Review: The Spirit Of Love Vol 1, 2, & 3 by Glen Bower & Edwina Beven

This is a Wonderful set of books. It really is a very short and quick read since there is a short poem, quote, or phrase per page. There are also some beautiful pictures throughout the book. Don't let the fact that this is a quick read take away from what the book really is about. The book is actually the writings of one man who took the path of addictions in life with drugs and alcohol. This book is about his journey back onto the right path of life.

Some of the pages are very dark and depressing, some of light. Each page if you really take  time to red it and grasp its meaning can either have you n tears for the mans pain or cheering for his enlightenment. I can see this book a being interpreted differently by different people also. What one phrase may say to me may be totally opposite for the next person.

Knowing the back ground to the book does help to put it in a different context as well. Not knowing the man's struggle could also make you feel differently about what he is saying in his writings.  The book is gripping and will make you think as well. Most of the book can be used with any personal issue. The poems, quotes, and phrases are not about his addictions, they are his thoughts at the moment of life, love, and day to day thinking. At least this is how I read it,
