This bestselling book from the author of Wild collects the best of The Rumpus's Dear Sugar advice columns plus never-before-published pieces. Rich with humor, insight, compassion—and absolute honesty—this book is a balm for everything life throws our way.

Life can be hard: your lover cheats on you; you lose a family member; you can’t pay the bills—and it can be great: you’ve had the hottest sex of your life; you get that plum job; you muster the courage to write your novel. Sugar—the once-anonymous online columnist at The Rumpus, now revealed as Cheryl Strayed, author of the bestselling memoir Wild—is the person thousands turn to for advice.

    My sister recommended this book to me after it was recommended to her by a mutual friend. I had never heard of or read anything about Cheryl Strayed/Dear Sugar, which ended up being a wonderful thing. This book blew me away. Yes, there were uncomfortable parts, and depressing parts, and downright terrible parts, but there were also hopeful and courageous parts, and parts that made my heart a little lighter. Sometimes I got teary eyed and other times I downright ugly cried. This book really had it all and was one of my best reads this year. I loved how the book was broken down into sections and I enjoyed pacing myself through the different "stories". I can definitely see the draw of Strayed's writing style. She is no nonsense and in your face. She is the friend we all need who will give it to you straight and either hold you as you cry or push you to be the person you know you can be. No, I would not follow her advice in every situation, but I liked that I was given the other side of the coin. A viewpoint that I may not have considered in those situations. I have never highlighted a book as many times as I did this one. Every piece had a gem to uncover and I found Strayed's frank honesty refreshing. I will say, that the book may not be for everyone considering the subject matter discussed in some of the pieces and the language used.

    This book is amazing and everyone should own a copy. I'm going to be giving it as gifts for years to come. Cheryl Strayed is such an insightful, caring writer. That said, I didn't want to take a star away, but this version has many pages duplicated in a row, and then subsequent pages missing. I recommend buying the print version. Disappointing for Random House. I really wish I hadn't bought the ebook version from iTunes.
  • Loved it!
