Praise for How to Be Your Own Best Friend
“I want to tell you that it’s magic, but the whole point of the book is that there is no magic. So instead let me simply say that I can’t live without it.”—Nora Ephron
“A wonderful prescription for the blahs . . . an antidote to weariness, discouragement or loneliness.”—Los Angeles Times
“What the Berkowitzes unearthed . . . is a too-often-forgotten form of human intercourse called getting to know me.”—Chicago Tribune
“A kind of psychiatric pep talk . . . directed at people who [are] learning how to operate themselves.”—The New York Times
“Seductively jargon-free, presented in neat question-and-answer format.”—Houston Chronicle
