I borrowed this book from the library since I didn't win a copy at Myleik Teele's Live Podcast event back in August. I've also read Cheryl Strayed's Wild, so I'm familiar with her work. I appreciated this little book of quotes. It had a few gems and that's good enough for at least 3 stars from me.

Collected words of wisdom from Cheryl Strayed. If you haven't read "Wild", you must.

I love Cheryl Strayed's tough compassion, her message of forgiveness and the encouragement she gives people.

Not a book -- dang it --- but a collection of quotes.
Everything from scribbles in your junior-high notebook, the cursing in your college journal, the Oprah-Ah Ha moment you captured in your 40s, to the things you love most about Cheryl Strayed and her "Wild" voice -- it's all here. In one-page snippets.
I gave it 5 stars because of the shared consciousness the collection represents through these phases. I recognized shared themes in nearly all. But I most admire her way of cutting to the bone: "Every last one of us can do better than give up." And do it like a mother bleeper apparently. Keep Calm & Hike On

I really enjoyed this book and plan to own it. It is a brilliant compilation of quotes the author has collected and some of them hit very close to home. I did not give it 5 stars due to the fact that there are some serious "cuss words' in it. I sound like an old Fuddy Duddy - but I get no pleasure from reading words that I find offensive.

You don't have a right to the cards you believe you should have been dealt. You have an obligation to play the hell out of the ones you are holding.
