It sounds (from your review, which does not incline me to read the book) as though she has missed the difference between "your religious practice has to be [at least partly] about you and your needs" and "everyone's religious practice is about you and your needs."

She seems to have managed an odd doubling, of believing both "I am an outsider, different from most of the people around me" and "everyone is basically like me, and will react to things in the same ways I do," and written a book that leans on both those as axioms. Yes, most people believe at least some of the latter, and a lot of people believe at least some of the former, but how common is it to foreground both those ideas at the same time?
