I really enjoyed this book, tears, laughter, so relatable.

Touched on a range of topics that I found relevant, looking at relationships, upbringing, connection, lonliness and even some useful thoughts about sharing life with a dog!

I thank Lane for her candid honesty, bravery and helping me with my own battle with being alone.

I got so inspired by this book, learnt a lot and got the hunger for more knowledge on a range of topics.

Although honest and at times confronting, this book gave me realistic hope and a bit of restores faith, in this sometimes not so wise species we are.

I'd love to start a Frazzled Cafe in Australia and look to open my own eco-village one day (one with domestic animals, which seems hard to find) and this book made me realise that people are doing it and succeeding.

Thanks for the good news Ruby.

So much great information, an absolute must read! I found this thought provoking and at times amusing very easy to listen to.

I felt like each chapter in this book told a short thought provoking story, which took a bit to get used to but was interesting enough.

But by about halfway I started feeling like, but what's your point? I found it hard to sink my teeth into.

I thought it would be an inspiring book, but for me, it just didn't quite get there.

It was thought provoking though and well read.

I've listened to and continue to listen to this book over and over and I get something new from it everytime and the lessons are weaving their way into my day to day life.

I don't say that this book is life changing lightly, I really believe it is.

Highly recommend.

Although this book may, at first, seem a little dry to some, it really is a fascinating book. If you find it dry, I urge you to perserve!

It gave me a great birdseye view on so many big topics. It brought both me clarity whilst also sparking curiosity in me to find out more.

Definitely recommend.

Unfortunately the message in this book was very church oriented which I didn't get from the description before purchase. It was hard to take anything much from it on that front.
I found the book quite basic.

Whats not to love!

Great book, I do also have the hardcopy, definitely worth having both. Amy Poehler never fails to meet the mark. Definitely recommend.

Sam Harris brings up some really interesting points to ponder over. I can't say I can get my head around it all, but that's not for the way the book is written, it's just a complicated topic.
Another good thing is that it's short, so listening a few times will be doable.
