Whether you are jealous--or vehemently deny ever feeling jealousy--this book is about your life. The author examines a deeply rooted, often buried emotion that distorts our most intimate relationships. Her ruthless honesty leads her and her readers to ask questions of their own lives and of those close to them. Why are some people more jealous than others? The goal, Friday says is not to try to eliminate jealousy but to understand it. Only when we come to terms with our destructiveness can we open ourselves to gratitude and love.
