A PACE OF GRACE: The Virtues of a Sustainable Life

Linda Kavelin Popov, Author . Plume $15 (341p) ISBN 978-0-452-28543-9

A psychotherapist and founder of the Virtues Project, Popov (The Family Virtues Guide ), found that, despite her success, she was beset by stress and fatigue. Diagnosed with postpolio syndrome, she restored herself by following a 10-point plan she developed as a guide to living a more fulfilling and less frenzied life: maintaining a clean body and following a nutritious diet, practicing correct breathing and exercise, resting daily, pursuing peaceful activities, making time for play and praying frequently. At the heart of Popov's gentle message is a deep concern for the lack of meaning in everyday existence and the unkind way people often treat one another. She strongly recommends such virtues as acceptance and appreciation of intimates, practicing thankfulness and making joy a priority. There's very little to argue with here, though Popov does not always avoid trite phrasing or repetition in making it manifest. Agent, Teresa Park of Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. (July)
