Publisher's Summary

An inspiring guide that teaches us how adversity can be an opportunity to make us into stronger, better people. 

Discover how to rebuild your life after it is broken, repair the cracks, heal emotional wounds, and embrace imperfection. Written by a psychologist, Tomas Navarro, this book explores the Japanese notion of Kintsugi, the ancient Japanese art of mending broken ceramics with gold, leaving visible the repair as a symbol of fragility, strength and beauty. Using this method as a metaphor, we will learn how to rebuild our lives after they have been broken, build resilience and heal emotional wounds. Tomas will help us to understand the role played by adversity in our lives, how we can react in the face of it and the simple steps we can take to confront and overcome life's troubles. Kintsugi proves that happiness can be found again, often against all the odds, and that a traumatic or painful experience does not have to be the undoing of you.

A self help book disguised as a Kintsugi narrative. An absolute waste of time and money.

I hope I save some poor souls from reading this book before they have the unfortunate event of wasting money on it.

This should have been called “ramblings of a man that has no idea what Kintsugi is”.

An absolute waste of time.
The thin references to Kintsugi throughout the book leave one no closer to understanding the art and exceptionally deep and mystical understanding of Kintsugi.

If you literally need someone to explain,
In the most condescending way, the basic constructs of human emotion and to tell you “ I know you are hurting” 200 times as if it’s a dialogue, then this is the book for you.

If you have an ounce of social awareness and EQ... save yourself the trouble.
