Dr. Cloud gives nine insightful ideas from “Hate Well” to “Play Fair” that reveal to us the truth about our fears, our hopes, our relationships, and above all, about the potential in all of us to grow spiritually. If we sincerely want to “get life right” and quit repeating the same mistakes over and over again, 9 Things You Simply Must Do provides the practical guidance we need to live life to its fullest—every moment.
