One reviewer wrote,
"Don't let the apparent simplicity of this volume deceive you. Its spontaneous approach offers alternatives to the contradictions of modern life. So often the very devices and systems which have been implemented to ease our daily tasks, have actually become the causes of common stress.
It points to the therapeutic rewards of observing and reflecting upon the world around us - in both its grandeur and its simplicity. It encourages interest in and concern for those around us. It assigns value to ordinary events and emotions.
Most important of all, it throws down a challenge; in whom will we put our trust, to see us through, when all else has failed?"
