15 Books to Help Solve 15 Life Problems
After a scorching divorce, Elizabeth Gilbert set out on a yearlong trip through Italy, India and Indonesia. Culinary delights, rigorous spiritual searching and exhilarating romance were all in store. The details were delicious, but it's the insights in Gilbert's 2006 book that have held on for more than a decade.

"But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that's holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention."
