My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This self-help is something really and truly insightful. It can really get down to what really counts and how to go about it. The beginning had a bunch of personal growth that can make almost any type of female reader want to keep reading, want to know the next best thing to having a fulfilling. It lures you in, like an ice cream truck driving by your house. There are a variety of flavors to choose from, a choice made my none other than you. Then getting closer to the end, I started to question what it was basically telling me to do. How to react, how to have a perspective. I believe the writer was on a role with the self-help instructions and suggestions in the beginning, but there is a contradiction later on that made me as a reader do a complete 180. I felt like I was in a trance and suddenly woke from it. This author definitely has a way with words, but I do recommend some more development on writing skills. But then again, what do I know. Check it out for yourself.

Overall, I did enjoy this short read and would recommend something like this to my grandmother or sister.
