Comments from a reader

I was reading your book while in bed. I had a pencil out, and marked and made notes on the book... Well, this morning I had to get up at 4am to work, and It was UNREAL...because the things you wrote about (and I've only just completed chapter 2) HAD DESCRIBED ME SO EXACTLY! ... remembering how my jaw nearly dropped everytime I read more and more and you described me, in a way that NO One has ever understood.

I thought I was "UNIQUE and the only one experiencing" certain things... Now I feel so much more hopeful ... now I can FOCUS on the SELF Esteem issues ...

God Bless!
