It’s too all over the place for me
Reviewed in the United States on November 2, 2017
My therapist recommended this book to me, and I of course read it. The author states that she’s not a writer and her profession is a licensed therapist. It’s overwhelming how many times she repeats the same concept over and over throughout the entire book! Not only that, I felt like I was reading a paper that had a word count minimum, like she was just adding extra words to make the book longer. She keeps saying she’ll address this in a later chapter. If we’re on the subject right now why not finish your tboughts on the topic instead of it being all over the place. I just read it for the second time to see if I was just being too harsh the first time, but actually it was worse the second time. I am married and have a son, and there’s so much about looking for a partner, I already found mine so that didn’t apply to me. The parenting section was all common sense to me so I honestly didn’t have any “ah-ha” moments. Basically the only thing I got out of this book was that my mom is a narcissist, which I knew from countless hours of research and therapy. There’s a website specifically for daughters of mothers with narcissistic personality disorder and I got so much more from that than I did from this book. I’m passing it along to a friend and hoping she gets more out of it. I hate writing negative reviews but I just hate that I spent time and money on this book.
