"a genuinely useful book"

I have read one or two books on this subject before, but this one is different. For Hudson believes that all the lessons he has learned, all the lessons he now teaches, are applicable to normal, blessedly boring lives such as yours and mine... And I think he’s right. Anyone who reads this will be delighted by the great common sense of Hudson’s observations and insights. It’s that rarity: a genuinely useful book... By necessity, this review can barely scratch the surface of this splendid book. It’s chock-full of goodness and I can’t think of anyone I know who wouldn’t benefit from reading it.
