Searing and superbly written, She Matters illuminates the friendships that have influenced, nourished, inspired, and haunted Susanna Sonnenberg - and sometimes torn her apart. Each has its own lessons that Sonnenberg seeks to understand. Her method is investigative and ruminative; her result, fearlessly observed portraits of friendships that will inspire all readers to consider the complexities of their own relationships.

I rated this high for the writing. She has a great way with description, with combining word pictures that make the idea she is trying to convey come alive. The topic, friendships, is explored from an almost totally egocentric perspective. Sonnenberg is forever trying to figure out why her friends don't seem to get her, why they don't fulfil all her needs. This book does show she is trying to understand and to change but for me it was quite clear she was looking for a mother. Read this in stages so you don't get bogged down in her angst and her over-the-top rhapsodising.

All i could feel was sad for this woman who seemed to make friends but ended up losing them. You never know why really so many reasons for her failed frienships. Found her tiring and i think i have to end my frienship with her too.
