This book found its way into my life at just the right time. I’m only 23-years-old and I feel like I’ve just started going through my “quarter life crisis.” I’ve started my journey to becoming a librarian, but other areas of my life have still felt off kilter. What The Soul Searcher’s Handbook gave me was a solid foundation and/or jumping off point for getting it together. It introduced me to the world of healing crystals, meditation, and just connecting my mind to my body and soul. It may sound completely cheesy, but I feel like a whole new person since I started reading this and other books like it.

So now you’re probably like, “That’s all fine and well Carrianne, but why is this book so amazing?” Let me tell you. This book is amazing because of the vast array of content it covers and the way in which Emma covers it; she manages to write everything in a way that’s easy to comprehend and makes things they may seem obscure incredibly relevant to your life. I’ve never looked into crystals, numerology, and/or feng shui (at least not seriously) but this book gave me enough information that I understood it and could even delve in a little bit if I wanted.

I gobbled this book up in one sitting (it isn’t all that long) and then found myself continuously going back to look at it. Since I initially had it checked out from the library, I had to renew it for another three weeks once the checkout period was over. After that, I just decided to buy the book so I’d always have it with me for reference. I feel like I’m still finding new tidbits of information and texting pictures to my friend. It’s the book that keeps on giving!

Wow, I totally thought I’d have so much more to say about this book given how much I love it. It’s definitely become a staple in my collection, and really helps to ground me when I’m feeling out of whack. If you’re feeling a little lost, or are wanting to explore spirituality/holism/etc. a little bit more, I highly recommend this book. Emma encourages you to reach deep down into yourself so you can be the best you and I promise you that it really does work.
