While I appreciate Ms. Powell's willingness to share the intimate details of her life and marriage, I found myself hating her self-deprecating manner. Several times throughout the book I felt that all she needed was to get over herself, find a good therapist and a couples therapist and get her life back on track. However, I think she is the type of person that thrives on that kind of drama in her life. I like her writing style and the way she approaches the material, but hope that her next book is more informative and less "self-discovery".
