I have read LOTS of books on this subject and, frankly, didn't expect much from such a short book, but it has the MOST relevant and comprehensive description and plan of action for women involved with extremely difficult men. I assumed that I would find her other title, _Self-Centered and Narcissistic Men_, but this was the one that shed NEW LIGHT on a situation I have been tirelessly researching for several years.
I tried these titles because they were inexpensive, but I didn't expect much. I was VERY pleasantly surprised & intend to buy others.
Byron Katie didn't save my life; she shows me how to save my own life every single day.
This is one of the better self-help books I've encountered. Don't worry that it is a "lightweight" on content -- it is well organized and STRAIGHT to the point.
She is compelling because she shares personal experiences in addition to providing her experience with clients in a professional setting. She is clearly an advocate for women. The reading can be halting in places, but nothing distracting enough to mar the excellent information.
This book really helped me through a tough time. The practical exercises were funny & useful -- there is value in knowing that you aren't the only one who has been driven crazy at a relationship's end.
I can often summon the narrators' voices in a difficult time telling me I'm a "super-fox" and that he's NOT COMING BACK. I'm an educated person, but they can be my break-up buddies until my own self-esteem kicks in.
I enjoy the seemingly threads Gladwell expertly gathers while telling a story as smooth as a novel.
