I couldn't bring myself to stop reading... It made me laugh out loud and it made me gasp with disbelief... The writing is addictively, breathtakingly great -- Viv Groskop * Observer * Might be one of the most profound yet enjoyable books you will read this summer... Profane, funny and incredibly moving * Irish Times * These pieces are nothing short of dynamite... Here at Salon we're reading the columns with boxes of tissue and raised fists of solidarity, shaking our heads with awe and amusement * Salon * Charming, idiosyncratic, luminous, profane... Sugar is the ultimate advice columnist for the internet age... She shines out amid the sea of fakeness * New Republic * Strayed's worldview - her empathy, her nonjudgment, her belief in the fundamental logic of people's emotions and experiences despite occasional evidence to the contrary - begins to seep into readers' consciousness in such a way that they can apply her generosity of spirit to their own and, for a few hours at least, become better people... courageous and engaging stuff. * New York Times *.
