Publisher Description

This bestselling book from the author of Wild collects the best of The Rumpus's Dear Sugar advice columns plus never-before-published pieces. Rich with humor, insight, compassion—and absolute honesty—this book is a balm for everything life throws our way. Life can be hard: your lover cheats on you; you lose a family member; you can’t pay the bills—and it can be great: you’ve had the hottest sex of your life; you get that plum job; you muster the courage to write your novel. Sugar—the once-anonymous online columnist at The Rumpus, now revealed as Cheryl Strayed, author of the bestselling memoir Wild—is the person thousands turn to for advice.

    " Loved it from start to finish. Great combination of common sense advice and compassion. "

    " This is an upscale Dear Abby. I didn't agree with all of her advice, especially on education, but most of it is basic common sense. "

    " I feel like I've come to the party quite late with Cheryl Strayed. Since 2010, Strayed has been writing a hard hitting advice column that is at the same time confronting, lyrical and poignant. Her writing is incredibly personal, weaving together anecdotes from her own life with advice that you will take to heart. She speaks to everything from 'should I leave my husband/job/life?' to 'is there a God?' in a way that will encourage you to reflect on your own views on the subject. This book is an extremely well collated collection of her writing. While it could have been very disjointed or become repetitious, it holds together well - reading more as a series of essays than calls for help from those who have lost their way in the world. A surprisingly inspiring and uplifting book. "

    " This book drove me crazy for a little while. I'd read a few letters and answers, and thought it seemed overblown. And then it just clicked for me. Cheryl Strayed's writing has a certain intensity to it. She also has a wisdom that is tied to both an understanding about the imperfections of being human, and the importance of pushing our own limits and listening to our instincts. Her writing is very unique, as is her take on life. "

    " Loved this book. Good, down to earth advice when dealing with everyday problems and concerns. Had read Wild previously, which I also enjoyed immensely. "

  • Overall Performance: 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

    " Not my normal genre, but I really liked her book "Wild." I enjoyed this in that 1) it was self-affirming (sometimes the hard/unpopular thing is the right thing) and 2) she speaks in a tough yet wise and compassionate voice that I aspire to use with my own kids. "

    " Three and a half stars? Four and one tenth? I don't know but don't read my review, because I'm not even going to bother writing one; instead just read Moira's, because she freaking NAILED it. "

    " I want everyone I know who has gone through a hard time or is going through a hard time or may go through a hard time in the future to read this book. I had never read Rumpus, or Cheryl Strayed, or Dear Sugar, but the book is just gut wrenching. In a good way. And full of love. "
