Library Journal Review

A syndicated columnist and contributor to the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series, Cohen has long been associated with the Unity churches, and the publisher hopes that this volume will mark the beginning of a long and happy partnership. For the most part, Cohen's wisdoms are easily recognizable nuggets of spiritual insight concerning self-nurture and the surprises of enlightenment in daily life. But he writes effectively and engagingly, and his notions include believers and doubters of all sorts. For most collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
