I have a copy by my couch and choose to read it when I mute commercials. Just the right enough amount of time for most of them!
I’m thinking of getting a copy to put in my purse to have in the car and read at railroad stops, locked in traffic, etc.
It is excellent for those times. Several years ago, we gave our son a copy on cassette (I said it was several years ago!) for use in the car. Of course, it’s available on CD now. I think, apart from Holy scripture, The Imitation of Christ is the greatest book written for spiritual guidance.
