i loved this book so much that i had to give it to a friend at work who i know was having some personal issues and loves shopping so i knew she would love this book. you glance at the title and think 'ok this is totally a fluff book and can't possibly offer me any type of 'learning'
experience,' but then you start reading and notice you start seeing the authors points are valid such as if you see something in a store and want it, but aren't sure if you like it or not...walk away and come back later! i really felt drawn to this one cause often we feel like we have to deal with life's problems and issues right now...but the truth is alot of time you don't have to ...you have time to think it over and decide...and often taking that time will keep you from having to deal with alot of irritation and agony later on

I absolutley love this book! Whenever I am needing some retail therapy and I don't have any money to actually do that I grab this book. I have highlighted inspiring qoutes throughout the whole book!<BR/>I keep it in my nightstand drawer and have occasionally put it in my car.<BR/>(To help avoid going shopping after a bad day at work.)<BR/>I have given this book to many of my other shopaholic friends and they love it too!Was this review helpful?

I found this book on the clearence table, and after a quick read fell in love with it. Reading Retail Therapy like holding a mirror up to myself, after reading it I better understood my own shopping habits. The author is funny but not annoying, and she has a gift for narration.I'm lending this book to all my friends.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book is a little gem. I was surprised to find it filled with insights that really do apply to life. I laughed at the section on men and shopping, recognized myself in the story about a jean jacket, and cried a little over the story of the author's mother who refinished a piece of furniture to recover from her own grief. I'm giving this book to several shop-aholics that I know because I think it really will help them without preaching at them. This book shows how you can shop and how to do it simply. No need to fill your closests with too much.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I was surprised that a book about shopping was so wise and funny. I recognized myself. This is a book that makes the point so well that we can learn about ourselves if we pay attention and with awareness we can make our shopping trips meaningful and fun. the section on the difference between men and women shopping was so true.Was this review helpful?
