Warning: well written, provocative but searingly honest,

This review is from: Why Do I Love These People?: The Families We Come from and the Families We Form (Paperback)
Po Bronson's rather different approach to be self-help - that is, ask other people how they found there way was well received in his "What shall I do with my life?"
I saw this book and was initially disappointed when I saw that he was taking the same approach to families. However, his point seems to be that reflection on other people's honest accounts of their own experience helps us to understand ourselves. And it does.
However, if you are trying to find your answer in a 'self-help book' this may be too powerful for you. Some of the experiences described with admirable honesty are not pleasant and it can be quite harrowing to feel you have a handle on someone just for them to surprise you in this way.
