One thing it says is "Don't take it personally." In the media interviews I've done since the book was released, the most common question is: HOW DO YOU NOT TAKE REJECTION PERSONALLY????
Many of my clients get out of bad relationships, others get out of mediocre relationships, some get out of good but not good enough relationships. But I put so much of me in the beginning of the book, to let my readers know, I do and have done everything I ask of my readers.
Others thought things were good and the partner went poof. While some critics and reviewers have thought there was TOO MUCH of me in my book, others take comfort in the fact that I'm not just a talking head with a degree and a roster of clients... For the most part, in my books and on my blog, I speak only of things I have experienced and worked through first hand.

I guess I would have thought once you hit 50, committing a felony wouldn't be on anyone's bucket list, but I've met several women who have dated recently-convicted felons, and I have dated two, one of whom was wearing her court-ordered ankle bracelet on our date.) But back to the hurt feelings.
