I love this book, it has great exercises that are simple but remind you on a daily basis of how as women we sabotage ourselves and are our own worst critics. There are daily affirmations to help us be better to ourselves and other women and less critical of our outer selves and concentrate on what our inner selves look like. It is like having a real, meaningful and authentic conversation with a good friend who is trying to show us the error of our ways. Awesome book for both adult women and certainly something I would get for my teenage daughters (if i had any)to help them combat the images they get in our sexualized, media driven society.

I loved it from the start. Reading the book reminded me of that one friend you have that always makes you feel better about who you are, what you are doing and the life you are leading. The friend encourages you, pats you on the back, extols grace and exudes positivity. This is a great book to read daily not only to accept yourself but to smile, laugh and remember that life shouldn't be so crazy. I love the daily readings and the activities that go along with them. Each action item is simplistic in nature but yet so deep in meaning. The gentle journey of "Beautiful You" isn't a loud wake-up call to accepting yourself, no that's not the radical part, it's a gentle radical shift in perspective that you gain by reading the book that allows you to fully embrace yourself.

Generally I have a problem with the daily meditation/exercise type books though I want to like them.

Often they end of feeling a bit lame and clichéd. Not beautiful you. The exercises are interesting, doable, and not too hallmark moment.

I highly recommend it.

Beautiful You is filled with activities and affirmations to help readers live their best lives. It's like having a best friend on the nightstand, reminding you that your beauty is about so much more than the size of your thighs or the color of your hair. Molinary uses examples from her own life to illustrate the importance of self-acceptance. It's her candor that brings the book to life. The activities offer great food-for-thought and gently push you to rethink your own inner dialogue about beauty. A great book!

I am a college student at UNCC and had Rosie as a professor (my favorite thus far) and was extremely excited when I heard this book was coming out. I am not at all a reader, but know and love Rosie enough to know I would enjoy her writing as well. This book has been life changing in making me realize that I am beautiful and that I should not let anyone or anything convince me otherwise. This is a FANTASTIC book for just about anyone (especially women) who do not appreciate themselves as they should. It is a VERY easy read as it is only a page or two each day and takes only 15-20 minutes to read and journal. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an inspirational, short daily read to better love, know, and accept yourself!!

I absolutely treasure this book. As an after-school site coordinator, I cannot imagine any other book aiding me better than Beautiful You. Rosie Molinary provides amazing activities that not only help in the self-awareness of young teenage girls, but woman of any age, class, and race. Beautiful You is positively radical in every sense; Rosie Molinary guides women and young teenage girls in how to accept themselves and creates a community amongst all women. This book is inspirational; the journey Rosie Molinary takes us through is revolutionary by day 365 you not only feel empowered, but 100% motivated to make a difference. I definitely recommend this book in an academic or personal setting.

As the mother to a daughter and a professor to many young women, this book is a wonderful gift to share. I gave the book to the 20 young college women I mentor. They loved it! One said, "It's amazing that there is a step-by-step book to boost your self confidence! Very helpful!" Another said, "I look at it daily and it lifts my spirits." My daughter was drawn to the cover and she thumbs through it every day. We have already had some great discussions inspired by the book! Though she is too young now, I plan on creating "Beautiful You" journals as a mother-daughter project during her 11th year. In the meanwhile, I found the daily practices/exercises/writings to be valuable for any mother, teacher or woman to consider. I will be using some of the book's exercises in my "Body Image" course. Molinary's book will work better than others I have seen in the same genre. It takes the reader on a journey, knowing that self-acceptance is a process. Often, the young women I work with are overwhelmed by the "have high self-esteem" mantra. They know that they SHOULD love themselves, they just do not know how...and where to begin. "Beautiful You" offers hope, inspiring the reader to adopt a practical pace of self-reflection. The book engages the reader on many levels: inspiring anecdotes, academic research, interviews with experts, media examples, and on. All are written in a voice that inspires and resonates. As a mother and a teacher, I am grateful to finally have this treasured book to share.

Beautiful You is a treasure of a book, comprised of 365 tips or suggestions on how to celebrate the beauty inside each and every one of us. Molinary suggests we go day by day and use a journal to reflect on each practice, which is a wonderful idea. The less disciplined of us can do what I do: go Beautiful You "dipping." I keep it on my coffee table where it reminds me daily to take a few minutes, flip through, pick any page at random, and absorb it. The book will immediately calm you, help to bring you to your center, and remind you of what is really important. It makes a beautiful little gift for any girl in your life, and I've purchased it for my grandmother, my mom, and several friends. There is definitely something in it for everyone.
