Strayed's worldview - her empathy, her nonjudgment, her belief in the fundamental logic of people's emotions and experiences despite occasional evidence to the contrary - begins to seep into readers' consciousness in such a way that they can apply her generosity of spirit to their own and, for a few hours at least, become better people... courageous and engaging stuff. --New York Times
Charming, idiosyncratic, luminous, profane... Sugar is the ultimate advice columnist for the internet age... She shines out amid the sea of fakeness --New Republic
These pieces are nothing short of dynamite... Here at Salon we're reading the columns with boxes of tissue and raised fists of solidarity, shaking our heads with awe and amusement --Salon

Principali recensioni dei clienti
Cheryl Strayed scrive molto bene secondo il mio parere personale, consiglierei questo libro (ho poi letto anche gli altri suoi e visto il film Wild, mi sono tutti piaciuti molto, anche il film).
Una bella scoperta

Strayed’s ability to elicit empathy and peace in even some of the darkest of stories is incredibly moving. At many points in the book I came up with a lake of epiphanies, and reinforced some pre-existing ones. I want to share them, but I’ll just lunge the few that made the tuning forks in my mind purr:
1. Guilt and shame, while closely inhibited, are very different things.
2. Sexual anxiety and jealousy are often guised as extreme monogamy
3. The questions you most often don’t want to ask are the ones that most often need answering.
4. We control very little. Thoughts, emotions, even logic and reason are unsolicited conditions that are ever changing.
5. Beliefs lag behind reality
You will laugh. You will cry; definitely cry. Make sure you keep a box of Sham-Wows nearby.
Why should I read this?
It will make you less of a bug buzzing intolerant poop-stick. It will make you realize your problems are not special. You will, without doubt, come across a letter that sounds like it was written by you, maybe slightly more or less extreme, and you will feel a part of yourself get soul-crushed and healed as you read the very sentences. It will show that you and the people around you are okay. It will bring you closer to the answer of what love is. It will make you question what love is. Wait.
How do I apply this to my life?
Empathy is the pipeline of trust, connection, and understanding in our relationships. You’ll nurture a greater sense of that with this book.
Short and sweet, I have given this book to every young woman that I know, starting with my daughters. It has some language in it that some might find offensive, but it didn't bother me at all. I have two grown daughters and two daughter in laws; all have the book and love it. They give it as gifts as well. One of my daughters got into a conversation with an Uber driver, and upon returning home, ran upstairs and gave her book to the driver.
It is advice that is street wise, solid, clear and gritty. It says what all us moms want to say but can't quite drive the point home. It is also a great read for those of us raising daughters and heading into Chapter 2 of our own lives.
Just for fun, here are my two favorite quotes.... "Be brave enough to break your own heart" and " I choose Van Gogh". Buy the book, look up the quotes, and read it. You will be glad you did...at any age.
Oh, where do I start about this little treasure of a book? I laughed out loud, felt intrigued, gained perspective of others in situations I'd never been sympathetic to, and left smears of mascara on most of the pages. The book is so moving and meaningful; it caught me completely off guard. Elephant tears were running down my face as I finished the last pages on an airplane. I closed the book, then flipped back to page one to start it over again. Rinse. Wash. Repeat.
Cheryl Strayed is a beautiful writer, and this book embodies her strong, positive, loving, compassionate spirit. I've purchased several other copies for friends who I thought could also relate to her eloquent and fantastically blunt writing. Even if you can't relate to some of the questions posed, there are so many things to glean from her life stories and little nuggets of wisdom and advice. I can't recommend it enough!
Cheryl Strayed has become one of the most thoughtful writers on the human condition. She has done some deep thinking and soul searching, and has a gift for getting her life and thoughts on the page. I'm not a New York Times reviewer, so all I can say is that I'm grateful there are people like Strayed, who write so well and share so beautifully.
