As for all the haters out there who wrote mean reviews of this book personally judging Joy for her decision (and frankly her incredible courage!) to live her truth—I WILL be going through the reviews carefully when I get a chance, and flagging any hate speech I find. Passing judgement on an author is not a proper book review, and there is no room for hate on this forum. To be truly alive we each have to fully live our own truths, whether or not they match what society would like to be true about us. That's the point of this wonderful, wonderful book, which I couldn't recommend more highly!
At times I thoroughly enjoy the writing and at other times there were either too many details, or not enough. It just didn't flow as I would have hoped being written by an English professor. I wanted to understand more about her relationships with her friends, colleagues and children. I found it interesting how the last 1/3 of the book felt like it was not written by the same person and perhaps the spiritual truth was that she was a different person.
That being said, I gave it 4 stars, because it is important to read.
