“I want to tell you that it’s magic, but the whole point of the book is that there is no magic. So instead let me simply say that I can’t live without it.”—Nora Ephron
“A wonderful prescription for the blahs . . . an antidote to weariness, discouragement or loneliness.”Los Angeles Times
“What the Berkowitzes unearthed . . . is a too-often-forgotten form of human intercourse called getting to know me.”Chicago Tribune
“A kind of psychiatric pep talk . . . directed at people who [are] learning how to operate themselves.”The New York Times
