mind-clearing reminders of what is important Nov 24, 2008
Dr. Swenson has a way of writing that makes you think. He gives you those ah-ha moments of clarity in a world gone crazy with overflowing schedules and overflowing houses and overflowing egos. Over and over I would feel myself relax and realize that there are so many things that are important... and the race for bigger, faster, stronger just isn't one of them. We are all crying out for balance, and this little book helps put many things into perspective so that balance can be a realistic goal. I recommend his other books on the same subject too, "Margin", and "Overload Syndrome".
A Minute of Margin is a minute well spent May 27, 2008
This little book packs a big punch. I start off every morning with this book. I believe it makes a me a little wiser everyday. It really makes you think about a lot of things we usually do not think about. Buy this book. It is a small price to pay for a lot of wisdom.
A Minute of Margin Apr 3, 2008
This is a wonderful book which I purchased as a gift. People enjoy these powerful daily reflections that are thought provoking and inspiring. They point to the awesomeness of God and use short proverbs from around the world that undergird the author's point. Each also contains a prescription for improving our daily lives. Not the usual how-to book.
A Minute of Margin Mar 3, 2008
An extemely stimulaing, insightful book that is in an easy-to-read format. Its call for balance and simplicity in life in this hectic, 21st century world is pertinent and practical. Written by a medical doctor, it includes a daily prescription for applicaion of truth.
You Won't Want to Put it Down Dec 12, 2007
This is one of those books that you won't want to put down. Dr. Swenson challenges you to think deeply about the true issues of life. And, after reflecting on what really matters in life, you will be left with no better alternative than to slow down and enjoy life and your loved ones. I'd recommend this book to anyone who is "too busy." It is a simple read and is broken down into two-page reflections, which take (surprisingly!) about a minute to read. Enjoy.
