Inspiring book Oct. 27 2008
By Jamie Anderson - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was so inspiring! I read it cover to cover in one sitting, making for a warm and cozy afternoon. There's a nice variety of well-written stories. If you love your pets you'll love this book.

Not just sweet and loveable Jan. 8 2009
By Paul Castleman - Published on
Format: Paperback
Almost Perfect is not just another warm and fuzzy collection of stories about pets. It is an important contribution to the millions of people who have pets and to those who are considering adopting one. Just as more and more people are adopting children with special needs and finding the experience a transcendent one of giving and receiving love, so are those who share their lives with disabled animals finding it profoundly heart-opening and spiritually joyful. The authors of Almost Perfect have a remarkable knack for conveying their relationships with these wonderful pets and I strongly recommend this book.

Five star inspiration May 19 2010
By Desert Diva - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book because a friend had a story published in it. My friend lives on a Greek island where, besides being a wonderfully creative author, she has a gazillion pets. I expected to love her story. I did. I also loved every other story in the book. What a great treat. Great gift idea.

Almost Perfect Oct. 11 2009
By Jean W. Harden - Published on
Format: Paperback
I met the author when I bought the book at the Collingswood Book Festival. She autographed a copy for me, and I couldn't wait to get home to read it. In fact, I curled up on the front porch that afternoon and read the whole book from cover to cover in just one sitting...well, I must admit that I did have to take a tissue break...definitely a "two tissue read!" I laughed, I cried...I was just so inspired by all of those animals and their humans! What incredible stories of stength, courage, tenacity and love! I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone whether they are an animal lover or not. It is a truly wonderful read! I'm hoping that Mary Shafer has a lot more stories to tell.
