Description
National Best SellerFrom the best-selling author of Wild, a collection of quotes—drawn from the wide range of her writings—that capture her wisdom, courage, and outspoken humor, presented in a gift-sized package that's as irresistible to give as it is to receive. Around the world, thousands of people have found inspiration in the words of Cheryl Strayed, who in her three prior books and in her "Dear Sugar" columns has shared the twists and trials of her remarkable life. Her honesty, spirit, and ample supply of tough love have enabled many of us, even in the darkest hours, to somehow put one foot in front of the other—and be brave enough. This book gathers, each on a single page, more than 100 of Strayed's indelible quotes and thoughts—"mini instruction manuals for the soul" that urge us toward the incredible capacity for love, compassion, forgiveness, and endurance that is within us all. Be brave enough to break your own heart. You can't ride to the fair unless you get on the pony. Keep walking. Acceptance is a small, quiet room. Romantic love is not a competitive sport. Forward is the direction of real life. Ask yourself: What is the best I can do? And then do that.

      • content: "Gorgeous, a little 135-page gem. The one book every woman must read this year. The stop-whatever-you're-doing-and-read-this-now book, in which every turn of phrase is tattoo-worthy, every tidbit of wisdom too good not to share with every single one of your girlfriends. It's the kind of book that makes your highlighters run out of ink, and your Post-Its run out of stick. In the 100-plus quotes, thoughts, words of wisdom, and tidbits of beauty that Strayed has compiled, you will recognize yourself over and over again, in the best and worst and most essential ways . . . It will encourage you, breath by breath, unpaid bill by unpaid bill, bucket list goal by bucket list goal, all the way to the you whom you want to be--however long it might take. . . . Strayed can take readers from the church to the saloon in literally three words or less. She invites you to quietly marvel at the universe with her, and then promptly demands that you go out and participate in it, followed by a swift...

        September 1, 2015
        A lightweight collection of self-help snippets from the bestselling author. What makes a quote a quote? Does it have to be quoted by someone other than the original author? Apparently not, if we take Strayed's collection of truisms as an example. The well-known memoirist (Wild), novelist (Torch), and radio-show host ("Dear Sugar") pulls lines from her previous pages and delivers them one at a time in this small, gift-sized book. No excerpt exceeds one page in length, and some are only one line long. Strayed doesn't reference the books she's drawing from, so the quotes stand without context and are strung together without apparent attention to structure or narrative flow. Thus, we move back and forth from first-person tales from the Pacific Crest Trail to conversational tidbits to meditations on grief. Some are astoundingly simple, such as Strayed's declaration that "Love is the feeling we have for those we care deeply about and hold in high regard." Others call on the author's unique observations-people who regret what they haven't done, she writes, end up "mingy, addled, shrink-wrapped versions" of themselves-and offer a reward for wading through obvious advice like "Trust your gut." Other quotes sound familiar-not necessarily because you've read Strayed's other work, but likely due to the influence of other authors on her writing. When she writes about blooming into your own authenticity, for instance, one is immediately reminded of Anais Nin: "And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." Strayed's true blossoming happens in her longer works; while this collection might brighten someone's day-and is sure to sell plenty of copies during the holidays-it's no substitute for the real thing. These platitudes need perspective; better to buy the books they came from.
