This book can get a little dry at times, but there were enough moments of wisdom and illumination that it kept me going. The book has given me some good food for thought about the morality of selfishness in terms of caring for yourself as much as you would care for others and the realization that you can't avoid hurt in all situations and that sometimes choice means that someone gets hurt. And it's okay to choose yourself as the person you protect and care for even if it means someone else hurts. And lastly, that you are responsible for yourself and your decisions and that responsibility and empowerment will ultimately make you stronger and happier.
