    1. This book could be a high school AP English student final project. That's about the level of writing skill, organization of content, and presentation you should expect. Please don't waste your time trying to soldier through this book when a few directed searches on google will be far more rewarding.Ridiculous.

    2. When I read a book, I often think about the review I will write on it. What are the things that stand out to me? What makes this a good or bad read?

    5. I found through reading this book a second time much later in life that it was much more helpful the first time I read it when I was in my late twenties. As a women in my early fifties now not so much.

    6. I wanted to love this book, and maybe I would have if I had read it as a teen instead of as an adult. She (the author)had some interesting stories, but she was overly preachy.

    7. I was really excited for this book but I was very disappointed, its mostly interviews and basic info
