On Being Human is beautiful and tender, profound and absorbing. I never wanted to put it down. In writing with such clarity and honesty about her jagged path to becoming, Jennifer Pastiloff has told the story of not only herself, but so many of us. I was consoled by this book and also inspired. On every page I felt the presence and the power of Pastiloff's brave and gigantic heart. This is a book friends will tell friends they have to read for years to come. It's an important, enthralling debut.
Jen Pastiloff is the only human ray of sunshine who could ever make me earnestly consider incorporating unpalatable things like 'manifesting joy' and 'listening' (UGH) into my life. This book is a treasure.
Read this f*cking book. Jen is very much part of the light and the balance that is needed in this world right now. I don't even know her but I love her. Read this book
With harrowing vulnerability and badass candor, Jen Pastiloff has written a gritty and passionate memoir
