Well I really enjoyed this book. But of course you can not take it seriously.
Steve's point of view is strictly that-his point of view. His thoughts on love, relationships, intimacy and commitment were humorous and made me laugh out loud.
I can't agree with his views on everything, but he did offer a few gems of wisdom.
My opinion of Barbara Walters is always changing. She obviously lives amongst the "upper crust" & there is no two ways about that. Although it is impossible for us mere mortals to understand living that sort of life, it does make for a fascinating read. Is she a "good guy or a bad guy" ? I think she has accomplished an overwhelming positive position for women. But I think her ideas of "giving" are very poor, unless she receives some benefits or accolades from it. I would not be surprised upon her death to see her money used for a Barbara Walters Library/Museum like our former presidents....or hopefully she will show yet another side.

I got to page 59 and just stopped reading.
I decided I love the TV show Medium but this
book isn't what I had hoped.
Many may find it spiritual and interesting,
I found I need the inter-action between the TV
characters to enjoy her gift.
I've become a big fan of Kent Haruf. I really enjoy his books with the McPheron brothers and the stories about the city Holt. They are such heart warming stories that I love to crawl into bed with on a rainy day or night. :)
