    3.5 stars. Rounding down because this guy was not a good reader of his own stuff, and the stuff wasn't that robust--basically this is a "how-to" for MBSR (Mindfulness Stress Reduction)--and that part was good--very straightforward, that is, if you already have done this and already have learned about it some other way. Doty has a way of pausing every 3 or 4 words which was super strange as if every sentence had multiple commas in it--I found myself wondering if he has a speech or brain impedimen 3.5 stars.

Doty has a way of pausing every 3 or 4 words which was super strange as if every sentence had multiple commas in it--I found myself wondering if he has a speech or brain impediment and actually talks this slowly and haltingly in real life. Highly recommend listening to this at 1.7 to 1.9 speed--that range seemed to work best for me and when he got too repetitious, I bumped it up. Here is the Alphabet of the Heart/Compassion Beads: C is for Compassion (Self-Compassion and Compassion for the suffering of others) D is for Dignity--everyone deserves respect and has dignity and worth E is for Equanimity--keeping an even temperament under stress F is for Forgiveness G is for Gratitude H is for Humility--even if you are a Neurosurgeon at Stanford, you must be humble I is for Integrity J is for Justice--Social Justice, you should try to effect Social Change and help those who are vulnerbale K is for Kindness (different from Compassion, because Compassion implies Empathy for Suffering, whereas, Kindness is doing a random act without expecting anything in return) L is for... LOVE--you gotta love everyone! Everyone, no exceptions and there is a Golden Bead for the Golden Rule. What I learned from this: that I have to stop hating myself, because you can love others without loving yourself, and have compassion for others without loving yourself, but you will be a more effective and better doctor if you are kind to yourself. You need self-compassion and self-kindness in order to be the best healer and physician possible. You have to recharge or you get burnt out and exhausted--and self-kindness and self-tolerance is what helps you recharge. No one can give that to you except you. Also, I learned that it is OK to dislike people and still wish them peace and joy and spiritual success--and you can keep on disliking them. That was super interesting. I got so irritated with the story about Ruth, the wise older woman in the Magic Shop who taught James Doty how to meditate, and his constant repetition of the sentence "What Ruth taught me... changed the entire trajectory of my life" that I found myself fantasizing that at the end he would say, "So, I returned to the Magic Shop the next week but it was gone, and in its place was a Drycleaner's and when I asked about the Magic Shop, I was told, well, there was a Magic Shop there once long ago but 20 years before, and the proprietor's mother Ruth had died in the Shop years before I was even born." That would have been an awesome Twilight Zone-type ending to this.

    Wonderful book to remind us to be kind, loving and giving and that the power of positive thinking has no limits. I loved it.
