The best things come in small packages... self-help, motivation, philosophy, social commentary and humour, are all rolled into this little book of quotes and snippets. Ideal for the office shelf, bedtime reading or stress-busting short breaks, this handy, easy-to-carry volume, does not have any one lesson to share, but many which one can come back to again and again whenever one wishes to. It is not a one-time read but an enjoyable multiple reading venture with assorted quotes from some well-known and some not-so-well-known people, in addition to the author s insightful and sometimes irreverent, snippets. Some of the quotes hit hard and compel us to put on our thinking caps, while others are light and funny, but always eye-opening. Some can be put up on our screens to motivate ourselves while others just may not resonate with a person right away, but nevertheless make one reflect. This is truly The Book Under My Pillow...
