Book Review: Quit Like a Woman by Holly Whitaker
You don't know how much you need this book, or maybe you do. Either way, it will save your life." -Me. (The first blurb on the back cover of Quit Like a Woman, by Holly Whitaker.)
I take book blurbs SERIOUSLY. I turn most of them down. I have to personally know you, like you a lot, AND connect energetically with the content you're putting out into the world. So when Holly asked me to blurb her book, it was an immediate HELL YES, a week of speed-reading because it was even more remarkable than I imagined, and then a month of, "How can I possibly summarize this? How do I let people know how important it is? How can I possible get across the truth and grace and love in just one sentence?"
I went back and forth, writing draft after draft, but kept coming back to this simple phrase: This book will save your life. So that's what I submitted, with trepidation, because that's not a very typical flowery blurb. But it's what they printed, and seeing it made my heart swell. That's the kind of integrity Holly shows in all things. And that is exactly what you need from the woman showing you exactly how to build a life you don't want to escape from.
This book is extraordinary in its power. It should GLOW on the shelf. If you have ever wondered what your lift could be like if you just weren’t drinking right now, order Quit Like a Woman RIGHT NOW.
Holly, I am so proud of you and this work, and every damn word here comes straight from my soul. I love you.
