Sinossi

There's a fresh take on an old standby, the book of quotations. The difference with Wisdom for the Soul is in the selection and organization of the quotations. Each has been chosen for its universal application and poetic quality, grouped into one of 220 themes. While the usual subjects, are represented, the collection encompasses newer psychological territory such as Actualization, Avoidance/Denial, Chaos/Uncertainty, Polarity, Synergy, Unconscious, and more. Although the primary aim of the collection is self-help for the individual, with extensive cross-references to factors that foster or deter growth and well-being, the material will appeal to the quotation collector, speech-writer, and the general reader. 824 pages

5.0 su 5 stelle wow--and I mean WOW! 15 dicembre 2006
Di swandiver - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina rigida
First let me say that I have spent the last several years reading close to 3,000 books in a sort of spiritual journey/quest for "enlightenment" (whatever that means, and assuming there is is such a thing.) I've read just about all the great "classic" works--everything by Plato and Jesus, tons by Buddha, along with mega-amounts of ancient and modern philosophers and thinkers, both Eastern and Western, etc. that I could get my hands on. Yet this book has managed to astound me. It's close to 800 pages, and huge. Unless you go on a non-stop reading binge for a couple days, you'll take weeks to read this entire thing. Which is just fine, because on almost *every* page there is a quote that either (a) helps me see something from a perspective I haven't quite encountered before, or (b) expresses a thought i've already encountered, but expresses it in a way that is so pithy and fresh and memorable that I want to run out and share it with the people I know (and in some cases I've done just that!). And then you will want to read it again. And again. And again . . .

The book is very well organized. Each chapter covers from between 1 to 7 pages or so of a different topic--e.g. "compassion"-- with quotes arranged in roughly chronological order of the year of the person being quoted. The headings to each chapter have extensive cross-references so that the reader can look up related entries, either similar concepts or opposite concepts. An extensive bibliography at the back lists all the entries in which each author appears. One minor gripe I have is that the source of the quotes is not as well documented as it could have been. Some of the quotes have specific works listed, but many do not, so that (a) the reader is left merely to trust that the compiler is correct in quoting from that speaker, and (b) the reader has no way to read further in the work quoted. Still, wisdom is wisdom, and even if there is no way to verify who said what, an anonymous truth found on a crumpled up piece of paper on the street is still truth!

Also, the reader might think of a topic or two that should have been given a separate entry but wasn't (e.g. there is no entry for "beauty" which in my mind is essential for a book on "spiritual wisdom.") But still the entries are fairly exhaustive in their coverage overall.

One other minor gripe is that the author focuses much more on modern (1800s and especially 1900's) thinkers than on ancient wisdom. People like Plato, Aristotle, Jesus, or Buddha for example (all of whom I'm quite familiar with their work), could have, and should have been, quoted much more extensively than they were, especially when numerous modern, very recent authors were given far more quotes than any of them. Still, as I said above, truth is truth, regardless who says that truth.

This is a reference book that you will keep not just on your shelf, but on your coffeetable or nightstand, for easy access, and perhaps permanently. And you will enthusiastically recommend it to everyone you know. And you will loan it out. And you will buy it as a gift for people. In fact, if I the money, I'd buy a copy and give one to all my family and friends--but alas, I don't have such money. Probably because the book is so huge in volume, a cloth (hard) binding is very helpful to keep the book's integrity intact. Nevertheless, I hope this book is released in a less expensive paperback form soon. Either way, though, this book is well worth the price (and probably more). You will *not* regret buying this!

5.0 su 5 stelle This book is like having a council of wise people from five millenia in your home to offer you life-transforming wisdom 18 luglio 2006
Di C. Johnson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina rigida
I can't speak highly enough of the riches contained in this book - an extraordinary treasury, containing potent seeds of life-enriching wisdom, highly compactified, fructifying patterns of intelligence. This book creates a direct line of communication with the quintessential wisdom of the world's greatest minds and spiritual traditions.

Each time I open the book there are messages of wisdom that feel uncannily perfect for me, addressing current situations and concerns. And because the author has consciously selected quotes that speak to the potential within the individual, they stimulate the wisdom that lies dormant within us, resonating with the seeds that are already there. Each time I read the selection of quotes on any given subject, I walk away feeling empowered and inspired.

It's quite extraordinary when one thinks of the transmission of these seeds of wisdom, which take root and create positive "fruits of the spirit." It's like having an entire council of wise elders at one's fingertip, available for powerfully transforming advice at every moment.

This is one of the best investments of $50 I can imagine. This is a book that everyone should own as a life-long reference, no matter what age or point in one's life journey. I plan to give it to my nephew for his high school graduation, knowing it will provide guidance for him as he embarks on his own. And it's a wonderful resource for finding meaningful quotes to share with friends.

5.0 su 5 stelle An incredible wellspring of wisdom 10 marzo 2010
Di Lauren Rosenfeld - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina rigida
I really can't say enough good things about this volume. Larry Chang has pulled together wisdom from across cultures and eras to present us with a magnificent road map for life's journey. Not only is the compilation of quotes a stunning piece of work in itself, but it's organization by category makes it so easy to access the wisdom you need at just the moment when you need it. I have this book out on my coffee table and I pick it up at least once a day, just to flip it open and see what enticing piece of sage advice from the ages I might find. I also turn to it when I am personally in need of particular support, or when I need to offer wisdom to a friend in need. The book is an incredible work of scholarship and insight, and one senses intuitively the editor's desire to support the reader in accessing their own wisdom. I have recommended this book to many people. You will use it frequently and it's contents are timeless. It's well worth every penny.

1.0 su 5 stelle Review of the Kindle Version 10 agosto 2013
Di cerebralauthor - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
Sorry to all who wrote great reviews for this book but I had to speak out. Looks like I am the first one here who got the Kindle version. This may be a wonderful book but I may never know it since the Kindle version does not have a working TOC!!! What is worse, this (non-working) TOC has Page numbers listed next to the different sections - but they are... WRONG! If you try to go to the indicated page number, using the Go To function (there is no other way), you will get... someplace else. Hard to believe, but a fact.

I emailed the publisher more than 2 months ago to let them know all this but they never responded... I think the publishers have let this author down. You can NOT charge $30 for a Kindle book without a working TOC! Everyone who owns Kindle books, especially a humongous reference book like this, knows that the lack of a working TOC makes a book completely unusable. Not just inconvenient but unusable. There are other glitches in this book, for example, if you happen to go through the pages backwards, the book skips the section headings so you don't see them and have no idea that you've crossed over to a different section! (which does not happen if you "leaf through" the book FORWARD).

Since I have already shelled the money and can't return the book at this point, I went through the whole book and wrote down the Location number for each of the Sections. It took one tedious hour. Pasting it here for all to benefit and be able to use this book.

I'll let this review stand until the publishers respond, and make an update with a working TOC. Nowadays buyers get automatic updates of any revised Kindle book, so there is nothing easier than fixing the TOC, and distributing the update to all who have given you their hard-earned cash!

If this review has been useful, or if my Locations Table has helped you bring the book back to life, please click on the Thumbs Up. Thank you!
