Book Review: The Book of Awakening

Mark Nepo’s The Book of Awakening is full of insight. He provides small doses of what really matters, simple truths, and stories for everyday lives. There is an entry for every day starting off with a quote and ending with a list of steps to incorporate the day’s theme into your life.

Many of Nepo’s entries are based on his personal experiences. This creates an intimate environment which allows the book to become your companion, as well as becoming a part of Nepo’s life.

Because of its daily format, it is a great holiday present for a loved one that they can read next year, finding inspiration and wisdom every day. There is also a subject index, so you can look at specific topics when you need a little extra advice.
