Whatever you do, don't listen to the audiobook. The female voices are made by the older, white, male narrator. They all sound like Robin Williams' "female" voice in Mrs. Doubtfire.

Making amends for past slights or those things that niggle at you in the middle of the night is an interesting and admirable concept. I just wish the author was a bit less self-absorbed. This seemed too much like the male version of Eat, Pray, Love. I wonder if he, too, received a hefty book advance before starting his journey.
