I absolutely love this story. So heart warming and endearing. I even had my 10 year daughter read it and she loved it too. Can't wait until book 2 is released.
This has been an important book in my life for the past 10 years. I have gone through the process 4-5 times.I believe the book is extremely valuable for anyone who wants to have more creativity in their life, including such non-"artistic" pursuits as creative problem solving, creative parenting, etc. I have experienced and seen others experience great results. There are some very difficult moments, especially in Chapter 8-9 when the rubber hits the road and you are asked to name your goal and how you are going to get there. It's easy to turn away at that point. Don't. Just take a chance. I'm convinced that the best way to do the program is to do it as a group with a good facilitator. Otherwise it's very difficult to pick yourself up and keep going when you inevitably fall behind. And while it's opposing what Cameron herself suggests, I do believe the facilitator needs to have a different role than the other members of the circle, to keep the group organized and to plan how the work will get done. That said, it's critical that the facilitator also be doing the program him/herself and act as a facilitator, not a know-it-all teacher. Final piece of advice-- get yourself a notebook and do all the exercises in it. The format where some exercises are in the book and some are suggested at the end leads to too much scattered, imporant work. You need to be able to look back over and see what your answers have been telling you.
