Save your money, unless you enjoy bad writing. Sounds like an adventure but she should have hired a ghost writer.
I read “50 Dates in 50 States” over the course of one weekend – stealing moments to read as much as I could when I was forced to put it down to drive or talk to family and friends. From the moment I finished the book I felt the urge to start again from the beginning, so that I could consider more carefully the principles that Brocklehurst developed to change her life for the better. “50 Dates” is a lively - and frequently very funny - journey of self-discovery across America, and Brocklehurst deftly navigates the intersection between memoir, travelogue and self-help book. Even though Brocklehurst’s voice is often playful, what lingers after you finish reading the book is a sense her wisdom – an insight developed the hard way, during difficult times, while suffering from terrible grief. “50 Dates” is a must read for anyone who has suffered loss – or is lost themselves. I pick up “50 Dates” whenever I need to remind myself that we all have the power and responsibility to follow our dreams and pursue what we love – even if they take us halfway across the world.
