Product description

"New York Times"-bestselling author Anne Lamott writes about the three simple prayers essential to coming through tough times, difficult days and the hardships of daily life. Readers of all ages have followed and cherished Anne Lamott's funny and perceptive writing about her own faith through decades of trial and error. And in her new book, "Help, Thanks, Wow," she has coalesced everything she knows about prayer to these fundamentals. It is these three prayers - asking for assistance from a higher power, appreciating what we have that is good, and feeling awe at the world around us - that can get us through the day and can show us the way forward. In Help, Thanks, Wow, Lamott recounts how she came to these insights, explains what they mean to her and how they have helped, and explores how others have embraced these same ideas. Insightful and honest as only Anne Lamott can be, "Help, Thanks, Wow "is the everyday faith book that new Lamott readers will love and longtime Lamott fans will treasure.

Review quote

"Charmingly irreverent." --"MORE "magazine "Filled with Lamott's unique brand of humor, wisdom and profound spiritual insight... She has a gift for putting into words what it means to accept and ultimately embrace the beauty, mystery, and pain that is life." --"San Antonio Express-News" "Practical and poetic advice on prayer." --"The Oregonian " "An imaginative do-it-yourself approach to spirituality...With a stand-up comic's snap and pop, candid and righteous Lamott tells hilarious and wrenching tales about various predicaments that have sparked her prayers and inspired her to encourage others to pray anytime, anywhere, and any way." --"Booklist" "[A] prayer manual for people who wouldn't be caught dead reading prayer manuals... anybody who gets it as a holiday gift will likely just say, 'Thanks. Wow.'" --"Publishers Weekly " "A refreshingly simple approach to spiritual practice in a pint-sized reflection on prayer...Lamott manages to deftly convey the idea that in trying to control things, we've largely lost our ability to see the good and the miraculous in everyday life...there's more here than meets the eye." --"Kirkus Reviews" "[With Lamott's] usual fluency and charm...A worthy successor to her prior works...["Help, Thanks, Wow"] will delight Lamott's regular readers, and likely draw new readers to her writing." --"Library Journal "(starred review)
