    1. Mediocre to the core. Loving the ending part written by Sylvia Boorstein. She made my day. Enjoy reading her meditation experience, hilarious! Accepting the suffering as we need suffering to strengthen us and get us to the next step. Suffering is just your way of digesting a new phase in your life. This is just what you do: you go all to pieces, then you pick yourself up and you go forward. A big reorganization, which is always painful. Often suffering is needed for reorganization. We're stronge [...]

    2. This book helped me get through the first three months of the year- which are always difficult for me. I have a yet-undiagnosed seasonal affective disorder.I absolutely love Sylvia Boorstein- but she only wrote the last third of the book. I appreciated the contributions of the other authors as well- but they should be listed along with her as authors! I thought I was going to get all Sylvia all the time. Anyway- like "Happiness is an Inside Job" and "It's Easier than You Think," I'm going to be [...]

    3. This wonderful book comprises of just three chapters, one each from renowned Buddhism teachers Sylvia Boorstein, Norman Fischer and Tsokyni Rinpoche. Each contribution provides great insights and teachings about how we can face the sufferings in our lives with equanimity, mindfulness, loving kindness and meditation.

    4. This rather slender volume contains three sections, each authored by a contemporary Buddhist teacher: Norman Fischer, trained in the Zen tradition; Tsoknyi Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist tulku; and Sylvia Boorstein, a Theravadan teacher. Each teacher brings a different, refreshing perspective to the teachings of the Buddha. A good book to give to someone new to Buddhism.

    5. There are three essays in this collection. I enjoyed the one by Norman Fischer which was about Alan Lew, one of my favorite people. Sylvia Boorstein's essay was also great as always. But I found the one by Tsoknyi Rinpoche didactic and judgmental. Two out of three is very good and this is still a great collection.

    6. Loved Sylvia Boorstein's section so much I purchased more of her books. Offers practical advice that helped me find opportunities to practice during some recent challenges. Was sad when I reached the end. A very easy read for all (Buddhists and non-Buddhists).
