Synopsis: the author is feeling lost in life. She has the desire to get up and change something she says she felt the pull of some unnamed vortex , but she's not sure what. She decides to go to the Middle East to find answers.

The Internet’s about to eat me alive.

The insights into the people and culture are interesting, but I'm not convinced she found what she was looking for. She finally had enough and I enjoyed reading about the people she met in the Middle East, but I didn't really connect with the rest of what she was writing. She finally had enough and just as quickly as she was sucked in, the vortex spit her out and she landed back home.

Every time she tried to relate her experience back to the topic of her book loving yourself , it felt disconnected and that she was trying to hard to make it work. I thought a better title would be something like, "My Travels in the Middle East" since that was really all I got out of it. So, after having decided I liked some of what I read by Melody Beattie I wanted to work my way through the bulk of her writing. She was an interesting writer, some of her ideas resonated with me, and I felt like at the very least I could learn something from each of her books.

They weren't necessarily life-changing, but they were interesting and helping me to reframe some of the ways I view the world and my relationships with others. That's always a good thing, right?

And was curious to read what she had to say about it all. Rather than it being a self-help book, though, this book was more of a travel memoir interspersed with clumsy additions of mystical experiences that ultimately didn't go anywhere. It read more like a first draft than a finished manuscript, and I was quite frankly surprised by just how shoddy the bulk of the editing job was.

13 Steps to Achieving Total Self-Love

At no point did the book truly feel cohesive to me, and rarely do I find when reading anything other than the first book of any given author. I wanted to get more out of this book than I did.

  • I came away from it with the knowledge that everyone has their own difficulties, and that a bit of empathy is generally a good thing. That, however, isn't necessarily a surprising message and it's one better presented through the soap-opera of The Outsiders than this travel memoir.

    So, yes, I'm still rather confused by this book overall, especially the ending. It didn't really do much of anything for me. Aug 29, Sally McRogerson rated it it was ok Shelves: non-fiction. I read this a few months ago, partly because I've read some of her other work, partly because it relates to my clients and partly because it relates to me. It felt like the ramblings of a self-indulgent, self-obsessed middle-aged woman, or an expense account trip in which she had discovered nothing of note but needed to claim the expenses anyway.

    I wasn't enchanted but I thought I may be missing something so I'm reading it again, more slowly this time and reflecting on what I've read. I'd love t I read this a few months ago, partly because I've read some of her other work, partly because it relates to my clients and partly because it relates to me. I'd love to say that finishing the book for the second time made everything fall into place but the truth is that it didn't. There were a few bits that I can work into a meditation for clients and I think I've gleaned those bits to justify having spent so much time reading this twice!

    Feb 22, Mitzi Clark rated it did not like it. This was not what I expected at all. Feb 06, Mai added it Shelves: dislikes. Awful book, no meaning at all. Feb 24, Julie Pixie rated it it was ok Shelves: self-help. Oct 02, Jill rated it really liked it Shelves: i-own-this. I enjoy Melody's writings. This book kind of left me wanting more compared with some of her other writings. But, I appreciate the struggles she's shared.

    Sep 11, Chris rated it did not like it Shelves: non-fiction. Very disappointing. More a memoir about her trip to Egypt and some of her new-Age type experiences in a pyramid than what the title suggests. Jul 16, Helga rated it it was ok. I read this book really quick, but it turns out the title was simply misleading. Overall, the book was.. I don't even know what to say to this.

    It could be an enjoyable read for people who prefer autobiographical spiritual journeys, probably for people who are just beginning their journey, but for me, this was just too messy. I personally didn't learn anything new from this book, and I give it 2 stars just because a part of me is glad the author seems to have enjoyed herself through the experiences, but that's it. May 02, Joc rated it did not like it Shelves: self-help. No idea how she could have come up with a less accurate name for the book. It is mostly a stream of consciousness about her exotic travels and mostly what she did not find on her journey.

    This is definitely not a self-help book. It seems like a story justifying her "business" trip to write this book. Don't bother. Aug 08, Susan rated it liked it Shelves: melody-beattie. This book was very interesting as a travelogue of the trip the author took to the Middle East several years ago, the experiences she had and the people she met.

    There wasn't much in there in the way of practical advice on how to stop being mean to yourself, though. I loved Codependent No More the first book I read by this author and did find a lot of practical advice in that one. Feb 02, Molly Wolchansky rated it liked it. I enjoyed the story in this book. I would probably rate it 3.

I didn't love the lay out if this book There comes a point in all our lives when we simply have to find a way to like ourselves I love the way Melody uses her travels to weave the story of her journey.
