I wish I had know this was a book about dealing with depression before I started it. Maybe my expectations would have been different and thus my feelings about the book would have been different. She had some good points and a 'down home' voice to her story but all in all I thought it was somewhat disjointed in its presentation.
Not the kind of book I normally read but it resonated with me at this point in time on a number of levels as I begin training for a tri and am doing a bit of self reflection. It's not a self-help book filled with gagging Christian platitudes but does stir some spiritual introspection.
