Reader recommendation: Help Thanks Wow

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

Help Thanks Wow: The Three Essential Prayers by Anne Lamott is a little book that explores prayer, especially simple prayer, with great honesty and insight. Her writing is very powerful, and textured by fresh and unusual use of words. It made me think in depth about how I pray.
