Eat Pray Love Made Me Do It
Before Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat Pray Love
came along ten years ago, depression and divorce might have prompted visits to a therapist, not necessarily a trip around the world. How inspirational to its millions of readers was Gilbert's saga of travel and transcendence? So inspirational that nearly 2,000 people wrote personal essays about how it galvanized them to make shifts of their own. More than 40 of those pieces are collected in Eat Pray Love Made Me Do It
, a love letter to Gilbert and to the power of change.
