heartbreaking in the way scripture is taken out of context; yet like the thief on the cross who knows but The Omniscient Jesus if Peter made peace with The Creator before he returned to Him?

* one caveat- having to give credit where credit is due, to be reminded thru this book that olive oil is the only oil that doesn't go rancid.

* 2nd caveat: this book is enlightening in the nature of chewing the chicken and spitting out the choke.


Ultimately, I am satisfied that I read this piece however, not fo

This is a great book for reading straight through, and for picking up from time to time for a jolt of inspiration. It's not as sappy as the promo line suggests. I enjoyed the frequent quotations, for noting the breadth and depth of love, its permutations across time, place and between people of differing relationship. Here's a few of my favorites:

"I am two fools, I know,

Do you love yourself?

When posed this question, I really had to stop and think about it. The question, that is, not the answer. I had to, because the concept of "loving oneself" had never occurred to me before.

Thankfully, this book is full of good practical advice on loving oneself, and also why exactly that's a good idea (hint: it makes life way more fun).

This book isn't just for people who are lonely. It's for everyone, because we could all do with a bit extra self love.

Delightful pulp self-help book, easy to read and inspiring to apply. It might seem light and fluffy, but in fact its humour pierces into very important aspects of coming into selfhood, without sounding too paternal or academic. Relationship with self, assessment of natural proclivities, social transactions and contracts. It was my bible in adolescent years and a book I recommend to friends who struggle with that ever evolving sense of self.

The first half was alright. Kinda lost me on the second half. It seemed like the author got distracted and never came back to his mail point. 2.5 stars
