Reviews

I found The Story of You to be a richly idea-generating book for the reader. The writing flows well and establishes a sense of comfortable conversation with the reader - while also offering very useful guidelines for the creative process of writing about one's personal life. -- Betty R. Hasselkus, PhD, FAOTA, OTR, author of The Meaning of Everyday Occupation
