I hadn't thought of that and am glad you pointed it out! Like I said, I don't know that I'd put this off even if I didn't have it, but it will put a major dent in my net worth. But what the hell, it's already been dented big tme by the economic downturn, so what's a little more denting if I can potentially achieve a higher quality of life? This book is REALLY good. I started it at about 6:00am and I'm over halfway through it. It's really, really good. I just can't imagine what they had to endure. MS sucks bad, but life in those camps was something that we can only empathize with but never, ever really understand.
One of the profound lessons in this book is what was stated earlier; things beyond my control are stripping away things I possess, but those things cannot have my freedom to control my response to it all. This is good stuff. I can't believe I haven't read this book yet, but there's no time like the present!
