I really liked this book and it's already made a big difference in my life. Right away I was hooked by the real life examples the author uses - "that's just like me!", I thought. Unlike many "help" books, this one gave me an immediate, easy place to start AND I immediately noticed a difference. I started with the body scan in chapter 3 and the daily feelings examen in chapter 4 and was amazed at how much these simple practices increased my awareness of what was going on. The amazing result was comfort. Then I noticed I felt more calm, confident and powerful where I often have felt anxious, wimpy and angry. Talk about a way to reduce stress! These simple first steps that even a way too busy person like me can fit into my day seem to start an upward spiral that little by little quickly leads to more energy and joy. The explanation of the science behind emotions is easy to understand and I found it totally fascinating. The information about ancient wisdom practices fed my spirit and I felt a little more connected to the universe. I've taken lots of management courses and read a lot of great sounding self-improvement programs, but this deceptively quiet, simple book really worked for me. I definitely recommend walking this path.

"Paths Are Made By Walking" can show us how to map our journey or it can offer us an instant emergency reference, and its message of confidence and empowerment serves up equanimity and compassion in equal measure. The personal and global implications of doing what Thérèse Jacobs-Stewart so eloquently recommends are simply stunning."
Having worked in education for the past 18 years, I am happy to see that this book is out there for others to utilize. This book offers an integrated toolset for educators, counselors, and administrators to teach, counsel, and inform about emotional intelligence and the science behind the practices. This book is a timeless piece that can lead to profound behavioral changes, greater self-realization, and more effective self-management. We need to continually practice and grow in order to make new connections in our emotional brains. This book serves as a guide in finding a 'PATH' that best works for each individual. Emotional intelligence is essential for teachers, counselors, and other professionals in the field of education. This read is a worthy purchase that I would highly recommend to others in education and counseling. Experience and enjoy the pathway!
I had the opportunity to read this book while en route to what I expected to be a very difficult business meeting. As the plane ate up the miles between my home office and my destination, I ate up the pages of this book. In it, I discovered within myself the path to produce a superior result in my conversations with my client, and create an atmosphere where everyone in attendance felt like a winner. I realized that my trepidation about the meeting was, in truth, a boundless energy source, available to access for the benefit of all involved in the discussion. I offer my thanks to the author, for providing me the most plausible and beneficial business tool I have encountered in over 15 years of specialization in turbulent launch merger Corporate-America, and a resource that I use every day, both professionally and personally. I plan on buying a stack, and giving copies to business colleagues, friends, and family.
This is a great guide for people who want to manage stress and enjoy life more. It's an easy read with a nice mix of stories and practical exercises. Reading the book helped me relax even if I wasn't doing the exercises.
I've also lent this book out a few times to family and friends. So many people I know are stressed out these days (work pressure, family issues, midlife crisis, world politics, quitting smoking, etc.) and looking for ways to cope or be happier. This has to be about the healthiest and most constructive way to deal with these kinds of things. It's basically a do-it-yourself approach that lets you (quickly) try a lot of new ways to relax and "get a grip" without having to go to a monastery or a lot of seminars. It's really a nice book to have around.
Great book, filled with practical steps and encouragement.

I was very impressed with the condition of the book I ordered and the speedy delivery.

Amazon and its members provide an excellent service.
I really enjoyed the book. It was a nice blend of science and reflection. What I found to be unique was that the author provided a step-by-step guide to help resolve emotional hijackings. I have recommended this book to several of my friends who also found it valuable. One of these friends has complained to that therapists have told her what to do but not how to do it. She loved the practical steps outlined in this book. She tells me that she refers to the book often.
