Free Thinking : On Happiness, Emotional Intelligence, Relationships, Power and Spirit
Allen and Unwin, 2004. A fine, unmarked copy that presents as brand new.
Stephanie Dowrick is widely known for her much loved No 1 bestsellers Intimacy & Solitude, The Universal Heart and Forgiveness and Other Acts of Love. Here she roves more widely (and writes more personally) than ever before. In chapters short enough to enjoy in a single reading, she offers her views on subjects as various as how to worry less and praise more what happiness is - and how to achieve it why and how to meditate when and whether to marry why doubt can be useful and how burnout can be avoided. She also speaks persuasively for honesty, tolerance and peace in a world where those vital qualities can seem in short supply. And - most wonderfully - she inspires greater joy in living, based on a contagious appreciation of this awesome world we share.
