I am in the business of helping people deal with loss and how to move past losses( seems the point of this book) in a healthy way.
I heard the author on NPR as she was discussing her book. So, naturally, I bought it to read on my Nook. I really think long and hard before I buy books these days because so many of them are not really worth the paper they are written on.
For me, this last sentence pertains to this book. How I wish I could return it.
I think I am on page 100 and it has taken me weeks to get this far. I now only read the book when I can't sleep at night and it helps me get to sleep because the content does not stir me at all.
The author makes assumptions about people's experience of home or their childhood that does not describe most people I see in my practice.
She goes on and on and on and on( almost just liking the sound of her words) and I am now wondering what the point is she is trying to make.
If I had the book in Hard back, I would donate it now. At this point, I think I will do myself a favor and just delete if from my Nook. I actually tried to contact the Author about 2 weeks into the read to ask her if the book got better. Of course, there was no way to contact her. I would say do not get this book
instead buy the book, THE GRIEF RECOVERY HANDBOOK BY JOHN JAMES AND RUSSELL FRIEDMAN, which is the best book I have ever read on loss and how to heal it. I should not have strayed from this tiny classic. As a therapist and minister, I do try to find the best books that will help my clients and will help me help them and also books that will help me as well because I am an eternal student of truth and growth.
This book does not help me in any way. Do not buy this book!
