One addiction that's gotten little play is that of an obsession with certainty. Life coach and business consultant Carmen has experienced firsthand the need continually to be assured that things would turn out as she had planned. Her struggle caused untold stress and thwarted many of her ideas and projects. When she discovered the concept of maybe—that situations could unfold in myriad ways—she wrote this book to help other sufferers. Carmen uses her own and others' experiences to explain how one can embrace life's uncertainties as opportunities, develop hope in unlimited possibilities, and enjoy the present as a true gift.
VERDICT A little gem of a book with a positive and powerful message.
