I’d put this book in the same category as Eat, Love, Pray.
Mostly seems to be geared toward upper-middle class women who wake up somewhere in their 40’s and feel their lives are shallow and unfulfilled. So, they leave home with a wad of cash and an “invisible backpack” (see http://www.uakron.edu/centers/conflict/docs/whitepriv.pdf if you aren’t familiar with the term) to find themselves.
While I agree with the author’s premise that it’s very helpful for women to retreat from the world for a couple of days, the spoiled, almost sorority-girl “it’s all about me” tone of the book was tiresome and grating.
