If you have experienced the loss of a partner through a breakup or divorce, you will appreciate reading The Swipe Right Effect by C.K. Collins. The Swipe Right Effect is a nonfiction book written to help people process and recover from losses in their lives. Each chapter in the book offers a story and a suggestion for achieving empowerment. At the end of the book, the author offers a reference section where links to all the resources (books, movies, apps) discussed in the book are provided.

Two things make this book powerful. The first powerful thing is a series of ten interviews the author has with her friends. Each conversation brings concepts like anger, courage, forgiveness, and perspective to life. After the conversations, the author writes about the books and empowerment techniques discussed during their conversation. This is the second powerful thing about this resource. By the end of the book, the reader has a thorough list of things to read, do, and consider while working towards self-recovery.

I enjoyed reading this book. Some interviews were funny. Other interviews were sad. All of them were fascinating to read and entirely relatable. In the book, the author highlights that everyone has a story. The human experience is messy and imperfect, and this book normalizes these truths. The author displays incredible vulnerability by sharing the painful details of her separation and divorce from her husband, and that provides the platform for a thoughtful book.

There wasn’t much I didn’t like about this book. If there is one thing about the book that could have been done better, it is the actual premise of the book! The Swipe Right Effect is positioned as a book for anyone struggling with loss. While I agree that anyone can benefit from reading the stories and utilizing the empowerment resources, I think this book is most suited for straight-identifying women who have experienced infidelity, divorce, or significant struggles in their marriages. For this group of women, the book provides a fantastic, realistic, step-by-step guide toward healing and getting back into the world of dating again.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. It felt professionally edited, which made it easy and enjoyable to read. The resources were well-cited, and I felt inspired to buy books recommended by the author. I also watched a documentary about one of her life experiences: walking the Camino de Santiago trail in Spain. I would recommend this book to women who have faced infidelity, estrangement, and/or divorce and who want to read the stories of ten women who have faced similar struggles. I would also recommend this book to people who have considered solo travel as a form of healing, especially those interested in the Camino de Santiago.
