    (2.5) I’ve read all of Lamott’s nonfiction, and am quite fond of her rambly theological memoirs. Although this is probably one of her two weakest books, her fans will want to read it anyway. The overall theme is a bit loose and the personal anecdotes seem tired and/or thin on the ground, e...

    For me, Anne Lamott's nonfiction books on living in faith (and I don't mean denominational Faith) are not individual volumes but one continuing narrative. I mean this as a compliment. True, some books are slighter than others, either literally or figuratively, but all are needed and welcome. If you'...

    I must admit that this is my first book that I've read by her, but I really, really loved it. It was exactly what I needed to her. This world could definitely use more mercy and kindness....

    Good for a day when you're not feeling very good about yourself. Like today, for me. ...

    Every time Anne Lamott releases a book, it is somehow just what I needed to read. I definitely struggle with forgiving people, and I do fully grasp that the only one hurt by this is me. (People should never be allowed to keep hurting you, and one of the ways they can do that is if you keep dwelling ...

    I generally read anything this author writes but even if I didn't the title in this one made it a must read. This world needs more mercy and compassion, it is I feel sorely lacking. Although I found this offering more scattered, less concentrated than her usual works, some of what she talks about ju...

    I woke up early today, Saturday, and knew exactly what I wanted to do. My husband and 2 dogs were still sleeping. I brewed a pot of coffee and began reading this wonderful book which arrived yesterday. Actually, I ordered 3 because they were so inexpensive on Amazon and thought it only fair to Anne ...

    I gave Anne Lamott a five-star rating mainly because she makes me laugh out loud. And many times. I lover her writing style. I love her personality. I'm not what you might call a progressive Christian. I don't use swear words, a decision I made some time ago because I want my speech to be a blessing...

    Just okay. Maybe me, maybe her, but nothing special about this one....

    Excellent read, as all of hers are. This one was extra special, because I got it as part of my admission to hear her speak in Atlanta. It is signed and has a good message....
