This book is introspective and honesty is essential for diagnosing maladies and then exchanging one's current value system for a more efficient set of standards.
Blue stresses the necessity of ridding oneself of toxic relationships. He believes once values are adjusted that real friends will remain that have the same value set. To help the reader there will be a section entitled pitfalls in one's values worth considering. The importance of being authentic when relating to others is heavily stressed.
