I was intrigued by this book as soon as I flipped through a few pages. In the first part of the book, when the author is focusing more on her own story and what helped her, I found myself putting bookmarks in every few pages for interesting ideas or potential resources. The first part of the book was pretty well organized and balanced the author's history with how this applies to the reader on your "hero's journey". About halfway through the book it seemed very unorganized and all over the place. She no longer seemed to be on any sort of path, and definitely not a "hero's journey." I think I'm mostly open to alternative medicine and philosophies, but what she was exploring seemed more and more "out there", and when she started talking about being able to bend spoons with her mind, she lost all credibility with me. The only reason I finished the book is because I was curious to find out what happened in her life. I'm glad she's happier in her life but I cannot see her as someone I want to take advice from. I thought that the book had a lot of self-promotion and that it feels like she tried to write an autobiography and self-help book at the same time, and failed at both.
