I tried. This book had so many excellent reviews. I just don’t understand. I was following nicely about lobsters and posture. It made sense. I ignored the tone, which was borderline yelling. I ignored the sweeping generalizations. I ignored the biblical passages that started to overtake every paragraph in a quasi word-salad way. I’ve studied the Bible since I could read. I know when something is off. I can only compare this book to a very long sermon, where I’m trying to follow along, and derive some wisdom. As the hours wear on, everyone is shaking their heads in agreement and I just want to go home. All I could hear were illogical statements that left zero room for elasticity and nuance. I am a human being. We all are. The author seems to set that aside and preach on...and on...and on. I felt alienated, confused and finally could take no more. I got up and left the church that this book pretends not to be. I could not have disliked this self-help book more. Never again.
