I've read quite a few negative reviews about this book but I really liked it. I think it helps if you have an open mind when you read it to fully appreciate the story Liz shares. I disagree with what many have said about her being self absorbed etc. She's only human and that was the whole point of going on the journey.... to find herself. (Plus the all expenses paid cash advance but I can let that slide because of the witty result of the book).It's very spiritual (in a positive thinking, self belief, inner peace kind of way) but if you give it a chance there is a lot to learn from reading it.
