Meshel Laurie is one of those polarising people.
I adore her, so perhaps take this review with a grain of salt. However, I think the fact I really, genuinely, thoroughly enjoyed Buddhism for Break-ups has got to speak for something, given I am not going (nor have I ever gone) through a serious breakup.
Perhaps it means I have no idea what I’m talking about. Or perhaps it means the principles of Buddhism discussed are universally relevant and that Meshel’s words are honest, comforting, hilarious and encouraging. (It might also mean both. They’re not mutually exclusive).
Regardless, for anyone going through a break-up right now, why not try it? You’ve got nothing to lose except $29.99.
