I'm working through this book for the third time. I appreciate the writer's willingness to put herself out there and acknowledge here own difficulties with SA/SP. She doesn't come across as cold and clinical, but rather, as someone who has been there and overcome her disorder. Plus, she's a good writer, which is certainly not always the case with self-help books.
I didn't like it. I thought it was pompous and there were too many lists with bullet points. The bullet points really annoyed me. It was like a freakin' PowerPoint presentation. The only thing I liked were the illustrations with the cute people in snowsuits. I wish everyone would walk around in snowsuits like the people in the book 'cause then we'd all be so cute and cuddly.
I'm not a big fan of this book. I'd agree that it is pretty tedious. If you want a similar book that, in my opinion is better-I'd suggest Dying of Embarassment. It basically outlines the same things, but in a less repetitive way.
