What we need in this modern age is a respect for and attempts to "cultivate old-fashioned gifts of the spirit." Trouble is, the people of today are not old fashioned. Even in this backward town where I was born, some people can be so rude and uncaring.

Mr. Carmody's wisdom (through age-old human techniques) in this guide to peace of mind divides it into five sections: thinking, feeling, sharing, deciding, and praying. He was a former Jesuit priest who took a wife, Denise. They have written books together.

After being diagnosed with bone cancer in 1992, he wrote this book as a guide and an inspiration for himself. It is a guide of acceptance, by which you learn to use your inner resources.

To be reasonable, first you should put aside your own illusions, fantasies and self-indulgences. Many (or most) of our troubles come from being foolish, but we all can't be wise. We learn by experience, right? Wrong! we learn by paying attention to one who has been there, done that!

Mainly, we must be aware of our own emotions, moods, consolations, and desolations in order to move on and have "peace." Our feelings are the way we discover the "world of values" -- what we esteem and value and what we appreciate. We must overcome emotional troubles to establish the peace we seek.

Share what is troubling you. Trouble (or grief) shared is halved if another is involved. Break out of your isolation and allow objectivity to help you realize that you are not alone. Talk it out, get it (whatever is hurting or bothering you) out of your system. Share what is happening to you, and you will learn that others are hurting, too. Make a move.

Deal with the deeper issues so as not to be foolish, dumb and cowardly (three deadly sins). Open your heart to those you love. Ask for their consolation and understanding as you go through these difficult times. And you will enjoy beautiful days (the sunrises and sunsets of our lives) again. Life is good. Live it to the fullest. Not only will you help yourself, you will be helping others too.

I have found Carmody's "How to Handle Trouble" to be the one of the most truly useful books I have ever read (and reread) about meeting real hardships in life. Realistic, hopeful, and wise, Carmody's writing addresses issues as practical as the need for help from friends and as profound as the need to address the deeper mysteries of life, death and meaning. All is written in a very accessible way, and organized so that particular themes and topics can be easily identified when you want to go back to revisit them. Down to earth, yet never forgetting the horizon of mystery that surrounds human life. A good book to hold onto, and to read and reflect on, time and again.

This is a book that you will want to pick up and read select chapters time and again. The wisdom in this book is just what you need when in a contemplative spirit. John Carmody gives sound advice in teaching you to map out a course that leaves you feeling in control and able to cope. Keep this in your favorite reading spot because it is slow reading; you read a little and think a lot.

This is a very good book if you are having bad times. Carmody provides no-nonsense advice and philosophy on how to deal with death or pain. His spirituality is present throughout the work, but is not in your face. Very good starter for anyone looking for something beyond a self-help book.
