Genevieve Boast's extraordinary book, Tough Bliss, is a combination of searingly honest autobiographical narrative, philosophical treatise and how-to self-help manual, that combines the practical with the sacred and mystical. It touches on meditation, Christian mysticism, Native American wisdom and shamanism. The combination simply shouldn't work. Yet amazingly it does, engaging the reader in a roller coaster ride that switches from sad to glad and the profoundly moving. She tells the disruptive story of her personal journey, from Colorado to Cambridge, UK, from police arrest to whistleblower, from loss to loving partner and ultimate triumph on her spiritual quest. Be reckoned to be changed by reading this profound and thoughtful book.
