The Seat of the Soul

By Gary Zukav
384 pages; Simon & Schuster

Have you ever had one of those moments when you just had to stop and go, "Wow"? That's how I felt the first time I read this book in 1989 and how I feel each time I reread it. It helped cure me of the disease to please—and steered me in the direction of my own true north. My favorite insight? "When the personality comes fully to serve the energy of its soul, that is authentic empowerment."
