Editorial Reviews

"Parker Palmer's writing is like a high country stream-clear, vital, honest. If your life seems to be passing you by, or you cannot see the way ahead, immerse yourself in the wisdom of these pages and allow it to carry you toward a more attentive relationship with your deeper, truer self." (John S. Mogabgab, editor, Weavings Journal)

"An exuberant and passionate book. I was deeply moved and I cannot, nor do I want to, shake off the haunting questions that it raises for me. This book penetrates the soul, and it will definitely stir you to explore more of your own inner territory. What an extraordinary achievement." (Jim Kouzes, coauthor, The Leadership Challenge and Encouraging the Heart; chairman, Tom Peters Group/Learning Systems)

"At a time when our culture is seeking a new language for expressing the spirit in everyday life, Parker Palmer is our leading voice of clarity and wisdom. In Let Your Life Speak, Palmer continues to deepen our ways of understanding the relationships between the inner life of spirit and the outer life of action." (Rob Lehman, president, The Fetzer Institute)

"In our search for authentic vocation, this book should be the starting point and deserves a prominent place in every home, school, and college. It is vintage Parker Palmer, providing his unique insight to the interconnectedness of selfhood and vocation with eloquence and personal experience." (Doug Orr, president, Warren Wilson College)

    As a deep thinker, and with beautiful understanding, Palmer takes high-order reflection and makes it applicable in one's daily life. A wonderful book to help one discern one's unique sense of meaning in God's love.

    DO NOT waste your time or your money on this book. It is definitely not a Christian book, but heavily New Age spiritualism, pro-homosexual, sacredness of self and nature etc. God is thrown in here and there, probably only to expand the market of the book. I won't even give this book away; it's to the trash heap with this one.

    This is not a very good book. He refers to God as he/she. That borders on blasphemy. The only redeeming value is that he encourages people to look to themselves rather than others for their calling in life.

    Great book! He deals humorously and compassionately with the issue of finding one's calling in life. It's great to hear that I'm not the only one who's taken detours along the way.
