This is the one and only book I would recommend to anyone going through a bad time. I read it back when I'd made a huge mistake and a bunch of people were mad at me (and rightfully so). Broken Open by Elizabeth Lesser helped me to use the experience to help me grow as a person and become more compassionate towards others. It's truly genius. — Jessica [Amazon, $10.88]
