My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My timing on reading this book couldn’t have been more ironic, sad, poignant….pick an adjective. My best friend went through a horrible breakup while I was reading this – one that was unexpected to him, caught him by surprise and devastated his heart. I went into this book – as a straight, happily married woman – expecting to read it as an outsider. I finished it feeling enlightened, hopeful and filled with knowledge that will not only help my friend but can also help me in my own life. Despite my happy marriage, I’ve suffered from low self-esteem my entire life. There are things that I can utilize from this book that can help me to learn how to love myself more. This is not a book for gay or straight men or women. This is a book for everyone.
