BOOK REVIEWS

 I love this book! I knew I would the second I heard the title. It did not disappoint.
It's rare to find a book nowadays that is so beyond honest and still able to make you chuckle.
I found this book very insightful. I struggle with depression as well and was hitting rock bottom when this book was given to me. It was just what I needed. I'm team "middle finger happiness" all the way.

Great book for entrepreneurs or anyone who wants to make their ideas happen. 3 pages puts you in monster mode and you just want to get to work, stop caring what society thinks and make your crazy ideas reality. This book definitely competes with best sellers I’ve seen on the topic. The candid authenticity of the author is gold.

POWERFUL & INSIGHTFUL

Middle Finger Happiness is definitely a book worth buying and reading! I could not put this book down once I started reading. The chapters are short and to the point. Sharon Lee Zapata is an excellent writer and shares her hardships and struggles which in turn has motivated me to find my own badassery!!

It's one of those books you pick up and don't want to put down. Author doesn't hold back, in her unique way Sharon shares personal struggles, success and useful information to motivate readers to be the best bad ass version of themselves. I laughed and nodded my head in agreement on many pages! Middle Finger Happiness is the ideal book for anyone at any point in their life. Highly recommend it.

FINALLY, A BOOK THAT IS UNAPOLOGETICALLY BLUNT

Awesome and easy read of a book... Sharon is blunt and unapologetically honest and gives great insight on getting off your butt and following your dreams.. 

PHIL D.
AMAZON CUSTOMER 

The book shares many instances where the writer had to make serious decisions to be strong. The book is comical, but very moving to someone that has fought similar battles. Make no mistake: if you have underwent any sort of trauma, abuse or neglect, this book has the recipe to overcome and, as the author states #getshitdone. It is a very bold, to the point book of life hacks and reminders that all your battles are there, not to define you, but to prepare you for the person you want to be. Warning: The book may end up making you believe in your own badassery, and may potentially ignite and inspire you to get up and tell anyone that is not there to contribute to your journey to eff off!!
