That said, I do not think people understand just how "stuck," as Ford calls it, they are. I know I didn't. I put her guide to the ultimate test in that I applied her guide to my own life. As a result I learned to simplify my life and became closer to God.
I would challenge anyone to not only read her book but to apply Ford's methods to their own lives and not come out all the better for it. You must go into it with an open mind, but you will come out with an open heart. Ford has kept things simple, which is completely refreshing. Many times you come away from a religious guide more lost than found. She writes as if she is addressing an old friend and not a general reader with whom she has no prior relationship.
