Teal Swan tells a very interesting life story, lots of exercises in the back.
As a fan of Teal Swan I enjoyed reading about her life & felt inspired by her story. As she has gone through so much and still managed to heal and lead a successful life it does feel reassuring to read these kinds of tales that remind us of hope. I found her story disturbing, but as she is a considerate person she only talks about the worst parts for a couple of pages, and it isn't a book of horrors like "A child called It" by David Peltzer. (although those two pages of the really bad stuff was intense and very unpleasant) She gives you enough details for you to respect her journey without overwhelming you too much. You read enough to know she is a very strong lady worth listening to. The bulk of the book is actually a multitude of self-healing exercises. I didn't like that very much because it made me stop reading her compelling story and have to actually work on myself. :P The font is big & clear for people like me with bad eyes, so I also appreciated that aspect. I think I might have to come back to the actual exercises as I was expecting more of a story than a whole section dealing with...me. If you like escaping into other peoples' terrible life tales to avoid dealing with your own, you may be disappointed as her story is short, and half the book is the exercises mentioned. Overall it is still a decent book, and I'd recommend it to anyone on a healing journey. :)Read full review
