It's a book meant to be shared, so I buy it and give it away to people who are important to me. It's a book to read when you feel lost in the world, and in times when you're at peace with life.
Angelou shares her past and her hopes for the future. She talks about her most painful moments and moments of incandescent happiness. In these stories and essays, she shares experiences from her life that have shaped her and that she has grown from, experiences she wants to pass on that others might benefit from.
It's like a love letter to the world.

This passage is a good summation of the general theme of this book:
"When I decide to write anything, I get caught up in my insecurity despite the prior accolades. I think, uh, uh, now they will know I am a charlatan that I really cannot write and write really well. I am almost undone, then I pull out a new yellow pad and as I approach the clean page, I think of how blessed I am.
The ship of my life may or may not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of my existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, I maintain an attitude of gratitude. If I insist on being pessimistic, there is always tomorrow.
Today I am blessed."
I feel as if Dr. Angelou is speaking directly to me. When I need the wisdom and love of a mother, I open this book. Even when the book doesn't directly address my concern, I feel a sense of comfort that makes me feel that everything will be alright... This too shall pass... and this is only one day, one season and life is so FULL of many adventures. Dr. Angelou's books make me want to live a FULL life and she keeps me from being stagnant and motivated to keep dreaming, living and advancing in the world.
Maya Angelou is one of the most talented writers in history and her words have the power to reach into one's soul to make an intimate connection. The audible version is wonderful, spell-bounding, and engaging.
I love it.. had some surprising v
Revelations about her that I never would have considered... Very down to earth and of course her wisdom is beyond compare .. Comes from living a life and the learning that comes with that
.. I definitely will try to read more of her books asap... Got this book for my own daughter and my best friends daughter as well since her mother left us unexpectedly and so sadly last June...
wonderful book and a quick read which is often so important for us mothers who only get 10 minute stretches at a time to read a book.
This book is so warm and intimate that it feels like it is written to me. It is a privilege to have the author open her heart and share some of her life's emotional turning points and how they lifted her up. What a great model for the book we should all write to leave our special messages for the future!
to Maya Angelo read her own words forever. This reading has been one of the most insightful and inspiring, thought provoking and uplifting experiences I have had. Buy the audio version. Read along with her. An unforgettable experience.
A quick read that is full of the wisdom and life experiences of Maya Angelou, this book is especially wonderful when listening to the audio version read by Maya Angelou herself. She changes the whole narrative and brings life to each essay.
