Book Review — Clarity & Connection by Yung Pueblo

Rating: 2/5

Genre: Poetry

I have been a fan of Diego Perez aka Yung Pueblo’s on Instagram for a couple of years now and was very excited to read this. Unfortunately, my expectations were not met. Although there are many great lessons in these pages on relationships and on one’s self, the poems are redundant and come across a little too much like a “self-help-guide” for my liking and definitely not what I want in a book of poetry. This book may be ideal for anyone who may be struggling with trust issues or security in their relationship as it may give you a lot to think about. For me, these poems came across like mini mantras or snippets of advice that ask you to concentrate on the “why” behind the way you act and react (it’s kind of like a minor form of cognitive behavior therapy minus the licensed professional and in book form?) If you want a taste of what is in this book you only have to read Yung Pueblo’s tweets.
