Spirit Junkie: A Radical Road to Discovering Self-Love and Miracles

Gabrielle Bernstein. Harmony, $23 (256p) ISBN 978-0-307-88740-5
Bernstein's talent for marketing herself through media coverage, speaking engagements, and her mentoring Web site is apparent in this volume. Bernstein (Add More ~ing to Your Life) puts her scars up front, describing the "tiny mad ideas," or illusions, that made her a drug- and relationship-addicted narcissist and the changes that came with gratitude, forgiveness, meditation, prayer, and surrendering to her inner guide, which she calls her "~ing." Some readers may be skeptical about Bernstein's experiences of "synchronicity," but most will appreciate her confessions of continued wrangling with the "ego tornado." Bernstein pitches her reflections and exercises toward Gen Y readers, but by emphasizing inner peace and emotional stability, she broadens the book's appeal to anyone who, like Bernstein, has decided that the only option is to "put down the practical and pick up the spiritual."
