'This is a most extraordinary and valuable book and Dorothy Rowe is a most extraordinary and valuable person. Not only is she phenomenally wise, but she imparts her wisdom in a kind of prose poetry that moves, enlightens, reforms, beguiles and educates all at ones.' Fay Weldon 'Dorothy Rowe's is the calm voice of reason in an increasingly mad world. Buy this book.' Sue Townsend 'Dorothy Rowe has a unique ability to tackle our most fundamental emotions and issues with her innate wisdom, common sense and quiet compassion. In a market saturated with pop psychology paperbacks with their quick-fix jargon, she reminds us that we are both the creators and thus also the destroyers of our deepest fears and looks beyond dependency to encourage us to find our own solutions.'
