This book is very revealing revealing the author's life, thoughts and feelings. By opening up her heart, it enables readers' hearts to open. It was very easy to read and understand, even for those whose first language is not English. The book is funny sometimes and light instead of delving deep into depressing matter. It is helpful at at the same time entertaining.

Kathleen Miller's candid memoir is highly inspiring. I recommend it, especially for adult children of alcoholics and women who have been abused. The author's great sense of humor shines through. She tells life stories- happy and sad- and insights she learned.

I found the book to be both insightful and interesting. I did not grow up in an alcoholic family, however my father was a workaholic as am I, and I found many similariities. Denial is required for this type of dysfunctional family upbringing, and I found that I was able to relate on many different levels to what Kathleen was sharing about her family unit. Kathleen's life experience is shared with a bright and positive outlook, and with a keen dry humor. I found many, many passages that touched me deeply, made me cry and made me laugh out loud as well. I found the book to be a delight. A very worthy first effort for this author. I look forward to more great reads from her in the near future.

In this intimate, moving, and powerful account of an often painful life, the author demonstrates the strength of character, personal courage, and rock-solid integrity that have allowed her to overcome the most traumatic experiences and emerge a stronger, more dedicated, and most enthusiastic individual. She is not afraid to lay bare the loneliness and isolation she felt as the child of a sometimes cruel and hypercritical alcoholic father. Despite two difficult marriages and several other abusive relationships, she has refused to give in to despair and has achieved a close and heart-warming affinity with her daughter and a good working relationship with her ex-husband. Ms. Miller's often harrowing, but at times hilarious, chronicle of her life experience grips the reader's attention and gives credence to the hard-won philosophy that has sustained her journey to her personal triumph.

I found this book to be self serving and arrogant. I wish we were all so perfect in this terrible world.Sheesh.
