Born for Love : Reflections on Loving Mar 18, 2006
Leo Buscaglia never received the recognition he deserved for being an inspiration without being overly religious or dogmatic. His humor and insight are realistic and applicable to all humanity. This book simply defines what we all hope to achieve but often fail at, unconditional love. A funny, inspirational and thought-provoking book.
Almost beyond words Dec 12, 2004
Dr. Buscaglia has accomplished something here that is a miracle in itself. To be able to describe love and compassion so clearly and in such a readable way is an amazing achievement. When he walked with us, he always said that he would not tolerate "follow the guru". He knew, at this great time of awakening, that we must become aware of the divine within us. And he has helped us so much, as students of compassion, with this wonderful contribution. It is filled with treasures that will enrich your life. Thank you Leo!
Not a better Seller?? May 17, 2004
"Staying in love requires far more of us. To satisfy the senses may be the major challenge for some, but it is actually the easiest part. The mind and spirit require continual attention and stimulation as well. It is not until we assume responsibility for the enhancement of the total self that love will survive."
Paragraphs like this and many others make this book very worthwhile.

Love - Start With Yourself Nov 21, 2002
This is a very beautiful book; and very easy to read. Each page is like a short story that defines love, and makes the reader drunk with joy, if you will.
One of my favorite messages in this book reads, "Even when no one else seems to recognize how truly remarkable we are, we always have ourselves, the one inexhaustible resource for positive reinforcement, the one person who will always proudly wave our personal flag."
This is a wonderful message to use as an affirmation, because as one says these words, out loud, with closed eyes, 3 times per day, for 21 days (enough time to form new habits), you see, feel and hear more of your connection to the human race.
And it is in this new place, one is able to transcend the self and focus upon the needs of others around us, while we fulfill our own needs.
It is also the best way to follow the path that you are here to travel.
