Shira Taylor Gura has a bare, honest style of writing that not only draws readers in, but allows them to relate in some way to each of her stories. Despite being a self-help book, it does not always read like one; rather, it is more like a friend giving advice than a self-titled expert lecturing the reader into submission. This friendly tone makes Getting unStuck so much more effective. In her author’s bio, Gura attributes her inspiration for the S.T.U.C.K. Method to her experiences as an occupational therapist and yoga instructor; it is this calm wisdom that is evident on every page of her book.
The S.T.U.C.K. Method is simple and straightforward, but has a lot of promise. It demands honesty with oneself, which may be difficult for some, but would surely be worthwhile in the long run. As far as self-help books go, it’s definitely a great one. There are no false promises or tedious tasks, only honesty and reflection. This alone makes Getting unStuck a truly introspective, inspirational piece of literature.”
