Publisher's Description

In today’s anxiety-ridden, stress-infused world, even a moment of quiet reflection has become a time- consuming luxury most of us just can’t afford.  How did we reach this point? How did we lose our direction and sense of control? And, most important, how can we reclaim our lives? 

Linda Kavelin Popov asked herself these same questions, after the pressures of her own workaholic lifestyle nearly destroyed her.  Now, as cofounder of the International Virtues Project she helps others achieve a pace of grace—a pace for our lives that can balance and sustain us physically and spiritually.  

Through a four-part program that teaches you how to purify your life, pace yourself, practice the presence, and plan a sustainable life, A Pace of Grace offers simple ways to rediscover the essential elements of a life well lived.  Complete with Linda’s ten rules for health, this comprehensive guide is the first step in recapturing the joy and vibrancy inherent in each of us.

Library Journal

Mashing together a do-less, enjoy-more philosophy with a range of retread techniques (e.g., do yoga, practice forgiveness, work smarter), psychotherapist Popov seeks to help readers simplify their lives. Unfortunately, her book reads like a disjointed, overstuffed, and often precious scrapbook. After blaming "FOG" (fatigue, overwhelm, and guilt) for people's distress, she dispenses advice rooted in the ideals of the nonprofit organization she cofounded, the Virtues Project International. Readers will find little how-to and must bear in mind about 100 "virtues" (e.g., sacrifice, trust, and unity) that were partly the focus of Popov's previous The Family Virtues Guide: Simple Ways To Bring Out the Best in Our Children and Ourselves. While certain passages have merit, the book feels disconnected and self-indulgent. Not recommended, though Popov is an Oprah darling, so there may be demand.

Publisher's Weekly

A psychotherapist and founder of the Virtues Project, Popov (The Family Virtues Guide), found that, despite her success, she was beset by stress and fatigue. Diagnosed with postpolio syndrome, she restored herself by following a 10-point plan she developed as a guide to living a more fulfilling and less frenzied life: maintaining a clean body and following a nutritious diet, practicing correct breathing and exercise, resting daily, pursuing peaceful activities, making time for play and praying frequently. At the heart of Popov's gentle message is a deep concern for the lack of meaning in everyday existence and the unkind way people often treat one another. She strongly recommends such virtues as acceptance and appreciation of intimates, practicing thankfulness and making joy a priority. There's very little to argue with here, though Popov does not always avoid trite phrasing or repetition in making it manifest. Agent, Teresa Park of Sanford J. Greenburger Associates.
