At a very difficult time in my life, I just kept starting at the beginning every time I finished reading it. I felt as if I knew Pema Chodron personally by reading her books. And having read everything of Chogyam Trungpa's that I could find prior, I had a strong grasp of the foundation from which she learned, but that is certainly not a prerequisite to benefiting from her teachings.
I would also strongly recommend her earlier book: The Wisdom of No Escape.
Also, unlike a lot of other books on Eastern religion that I've read, she uses really western metaphors, which makes the book very accessible.
Besides, how could you NOT like a book that contains the line:
"One of my favorite dharma teachers is Dr. Seuss; he captures the human condition so beautifully."
So, if you'd like to know what Star-Belly Sneetches have to do with compassionate living with an open heart, this is definitely the book for you.
This book works on many levels... I am not a 'serious practitioner,' by any means, but someone who goes to work every day and has to deal with many frustrations and stresses, but this book offers practical methods that help you deal with just these impediments in your life, so that you can be happier, and give more happiness to others.
I also sense that for someone who is more dedicated to making their life centered on spiritual practice, this book is a foundation for such a disciplined path as well.
