      On almost a whim Sophie Hannah decides to write a book on grudges, a topic she discovers no one else has ever written about Holding grudges is a universal psychological phenomena and although Hannah has no mental health background or experience, she feels comfortable tackling the topic, with the help of two mental health practitioners looking over her work She takes issue with the definition of a grudge, identifies different types and themes of grudges, and when to let go of a grudge She make On [...]

      Holding grudges doesn t have to fill us with hate or make us bitter and miserable If you approach the practice of grudge holding in an enlightened way, you ll find it does the opposite it makes you forgiving Your grudges can help you honor your personal emotional landmarks, and you can distill vital life lessons from them about your value system, hopes, needs and priorities that will act as a series of stepping stones pointing you in the right direction for the best possible futur H [...]

      I am a great fan of Sophie Hannah s psychological thrillers, so this departure from her normal fictional output is quite a surprise and something of an eye opener, too.I suppose we would all like to believe we are too magnanimous to hold a grudge for long forgive and forget is the noble attitude to take but only saints are truly capable of this, so where does that leave the rest of us lesser mortals Sophie s lighthearted treatise does not advocate seeking vengeance, but explains why ther I am a [...]

      I truly wonder why Sophie Hannah wrote this book Successful in her other offerings, she does not have the qualifications, credentials or training to write a book based on psychology and it cannot be touted as a self help book when her aim seems to be talking about herself There may not be any current books about grudges, but is there really a need for one Does the world need people holding tight to every real or imagined slight That is what this book recommends Don t only hold on to yo I truly w [...]

      I won this as a giveaway It s a fun lighthearted book with a good message Grudges can be good, positive impacts in our lives if we can treat them that way The two issues I had with this book was 1 it wasn t academic or scientific Which is fine for this type of book The second was the types of grudges she gave examples of They really weren t big, huge, nasty grudges Some weren t really grudges Some were I was mildly unconvinced I think right of the bat she should have a big grudge I won this as a [...]

      I picked this up on a whim because the title was so very intriguing It sounded like the antithesis of most of the self help books that are out there Why would anyone want to hold a grudge Nasty, small minded, grubby things I finished it thinking I neede to buy a copy for just about every teenage girl I know This is not a book about holding onto pain or anger or ugliness It s a book about using those things to grow as an individual, and to learn how to protect yourself from painful exper I picked [...]

      It seems to me that, maybe during a period of writer s block, the author sat doodling for a while and came up with this I think it must be aimed at the Young Adult market, because as am Adult Adult I find the tone immature, silly and patronising.She makes the argument that grudges can actually be positive experiences, identifying different types of grudges, when indeed, if to let go of a grudge In fact she takes issue with the very definition of a grudge Apparently a couple of professiona It see [...]
