Here’s what people are saying about this award winning book:
In this roadrunner world, where many of us race through life instead of actually living it, To Be Awake is a welcome blast of common sense. With intelligence, warmth and a light touch, Laurel Vespi shows us how to live life to the full by making the most of every moment.
Carl Honoré, author of In Praise of Slow, Under Pressure and The Slow Fix
Laurel Vespi s latest book discusses the problems associated with sleepwalking through life, boasting that we all have the human capacity to live, accomplish, and succeed in the moment. Instructional and motivating, Vespi inspires readers to make a positive change.
Craig Kielburger, co-founder of Free the Children and co-author of Me to We
Vespi’s book features a series of seven principles on guiding readers toward greater mindfulness and living with more authenticity. It s an excellent primer for those who don t generally read these kinds of books. For people who have more than one related book already on their bookshelves, it s a fine addition. Vespi has a gentle and relaxed style of writing. She offers some excellent real-life examples to help make her concepts more relatable. To Be Awake is an easy read and it makes mindfulness seem more approachable as a way of life.
