The new Comfort and Joy Expanded Edition is a small book that can engender big and welcomed changes in our lives and our attitude. It's a book to keep handy, to turn to again and again. Lafia offers forty-five vignettes-small stories, pictures of comfort as simple and grand as a plush pillow, a warm cup of tea. Simply reading them is comforting and more than likely to inspire the reader to follow the suggestions in "Cultivating Comfort," which follows each passage. And because she knows that comfort taken and comfort shared make the world a very much better place, in a section called "Applied Comfort," Lafia gives us inspiring ways to take comfort and pass it on. A simple and beautiful book with a profound message - learning to comfort ourselves is not a narcissistic pursuit - it's absolutely essential if we want to make any kind of real difference in the world.
