Awesome book to keep on the coffee table
Reviewed in the United States on September 14, 2020
This is a good book to keep on the coffee table and randomly open to a page in the morning or before bed for inspiration. Cheryl Strayed doesn't pull any punches. There are a lot of things I'd call hard truths, so if you're looking for sugarcoated positive thinking messages, this isn't it. Personally I find her no nonsense approach a breath of fresh air when so much self help content is steeped in toxic positivity.
For some reason the entire first page is one star reviews calling the book trash because the language isn't child friendly. There are a few swear words sprinkled here and there, but while it can be jarring, it's nowhere near excessive. If your worst problem is having to look at a word that starts with F every 20 pages or so, I highly recommend that you read Me And White Supremacy by Layla Saad instead of this.
