, principles, and aphorisms on reducing life's unnecessary complications. She ties much of her wisdom to quotes from the Bible or historical figures; her smartness and influence lie in her ability to make her 100 methods sound both comfortably familiar and startlingly new. Though she's a biblical literalist, what's prominent is not her Christian foundations but her hard-won grasp of the human condition--our frailties, self-deception, social insecurities, self-doubt, and lack of conviction. With the help of narrator Sandra McCollom's steady, understated delivery, this is guidance one can use every day to reduce the clutter and confusion in our attitudes, relationships, and daily pursuits.
