About The Book

Open The Cabinet of Calm to find a comforting word that’s equal to your troubles.

Beginning with the griefs or discomforts we all feel on difficult days, Paul Anthony Jones offers us a matching linguistic remedy: fifty-one soothing words for troubled times.

These kind words – alongside their definitions and their stories – will calm and inspire; comfort and delight; and provide fresh hope. Written with a trademark lightness of touch, The Cabinet of Calm shows us that we’re not alone. Someone else has felt like this before, and so there’s a word to help, whatever the challenge.

So much more than a book of words, The Cabinet of Calm will soothe your soul and ease your mind.
