Too self-celebratory, but definitely some wise advice.

I didn't like the narrators voice nor the positive affirmations nor the end bits of other people's stories. I could get on a blog and read other people's stories. It's a little too corny and overly treasures and values oneself. It feels a little over self-involves at times

I like her advice on writing. I enjoyed how she explained grief, phases vs stages. Her no contact rule is a must. I found her explanations of not explaining yourself more than three time helpful, as well as a how manipulative people will continue to attempt to manipulate and drive you to their will.

Good information but a patronizing tone

This book has some useful information in it, especially the emphasis on NC (no contact with your ex) and I did find parts of the text helpful. My issue is that the author tends to talk down to the reader: "Do this." "Don't do that." "Grow up." And the narrator really emphasizes this bossy tone. Also, I didn't find the narrator's voice very appealing. She sounded like Mrs. Roper from "Three's Company" (a sit-com from the 70's & 80's).

Made me feel WORSE!!!

Any additional comments?

This book somehow made me feel even worse about my rather horrible breakup I felt totally patronised, like i was made out to be a child for feeling upset. Silly book, really did not help me.
