Notes from grateful readers.

The Secret of Letting Go is the first book of this type that I've ever read. I wandered into its section by accident and it was the first one I pulled off the shelf. I sat and read just the introduction and it was as if someone had knocked me in the head and suddenly everything made perfect sense. Thank you for all that this book has helped me learn.”
