The time-honored national bestseller, updated with a new afterword, celebrating 10 years of influencing the way we live.

Ten years later, the book continues to change lives. In honor of the book's 10th anniversary, Hyperion is proud to be releasing the book with a new afterword by the author, and to share this wonderful book with an even larger audience.
