The print version of this book included meditations for each day of the year. In adapting it for audio, Sarah Ban Breathnach reorganizes those meditations into six sections, all of which relate to simplifying one's life and clarifying one's priorities. She reads them over a background of the music she listened to while writing the book. This works well, as does her calm, caring delivery. When she tells a story from her own experience, Breathnach is completely convincing, and one can sense that her compassion is based upon empathy. However, many of the book's examples are specific to women, a choice that may make the work less appealing to male listeners. G.T.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
