this is a memoir and it is definitely written for women, by a woman, but, what McMillan has to say is in many ways universal to humans. and her very journalistic ability to cut through to the raw and often painful truth of a situation is what makes this book extraordinarily readable. i don't know if i would go so far as to run around recommending it for all of the men i know, but it certainly isn't limited to the female audience. it is, i'd also like to mention, written for someone at least familiar with modern American pop culture, as the book references everything from Britney Spears to the band Pavement, Monopoly to Axe body spray, the website Hot or Not, and the Obamas. it is very current and relevant and i found that this made it even more applicable in so many ways, but on the flip side of that, the book might estrange some audiences.
"I am doing all kinds of things to "get over it," not realizing that there is no getting over it. There's only getting through it."
at the opening of the book, Tracy McMillan finds herself married and divorced three times, alone as a single mother, making life as complicated as possible and never quite getting it right.Read more ›
Where does love come from? How do we learn to give it in a healthy way. Why do we keep going down the wrong road? Through diving into Tracy's hunger for answers, you will find yourself seeking your own. I identified with her desire to love and be loved. Tracy writes, "It's like I have two opposing parts of myself: one that nurtures, and one that destroys." I LOVE the revelation that the birth of her son was all part of a master plan. She writes,"...My boy child's is going to bestow upon me one of the greatest gifts I've ever imagined wanting. A gift I don't even know I need. He's going to teach me to love men." This is one of those books that you will never forget.
