I found this book to be incredibly honest. If you are looking for a brighter side of life this book is not for you. If you want someone that will walk with you as you wander through life and has a bit of wisdom for you then David Whyte is at his best from what I can tell. I experienced only openness and curiosity from this book. Its not necessarily poetry, its more of meditations, which is a great little bit to start your day with.
I'm a little surprised by the number of stars many people gave to this book. I found it lacking the poetry, even humanity, I expected from a poet. But I only gave it a few chapters because I was turned off with his interpretation of those words. Language is fluid, changing. He approaches it almost with anger and confining. The tone seemed more a world according to David Whyte than a contemplation of words. There isn't an openness of exploration and meaning but definitive conclusions and instruction. Much of it dark, heavy, burdened. That wasn't what I was expecting nor looking for. Hardly consolations by any means. I wish the author greater happiness than it seems he found in writing this book. Now I'm wondering if my two stars were generous!
