I must admit, I'm feeling a fair bit of chagrin at reading this book, or any book of the same vein. I honestly don't know why. Is it the overly girlie cover? A bit rich coming from a blogger who's template screams pink at the moment. The term "sassy"? Or perhaps it's the mild, niggling sense of failure underneath it all? Whatever it is, it's making me extremely uncomfortable.
I will, however, concede that this discomfort could be a good thing. Surely the unease can only stem from the fact that I'm facing up and acknowledging things about myself that I need to change?
If I look past the author's promise of being my best friend and the "you go, girlfriend" type of encouragements, "The Single Woman's Sassy Survival Guide to Letting Go & Moving On" isn't only a mouthful, it is - at its core - a pretty good guide to getting over your hang ups and getting on with your life. It's not just a how-to-get-over-your-ex book. It talks about accepting the reality of your "stuck" situations - such as settling for a dead-end job, or a friendship that you may have outgrown - and the reasons why it might be a good idea to get out of those situations.
Have you read any books that sound similar to this? What did you think of it?
