The best book I've read in several years. Lyrical, rich, realistic prose; interesting, iconoclastic characters; timeless themes of emotional failings, love, redemption, addiction, family, adolescence, aging, culture. This is a complete book - I put it down feeling nothing was lacking. ~ Chris Morrow

Another great dharma book from Pema! She is just a master at taking somewhat arcane Buddhist teachings and putting them into plain English. This is a perfect book for people who have already been introduces to meditation a little and are exploring the path forward. Can't miss. ~ Reviewed by Chris Morrow

What a fun read! Lehane has written a great gangster novel. Taking a character out of Given Day and sending him off to Florida during prohibition leads to a visceral, energetic and engrossing novel of crime, passion, betrayal and booze. Lehane is a master. ~ Reviewed by Chris Morrow
