An extraordinary book for ordinary life Jul 27, 2001
"where are we going so fast?" is an inspiring, heartfelt, feel-good look at the extraordinary treasures of everyday life. Jim Warda has a wonderful use of imagery and an enjoyable, personal style of writing that connects the reader with the sacred moments in one's own life. This book has inspired me to slow down and find the love, beauty and joy already present in my life.
It's time we all slow down Jun 18, 2001
I've been an avid reader of Jim's weekly internet column since its inception, and when I heard he was writing a book, I awaited the publication date with much anticipation...and I was not disappointed! Jim has an incredible knack for getting us to savor every moments in life. I now see,for instance, how the simple look of a sleeping child can be a deeply spiritual experience. Also, Jim's writing has helped to show me how we all are truly interconnected to everything else around us. If you are looking for one book that looks deeply into the human soul and presents its message simply, then this book should top your list.

What a great book! Jun 13, 2001
I thought "where are we going so fast?" by Jim Warda was a great book. I don't read as much as I probably should, but when I picked up this book, it was hard to put down. Jim writes with a lot of emotion, and a lot of the book was from experience in his own life. Even though there were stories of him in the book, I think every reader could connect themselves to him at one point or another. After reading this book I really do find my self looking at the details in life and noticing things that I would regularly pass by. It really does help you pause...take a breath...and locate priceless moments in what would be a rugular day. Also, in my opinion, it is not a book that you can read just once. It's a great book to read, put it down for a couple of months, and go back and read through it again. I most definatley give this book two thumbs up!
A must read for every parent! Jun 5, 2001
Jim Warda has been blessed with a tremendous gift. That gift is the ability to touch others' lives with his words. Jim reminds us that your interaction between spouse, chidren, parents and family is infinitely more important than the obsession with a career, new car, big house, trips etc.. Personally, I need constant reminders of how short life really is and how precious each moment is that we share with family and friends. I will keep this book close for many years. Thanks Jim.
