To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I saw this at the public library and then bought it - the structure of 12 weeks of themed exercises is a manageable commitment and provides insights that you may have been avoiding (for instance the chapter on "giving up on received ideas" - who hasn't internalized years of expectations from others as the "right" way to live? She also provides a reading list for each chapter if you want to dig deeper into the themes. Overall, whether a "self-help" book is helpful depends on how I click with the voice of the author as well as their ideas. Here there's a humility to the guidance and ideas presented - the author isn't claiming to have all the answers but will help you find your own unique path forward.
