Inspiring stories. I already have learned much of what I saw in the DVD but that is not a critique of the DVD. It was just not mind-blowing information for myself. If most of us here in North America subscribe to the money/possessions make you happy (which I doubt) then the DVD may be surprising. However, most of us will either already know and/or personally felt many of these ideas explained in this DVD. I do give the DVD a thumbs up because I always enjoy seeing personal stories of strength, adversity and happiness.....
