Phenomenal. Everyone should read it. (Susan T, ME)

We forget as a crazed, busy, overwhelmed society that life is what we make it. For me, your book spoke directly to me, and I desperately needed that right now. Thank you. 😀 😀 I have spent the majority of my life with an uncharacteristically positive and optimistic outlook given where I came from, which was far from idyllic. I am a no nonsense, pull yourself up by the bootstraps and get on with it type of person. The last couple of years with serious illness and some other very serious challenges had taken their toll with my attitude and constant worry. Your book helped me to pull myself back out of where I'd been sinking to and I'm in a hugely better place today than I was even Friday. It will sit beside my bed forever to remind me where I need to be.

I am buying copies for each of my (grown) children in the hope that it will inspire them as it has me to take the time to remember what life is really about. 

Great gift for graduates, caregivers, & those who are stressed (Carney Doucette, ME)

"A is for Attitude" is a book filled with wisdom on how to navigate through life's challenges. I believe that this is a great gift for youth graduating from high school, young adults just starting out on their own, and for caregivers and people facing illness and other stressful events. It has become my favorite gift to give. In my copy, I enjoy reading a section, looking at the beautiful photo that represents it, and reflecting on what it means in my current situation. This book reminds me how to get unstuck and move forward again with a smile on my face. Truly inspirational!

Attitude, the most important asset (Caty Mock, OH)

This book is amazing. Beautiful photography and beautiful words. It is easy, well-written prose to guide you to a more fulfilling life. Each concept is accompanied by a gorgeous photograph taken by the author on her travels all over the world. The photos alone are reason to buy the book. As well as for yourself, this little book would make an inspiring gift for a young person or someone going through a serious illness.

Beautiful (Stacey Langkamer for Kay Reuter, PA)

What a Beautiful book ! What can I say about it's contents? They are truly inspirational. I read it cover to cover in one session. Now I shall read a "letter" a day at a time as part of my morning devotions. There is so much to really ponder. (Written by a friend for Kay Reuter)
