Life's Companion is an essential tool to anyone going through life's transitions. I have had it with me since 1991 - ready to use when I needed some help sorting through what I was experiencing. It will never be passe, old stuff - the words are as meaningful and helpful now as they were the first time I used this book. I especially appreciated the right-hand page of journal entries, quotes and exercises. If you have one book on your shelf to nurture your self-growth, it should be this one.
