I begin reading this book and was very impressed with the honest and openess of Merilynn Grodecki. But for me as a book overall it was too lengthy and ended up becoming repetitive. I am not saying that I did not enjoy the book because I did but I do not feel a grew a lot over my time spent reading it. When I read books for spiritual growth, I take notes and really delve into them. This book was hard for me to do that with.
