Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[A] clear, honest, and practical guide . . . A refreshing voice."
—Publishers Weekly

"Insightful . . . Once you start turning the pages, this book can either: 1) make you angry because you feel you've been 'found out'; or 2) prompt a smile as you quietly identify with a category or two. . . . [Bushong's] categories aren't pithy. They are solid guides for contemplation for people who want to learn and grow. . . . This is an honest book."
—The Rocky Mountain News
