There were definitely times when I wanted to breakdown about my own life while reading this book. I wanted to shake my fist and curse the powers that be for being cruel tricksters for playing us all in one long painful joke. However, what do you do at the end of the joke? Laugh. This book inspires you want to laugh too and to realize the futility of hanging on to every personal injustice that has been been committed against you; likely you are no better than the perpetrator, and he/she is no worse from you.
