Loving yourself is all about energy. As humans we devote a great deal of our energy through our time, thoughts and emotions to love. We read about it, watch movies and shows about it, dream about it, hope for it to bless our lives, feel like something critically important is lacking when it doesn't, and at the very least keep a sharp eye out for it when its missing. Too often we look to someone else to fulfill our love and crash and burn when relationships end, or fail to live up to our fantasies of what we thought they should be.

I really enjoyed this little book. It brought up many thought provoking reasons and benefits to love yourself that I had not even considered - will be listening again to take notes the 2nd time. I had hoped he would have discussed and included HOW to love oneself.
Looking forward to next in series. :)

Wow, saw the reviews and and had to try it. From the beginning I got sucked in and like another reviewer you almost start rooting for him and then catch yourself 😬

It scares me a little how someone can justify almost any behavior and it has a bit of logic if you are standing to close to it. In any case, it was a good read and good writing. I couldn't wait to keep listening.

I like to save my 5 stars for the really epic books that move me...The Help, Memoirs of a Geisha, etc. but I felt like I was doing it an injustice I surprisingly really liked this book, couldn't stop listening and felt I was getting a bit of an education in technology. It's sci-fi I think , not my usual choice but I took a chance because of its high rating. It didn't disappoint. I am only sorry there is not another book in the series.

Audie Award, Audiobook of the Year, 2016. Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

What the two books have in common are the crazy birches! The book was good but not great. When I read Gone girl, I hated it but could not stop listening...like a crazy car crash you can't make yourself look away. This book was good but it takes some time (at least for me) to get yourself situated and comfortable because you finally realize it's being narrated from 3 different perspectives/women.

Spoiler....
There is not a single decent person within the main characters and hard to root for the sadly pathetic main character, it's weird that she is the good guy.
