Em, I first heard of the book here:

Thank you for the recommendation Donald... I went up on line to
and read about the book, read an excerpt and watched a video recording.
This short visit was... that feeling you get when you don't know what's
around the corner, but you need to look some truth in the eye but you're
scared to look because you don't know what the looking will do to you.
I'm a little scared to read the book; I hope to persevere.
