"In this lively, creative, and pleasure-filled book, Marilyn McEntyre presents the making of lists as a path into a wonder-filled pluriverse. . . . Whether you tend to scribble a list on a scrap of paper or regularly fill your journal with them, you will find some great ideas here!"
-- Spirituality & Practice

"You do not have to go too far into the book to discover that McEntyre has created a whole new paradigm shift, moving lists out of being simply to-do taskmasters and into being a tool to help us delve deeper into our lives and indeed into our very souls."
-- The Presbyterian Outlook

"A perfect book for yourself or to give as a gift."
-- San Francisco Book Review

-- Lauren F. Winner

"A companion who can abide amid our chaos, a sage who can choose the right moment to share a word, and a prophet who can say the thing we shrink from yet need to hear."
-- Samuel Wells
