The book is exactly what it says, a workbox, it is a step by step activity of the book Love yourself heal your life.
It did take two exercises for me to get the hang of it. But after attending the Love yourself,Heal your life workshop conducted by Asma D’souza, the book became absolutely workable.
Of course how exactly one uses this book is up to the user.
addendum: Asma D’souza is contactable at her website http://personallyco.com

The book is a fiction based on the stock characters from Ramayana. The tale is narrated through the Ravana and Bhadra an asura who is positioned as the darker side of Ravana. Ravana is a wannabe idealistic hero, but in Anand’s tale he is neither the personification of evil as pictured by Tulsidas nor he is the well-educated non-Aryan leader of the Jain and Buddhist tales, neither is the heroic uddata nayaka of southern folklore, Ravana here appears as a whining, looser.
The story is well presented, and the book is quite difficult to put down. The last three chapters do drag a bit.
Over all a good book.

A very interesting book on spiritual journaling. It is a cruise of a group of spiritual writers who follow the path of the original keepers of the sacred stories.
Each of us have a story, some heroic efforts, some losses, these are the sacred stories that have to be told, and this was done by the scribes of Egypt. They were the technicians of documenting the sacred masters of hieroglyphics thinking, in proper sequence, intonation and proper intent. There were able to create through words and thoughts the pilgrims of the word travel have attempt to practise this form of journaling.
Their insights, their breakthroughs, their transformation and learning all documented as the authors take us through their internal self journey while anchoring it on external landmarks of Egypt.
