I absolutely love this book! The author shares personal experiences which evolved into tips for recovery, but most importantly, life skills. The layout is very organized. The book is visually appealing and interactive. There are places for notes throughout, which I love — it makes reading a personalized journey.
The author has an excellent way of conveying her message. This is not a labored read. The entries are short, but profound. I could sit and read it at length, or choose a page day by day.
I highly suggest this book to everyone! We can all benefit from it.
