i'll read any book barbara sher writes; she has my lifetime guarantee on that. she's good at motivating me, and i get something new out of each book. this one had some spot-on, useful observations based on evolutionary psychology and the reasons people behave the way they do at various stages in life. those were mixed in with some stuff that i don't buy at all, about the "inner child" way of looking at psychology - the way everything we do is supposedly colored by the tragedy of losing our parents' full and undivided attention after infancy, and how their choices interfered with our ability to become ourselves, and how the inner child wants all that to be resolved. however, despite disagreeing with some of her assumptions, i still agree with most of her conclusions - especially the point of the book, which is that it's never too late to add more of what you want for yourself into your life. this one's a keeper.

Barbara Sher Books
Hi,

I have to agree. I love everything she writes. She's one of the authors I'd like to lock in a room and not let come out until she finishes her next book.

I read Wishcraft back in 1979, and it changed my whole way of thinking about careers, as well as my whole career direction.

I only wish we could hear her speak more, but that seems rare these days. Once in a while she'll post a workshop or retreat on her website (www.BarbaraSher.com), so it always pays to look.

Thanks,
Jenn
