Title: F*cked at 40
Author: Tova Leigh
This review might come off more personal thoughts than a review.
I will state that I do not agree with everything Tova Leigh wrong in the book but there are times I found myself agreeing with her personal thoughts.
At times I found myself thinking I could write a book about mid life crisis that would be equal or better to what Tova Leigh wrote.
As a mother and woman who turned 41 this year I find some of what her wrote to be honest heart felt and true. Other times I found her to be vulgar, selfish and lack of boundaries. The author paints a picture of life that isn't true to everyone. She will make readers laugh, angry and feel all the emotion in between.
