Book Review - Taken from the Amazon Order Page

Turn off that inner critic, February 6, 2013
                                                                         By Wordsmith "Tough Critic" (S. CA)
This review is from: Go Only As Fast As Your Slowest Part Feels Safe To Go: Tales To Kindle Gentleness and Compassion For Our Exhausted Selves (Paperback)
If you're tired of New Age doctrine, or self-improvement for dummies, here's a book that takes you in a different direction - it supports your right to transform your inner critic into gentle and caring self acceptance. The author offers nuggets of wisdom gleaned from her own history as well as decades of professional practice. Her belief in self-nurturing is backed by personal stories that many people (women in particular) will relate to - stories of not being "good enough," of aiming for goals that were not really relevant, of counting on cultural myths instead of innate instincts. Whether you read it through from cover to cover, or taste different sections, or perhaps use the book as an oracle by opening to a section at random, you'll find pithy guidance illustrated by the tale that inspired it. For example, I turned to this one: "When change is moving quickly in your life...try living in the thinnest slice of now you can define!" Never trite, never dogmatic, this book is a reflection of its author's intelligence and deep understanding of issues many of us have been grappling with for a lifetime.
