I liked the topic of good novels, but I didn't want to go off track there, so I'm starting a new thread about non-fiction that you liked.  I really enjoyed  Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia by Elizabeth Gilbert.  And I just started The Faith Club: A Muslim, A Christian, A Jew-- Three Women Search for Understanding, which is also very good, and hard to put down.  A lot of non-fiction I don't really care for, because I find it dry, and frankly, not very engaging or interesting.

So I'm looking for some more good nonfiction recommendations.  Anyone have any?

I'm almost through with How to Want What You Have by Timothy Millar, it's been around for a while, so there should be plenty out there available.  I like it a lot, he is a psychologist and comes from that perspective but with strong spiritual themes.  It gives you a lot to think about and provides real, useful methods for dealing head on with life instead of just getting by.  I believe it will make a big difference to my life anyway!

Course I have a huge list of good non-fiction: anything by Wayne Dyer, Gregg Braden, Louise Hay, the Dalai Lama to name a few :)  Hope you get some more response here, I'd like to see what others recommend too.

Cheers, Margaret

Eat, Pray, Love is WONDERFUL!!   A must read, IMO!
