By peeling back the curtain of her syndicated advice column, Amy Dickinson reveals much of the inspiration and motivation that has fueled her calling. Through a series of linked essays, this moving narrative picks up where her earlier memoir left off.
Exploring central themes of romance, death, parenting, self-care, and spiritual awakening, this touching and heartfelt homage speaks to all who have faced challenges in the wake of life's twists and turns. From finding love in middle age to her storied experience with step-parenting to overcoming disordered eating to her final moments spent with her late mother, Dickinson's trademark humorous tone delivers punch and wit that will empower, entertain, and heal.

Not funny, & got old after awhile
Seriously, she’s an advice columnist, marries a religious climate change denier after a brief courtship, rather than let his kids grow up & adjust to the idea, and doesn’t make sure her 18 year old stepdaughters are using birth control ? I listened a long time but couldn’t stand her angst anymore.
