Book Review – The Silver Linings Playbook

The Silver Linings PlaybookI just finished listening to the audiobook version of The Silver Linings Playbook, and it was excellent. As always, I wanted to read the novel before seeing the movie, and I’m glad I did. From what I’ve heard, the movie changed several key elements of the book.
