John S. Hall
Like many self-help books, Daily Negations can be kept by the toilet and read each morning or evening, depending on your personal habits. Or it could be kept by the bed, or incorporated into one’s daily prayer or meditation routine.
The book serves at least two functions. First, Daily Negations will show people who have a negative outlook on life that they are not alone. Second, Daily Negations can be used by (or given to) people whose attitude in life is too sunny, too optimistic, too full of boundless strength and hope. Such people can come to a more normal, realistic world view by daily consultation of Daily Negations.
