it was ok
Read in April, 2011

When I read the blurb, I thought, "Wow, this is so relevant." When I started reading it, I thought, okay, it talks about the Madoff Ponzi victims, i.e. Roth. I can't put my finger on it, but somehow the book feels like it was meant to comfort Roth and Roth alone. She does share some useful insights here and there, but they are so few and eclipsed by mundane "revelations" such as wandering into a store selling $800 dresses and then realizing that buying them wouldn't really mean anything or something to that effect. I just couldn't relate to her stories. I can't help but think that the author lost all her life savings to Madoff and is now taking advantage by publishing this book to gain some of it back.

John From your comments, I think you missed the points she was making. The $800 dresses had to do with how much she valued shopping, not that she could "afford" them.
