Hope in Small Doses

In this timely book, author Nikki Stern asks, what is hope?
What does it mean? How do we find it and will it make us happy?

Hope in Small Doses, which Psychology Today calls “an intelligent book,” is a welcome counterpoint to the cult of cynicism: practical, good-natured, and ultimately uplifting.

    A must read for anyone trying to reconcile hope and uncertainty. Stern makes no outlandish promises, but she does suggest that hope, even without a guaranteed outcome, is worth the effort.
    I believe her.

    • Steve Schlicht says:

      Hope, even without a guaranteed outcome, is worth the effort because without it the alternative outcome of complete loss to despair is guaranteed.

      As a veteran peace officer, violent crimes investigator, community service volunteer and first responder before, during and after hurricane Katrina, having been raised along the gulf coast from New Orleans to Biloxi, I have empirical evidence that hope, even in small doses, is the right medicine.

      It heals and it provides for human empathy, deep abiding selfless and unconditional love, and it not only helps us endure through our tragedies…it is the foundation upon which we ultimately prevail over them as a human family.

      Thank you, Nikki Stern, your experiences and insight are very much appreciated.

      Steve
