How to Hold a Grudge: From Resentment to Contentment-The Power of Grudges to Transform Your Life
In 2014, the writer Anne Lamott, in an essay in her book Small Victories, wrote about holding onto grudges and the power of forgiveness. I don’t know if the author was inspired by this essay, but it rings very familiar. Spoiler alert: of course, the author really can’t hold a grudge and struggles to find forgiveness. So, in that sense, this book reads like so many others. Chapter four is devoted to rating grudges as to their power. Similarly, there is a quiz at the end of the book for deciding if grudges are forgivable or not. Again, this reader could not relate to the questions. The scenarios seem very specific to the author and may not hold much relevance for the reader. In all, the book feels very personal to the author. This book has a very amusing premise, and this reader had hoped that the book itself would have been more humorous and relatable.
