Suitable for some but I felt hopeless reading it.

Pros- gives some good examples of how to deal with difficult circumstances, e.g. A friend's announcement. Spells out loud and clearly what you're going through and stresses all these horrible feelings are normal. Interesting case studies.
Cons- I didn't like this book. I gave it 3 stars and no less as some people, looking at the reviews, will definitely benefit from the information and 'coping tools'. Most of the chapters I enjoyed, however, I didn't feel confident after reading it. I also was no where near ready to read the adoption chapter. Each time I read this book I ended up in tears and my confidence and mood levels were reduced dramatically. I bought the relaxation cd from the Domar website. I didn't find that particularly good either.
All the reviews seem very genuine and each person is on a different journey, with their own ups and downs. I am just starting ivf and after reading this book I feel it's quite pointless. I would recommend the books by Julia Indichova in its place, they can be a bit airy fairy, but, really give hope.
