Review: It is really hard to review self-help books. They either resonate with you or they don’t, and the reasoning is usually deeply personal. For this reason, after finishing this book, my book club has decided to ban self-help books from being selected for future meetings.

This book did not resonate with me personally. I did think there were some valuable insights, and though I did agree with many of the points the author made, the whole book had an air of pretentiousness that did not sit well with me. It felt like the author was trying so hard to be authentic, that she instead came off as inauthentic. She overexplained her life decisions and although I am happy that she found happiness with her partner, it felt like she was trying to vindicate her actions through these long winded descriptions of their connection to one another.

I know other people enjoy her style of writing, but bottom-line is, I was not the right audience for this memoir.
