The Sacred Year ~ Michael Yankoski

Michael Yankoski, a man of faith, motivational speaker and a very busy schedule.  This is his story of how he decides that he needs to change his life and goes to a monastery for a monastery after his stay he realizes that for the next year he is going practice what he learns.  The book contains the stories and challenges that he faces within the year.  Michael talks about how a simple apple has a deeper meaning, living on $2.00 a day can be done on a very simple schedule and that you can appreciate people by saying thanks to them (by writing thank you notes and cards) this will give you grace for living.

I would recommend this for someone that enjoys a heavy long read.  I felt the book could have been shorter and a little more easier to read.  It was hard for me to stay focused as it seemed to keep going on and on.  I enjoyed the message but not the very many details it takes to getting it. This is not a bad book, I like the thought and feeling behind it, however; this is not my type of read.  I was excited by the cover and description, but let down by the extended detail of the book contents.
