For anyone wondering how to get past heartbreaks, career defeats, and other soul-crushing events, Louden (The Woman’s Comfort Book; Women’s Retreat Book) suggests turning the question of “why bother?” around to find reasons to go on and plan the next step. She presents a six-stage approach to assist readers in moving from feeling envious to wishing others well, self-judging to welcoming all experiences, and dithering to fully committing. Louden’s message is backed with numerous examples, pertinent quotes, self-assessments, and links to more resources and information.
VERDICT Ideal for those who feel stuck in a negative spiral and wish to move forward.
