Among the most celebrated spiritual editors of her generation, Toinette Lippe's life could easily be calculated in its accomplishments. But in this vivid and practical book, Lippe illuminates the real yardstick of life: neither things nor accomplishment, but experience.

The message of how to live a life of good use rather than one of acquisition is woven throughout the wisdom of this subtle yet powerful work. At a time of heightened interest in slowing down and appreciating the details of our existence, this slender volume offers remarkable literary verve and insight.

That she lives alone clearly affects her ability to maintain space in her apartment, her mind and her life, and this creates the book's single flaw: many will find that the presence of family members in their homes and lives complicates things considerably.
