Ugh, I hated this book. I should have know, I hated EPL too. I really wanted to like EPL, I figured maybe I was missing something because everyone else really loved it and I just didn't get it because I'm not into meditation (which bored the crap out of me in that book.) So my thinking was, everyone loves EPL, maybe it was the content I didn't get and Gilbert is actually an interesting author which would lead me to believe I would love her book about marriage considering I have a degree in marriage counseling. WRONG! I hated this book more than EPL! The author annoyed me throughout her book and her view on marriage was so whiny, give me a break. I do not recommend this, or EPL, to anyone! Run away!
