by Max Lucado Rating 3.25/5 I just wrote a couple paragraphs about this book and my internet just blinked out on me. There's nothing more aggravating. Okay, so maybe there is, but when this happens it is definitely aggravating! Little do I feel like rewriting it. Suffice it to say Cure for the Common Life is a self-help book that I read for my f2f book club. It was okay, but I'm not big on self-help books.
