Too soon old, too late smart - thirty true things you need to know now

This slim volume was written by a psychiatrist based on a lifetime of psychotherapy - and on an especially tough lifetime experience of losing not one but two children.

I had read this before but brought a copy along anyway. I was not disappointed - it is a real gem.

A book like this is engaging at two levels - one as a voyeur, a detached spectator enjoying the distillation of experience that he describes so concisely; the other is as a player, dancing the dance rather than spectating (it is a whole lot tougher to translate his challenges into personal insights and to figure out what to do as a result).

I'll post a selection of favourites in:

If you are sufficiently intrigued, just go get a copy and enjoy!
