Few songs have inspired a nation as did Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope you Dance." It affirms life and challenges you to live fully, joyously and with abandon. The companion book published in 2001 perfectly captured the message of the song and, with 1.7 million copies sold, became one of the best selling books of this decade. So much so that the book now stands alone and the message of the book transcends the original market of people who loved the song. This new edition has a fresh new cover and a lower price and does not include the companion CD.
