This was recommended by a coworker who told me it was excellent. It only took me a few hours to read because it was so engaging. She is very descriptive and you could see what her homes looked like. I thought she was very brave to put her whole life out there for everyone to see. She tells the good with the bad.

I read this book to understand what my dad will be/is experiencing with a colostomy bag. I was expecting more nitty-gritty and less personal history, but it was still an interesting and informative read. Not a page turner, but I still recommended it to my mother.

What a life this woman has led. I heard her speak in person, which is why I bought the book. Great humor; utter honesty about a difficult subject.

Seems like it could have been a bit more focused, but flow didn't bog me down.
