I love this book! Danny has written a masterpiece on the art and science of acceptance, revealing the paradoxical relationship between true acceptance and transformation—the key to serenity, vitality, clarity, love, joy, and wisdom. This is truly a gift to anyone who takes the time to read the precious words within this little book.

It’s a pleasure to have read Miller’s book on acceptance, a theme that is very close to my heart. I have been in long-term recovery, in both Al-Anon and AA, for more than four decades, and being willing to accept those people and situations over which I have no control is necessary to my peace of mind. Miller’s book is absolutely key to both the understanding of acceptance and how to flourish within the confines of relationships that snag our ego.

I highly recommend this book to those who find they struggle to simply ‘let people be.'

If you think you know what acceptance means, think again. In his latest book, Danny Miller has put a lot of research and thought into this deceptively simple yet powerful concept. He breaks down the myths and gifts of this approach to life and provides you with practical self-inquiries and ‘acceptance intentions,’ as well as real-life examples to help you handle every type of difficult relationship and circumstance with greater peace and serenity. Valuable as a reference guide, especially for the chapters on dealing with foes and crazy makers—and yourself! You will keep reaching for The Gifts of Acceptance as one of the 12-step staples in your library.
