    I’m a big fan of Cheryl Strayed. Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, of course, is great. But Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar was like a revelation to me. Oh my God, I loved that book.Brave Enough is basically a prettily-packaged collection of quotes taken from Strayed’s books, essays, and talks formatted in big text and centered on the page. (See attached picture.) There is no dust jacket, so the cover feels like canvas, but the vibrant green with gold letters is beautiful. There is also an orange ribbon bookmark.There isn’t a dud quote in here. I believe the book accomplishes what Strayed says she wanted it to accomplish in the introduction. She says, “I think of quotes as mini-instruction manuals for the soul. It’s my appreciation of their very usefulness that compelled me to put together this book. Not because I believe in my own sagacity, but because I believe in the power of words to help us reset our intentions, clarify our thought…

    First of all let me be clear that I am inspired by Cheryl Strayed and really liked Wild, Torch and especially Tiny Beautiful Things. I think I gave that book to a dozen people.But this book is seemingly just the Cliff notes of TBT; without the content and provocative stories attached to the “slogans.” I can’t figure out why this was published. It reminds me of those gift books near the cash register at the bookstore–meant as a token gift for a birthday.I’m disappointed!!…

    I wanted more. Some powerful quotes, quick read, missing the grit and beautiful soul punching passion of Tiny Beautiful Things and Wild….

  4. Quillin

    What can I say…having a collection of Cheryl Strayed’s nuggets at my fingertips is delicious. I can turn to any page and get a solid bit of something I need to hear – regardless topic or time of day. They all seem to work for me and I bet the same would be said by most readers….

  5. Thumper55

    The quotes were inspiring and thoughtful, but the book was slim on substance. Overall, I enjoyed it and highlighted many pithy statements for future reference. I’ll read her other books, based on this introduction….

  6. Customer

    I love this book. It’s just a collection of quotes, pieces of advice, nuggets of spiritual gold that have truly helped me in dealing with my daughter’s cancer. It’s light to laugh at, but thoughtful and deep enough to really take to heart. Buy it. Perfect for waiting room too….

  7. Annabelle

    Yes it was gutsy Cheryl Strayed, but it was largely pulled from Wild and other sources, with one quote per page. Can’t believe it cost what it did. Had as much meat as a chicken wing….

  8. JHP

    Very disappointing. I had hopes that this book would be filled with sayings that would inspire and/or make me feel good. It did nothing of the sort. I also got tired of her is using the “F” bomb, which was completely unnecessary….
