5.0 out of 5 stars A treat!
I must have given this book half a dozen times as a gift to friends or family members who were in need of a little nurturing, or who needed an excuse to spend a little more time on themselves. This book has dozens of ideas for activities to help you through a day, and even a little categorized index to look for a project based on how you're feeling at the moment.

1.0 out of 5 stars A nobody trying to give psychiatric advise!
This author's experience and research was gained by randomly mailing questionaires to women in different parts of the country!!! THAT'S IT.
She then decided, after reviewing the returned questionaires (mostly from friends and family) that she would become an authority on women and their well-being.
Books written by people like this are dangerous.
She is...

This review is from: Womans Comfort Bk (Paperback)
I must have given this book half a dozen times as a gift to friends or family members who were in need of a little nurturing, or who needed an excuse to spend a little more time on themselves. This book has dozens of ideas for activities to help you through a day, and even a little categorized index to look for a project based on how you're feeling at the moment.
A real treasure! Give it to a loved one by itself, or in combination with a nice journal or blank book and a couple of fun pens (I recommend purple), and she will know you care about her. Better yet, buy one for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars An EXCELLENT Self-Nurturing "How-To" Guide, Nov. 14 1998
This review is from: Womans Comfort Bk (Paperback)
So often women are either cast in the role of care-giver, or place ourselves in that role; often we either feel guilty taking the time to care for ourselves the way we do our families and friends, or somehow perhaps think we don't deserve it.
This simple to use guide helps us first to focus on how we are feeling, getting in touch with what we need. A simple directory of 'situations' gives page numbers for suggested activities.
The activities range from the sublime to the ridiculous, but don't laugh at any of them until you have tried them. Just leafing through the book without even doing any of the suggestions seems to help me destress; just the reminder that I can do things to nourish my body and spirit is a wonderful revitalizer.
I have given away close to a dozen copies of this book to friends who are used to putting themselves and their needs last on the list of priorities. I can not praise it highly enough for women who can not find time, energy, or inclination to give to themselves the care and love that they give those around them.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book has been an inspiration to myself and others., Sept. 4 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Womans Comfort Bk (Paperback)
I first read The Woman's Comfort Book in 1993. Since then I have given multiple copies. This book has helped many distraught friends - miscarriage, husband's death, children going to college. I stopped to write this because as I was ordering yet another copy for a friend, I happened to read the negative review posted. I have to disagree. I have found all of Louden's books to be extraordinarily well researched, highly ethical, filled with common sense, and funny. I have been struck in recent years by the idea that other books have mimicked this one - portions of Simple Abundance and Succulent Wild Woman come to mind. Although at times it is simplistic and I wish she would write an update to it, it was the first book of its kind and it still packs a powerful, loving, and responsible message.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for everyone...even men!, Nov. 3 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Womans Comfort Bk (Paperback)
As a 20 year old, I picked this book up simply because I liked the idea of comfort. As I sat in the bookstore flipping through the pages, I found myself wishing I could do all of the things Louden suggests. Her ideas are very creative (such as making a list of 100 things that make you happy), and this is an excellent book for anyone who loves simple pleasures, but can't really think of them on their own. Louden is not forcing her ideas on anyone, but merely suggesting ways to improve your life and take time to yourself. This is a great book for any woman, any age, and any background because everyone likes to feel happy with their life. I have definitely learned a lot about myself, and hope that I can now work to put her suggestions into action.

By A Customer
This review is from: Womans Comfort Bk (Paperback)
This book was referred to me about 6 years ago by my psychologist I was seeing at the time. It is the most wonderful book I have ever owned. Guidance on how to comfort your self, mind, and soul from what you will need to get started, whether it is a candle, bubble bath, etc. To how to do the comforting! I have given a copy to all of my girlfriends! (I highly recommend all of Ms. Louden's books) Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Must Have" for every woman!, Jan. 26 1998
This review is from: Womans Comfort Bk (Paperback)
This, the first in a priceless series of books by Jennifer Louden,is truly a "must have" for every woman. The book is full of useable suggestions on how to practice the lost art of self-care,all arranged in an easy to use format. It does take some practice learning to take care of yourself, but this book gives you the permission and the resources to do so.

By A Customer
This review is from: Womans Comfort Bk (Paperback)
I can't put the book down. This book contains so many wonderful ideas! I find it comforting to sit in my oversized chair and flip through the pages, deciding what I'm going to try next.
I'm going to buy several as gifts for my friends. Do yourself a favor and buy it!
