Feels like a bunch of words scribbled on a page, again and again.

Nothing I read in this book empowered me to tune in with my authentic self. It feels like a long list of here's my experiences of the right way to be in relationships with others. The excerpts are short, dry, and wholly unhelpful. Rather than bringing me to a place of understanding the struggles and mechanics of connection I feel like I've wasted time, money, and paper by buying this book.
I do not mean to say that this book does not have use for many, but for me I was looking for a book that empowers me to feel connected with others in a meaningful way. A book brings about introspective insight into meaningful connection with others. A book with purpose and insight into the human condition. Unfortunately this book lacks human spirit. None of the rawness of emotions are present. It's a frustrating read of dry dialogue.
I came to this book with expectations that it would bring me to find meaningful connections with other people in the world. Clearly I came to the wrong place. I don't mean to diminish the value this book offers, but it's value to me and the way the title and overview are presented landed for me as a book on meaningful connections. I feel misled.
