The Art Of Letting Go helps you understand why, how and when you should let someone go so you can move on and never look back.

- Great book !!5 star

If you need something to reaffirm you about situations this is the book definitely help me !!

- Strengthening4 star

Ostensibly for women in their 20s and 30s, I found a ton of wisdom here as a 51-year-old non-female. Some big take-aways: do lots on your own. Make your own decisions and live with the consequences. Make a ton of mistakes and create a lot of magic moments. The self-discovery you achieve will make you have more success romantic relationships if thatโ€™s what you want. Also, there are a lot of other types of love that can cheer you up, not just romantic. Expand and lean on your network. Finally, letting go takes strength and leaves more behind - so more is ahead of you. Stay the course and do whatโ€™s best for you. Itโ€™ll all work out. While the book got slightly repetitive, and there was too much focus on whatโ€™s done TO you in relationships, I still flew through the pages and appreciated the conversational style. I ended up feeling a lot better.

I finished this book in two days! I am 25 and just went through my first break up. I am trying to navigate how to move forward from my first love, or what I thought was my first love.

LICK LIZARD - The Art of Letting Go4 star

A very though invoking and well written book. I only would have preferred it if the author being a woman; would have made the book a non-sexist perspective. By that I mean, using only gender neutral terminology rather than from a womanโ€™s perspective. Very good book.

Great book I really loved it And those quotes where touching

A Human Being ;) - It had a great start but it kinda went down hill for me4 star

Not to down play this book itโ€™s really good but the whole relationship thing got repetitive. The book stuck on that one topic. It would have been nice if it did other types of letting goโ€™s too! Relationships arenโ€™t the only thing people need to learn how to let go of.

Dallis Adams - Interesting4 star

If youโ€™ve gone through a terrible break up, and want to get over them, this is a good book to sit down and read! I didnโ€™t read it in one sitting. I read this is multiple sittings. Read this whenever you feel sad. Enjoy!!โค๏ธ

del traci - Phase 13 star

This book is made for lost lovers, not really for just letting go and being one in general. Also this is definitely for someone whoโ€™s just recently starting their journey to healing and not a vet in the game. Good quotes though.

This book found me at the right time in my life, such a great read!

Boricua.queen27 - Forgive Yourself5 star

This book has been read in increments throughout the past year and a half. The greatest lesson that you learn from this book is to not put the blame on yourself for the pain you have endured in life, but instead forgive yourself to move forward. Itโ€™s all a process to heal.

Ahmad4295 - Just okay ...2 star

Book could have been more interesting if it had adopted the more headings, instead taking about relationships and how to get over the breakups.

This book has taught me a lot, I lost my significant other 5 months ago and itโ€™s not only taught me to let go, but how to let go of what I cannot control, and who I cannot control.

Cc2000004455 - Rate & Review4 star

This book was amazing, it has some good incite & thereโ€™s chapters that are relatable. There are a couple of punctuation errors or flipped words, but itโ€™s nothing that actually takes away from the point of the book. The art of letting go, is a book Iโ€™d suggest to anyone having a hard time letting go, or processing some difficult feelings. It doesnโ€™t replace the help of a health professional (therapist, counselor, etc) but it does help you find new ways to apply helpful inner work & better coping habits. Itโ€™s basically a how to book, with some good advice, poems & quotes as well. Well worth the read, Iโ€™m glad it was free.
