Nudelman, a "personal-development and self-empowerment writer," is founder and owner of the Quality of Life Advisors Group, a lifestyle consulting company that provides "expert advice and guidance for successful living." In this well-intentioned guide to awakening one's inner self, she outlines methods for reducing stress and finding peace of mind, providing her premise at the outset: "It is to help you become aware of the most powerful moment you will ever have to create the life you want to live. And that moment is now." To accomplish this, she offers exercises at the end of each chapter, e.g., in "One with Nature," the author advises that as "Life Force flows generously" through nature, readers should observe nature on a daily basis. Other chapters include "Stillness," "Letting Go," and "Releasing Fear and Dumping Regret." Some passages parallel the spiritual path described by Ram Dass in Be Here Now, yet Nudelman's book lacks the luminous visionary arc of that landmark classic. As is the case with many self-help books, redundant paragraphs become conspicuous, and the author's simplistic prose often belabors the obvious.
