First off, this is NOT a diet or exercise book. Yes, there are diet and exercise suggestions through out the book, but they are helpful hints and some lifestyle changes that can help towards that first step of taking action. Get Energy is all about figuring out what is blocking you from taking action and overcoming the hardest thing: taking that first step. I love that this makes it easy to do one little thing at a time that can make a difference in your daily life. Austin doesn't make you feel bad that you have bad habits, she tries to make you understand how each little thing can help you change for the better.

The book is broken down into bite size bits that are easy to digest and actually accomplish. Although I doubt I will ever look anything like Denise Austin, it is comforting to know that she has the same issues and problems that most women around 50 have and that at this time in our lives, our bodies are changing. I have tried several of the suggestions in this book when I am feeling out of sorts and they really do help. Even getting up and walking around the block can help change your outlook on life. Everyone needs this book and it will help your New Year's resolutions so much easier!

The first thing I learned from Get Energy!: Empower Your Body, Love Your Life is that Denise Austin is 50 years "young." Wow! She has been around awhile, so my expectations weren't very high for this book. I was pleasantly surprised.

I've read my share of diet books, so I was glad to see that this isn't a diet book, but focuses on how to get more energy (which, couldn't we all use?)

The book is divided into three parts. In the first part you take a quiz to find out what's zapping your energy (for me, it was that I wasn't exercising and have a demanding job). Part two includes tips for addressing the energy suckers addressed in part one. And part three includes a 14-day PEP plan, which I have bookmarked for later simply because I have way too much else on my plate right now.

Overall, I really liked it.

Get Energy by Denise Austin is a book aimed at giving you extra energy in your life by empowering your body, and loving your life. Denise Austin is a serious source for motivation and really knows how to stay fit, healthy, and full of energy. The best part of this is that she actually does care about helping all of us with this too.

Get Energy is Denise Austin's newest book about having more energy. I don't know many people that aren't stressed or tired in some form, so this is a very timely book for our overly-caffeinated country.

Denise Austin gives very good advice on the types of energy, and how to have more of it. As she explains, this isn't a diet book or a workout book. It is instead just a guide to help you achieve a healthier life and have more energy doing so by making time for YOU.

I really enjoyed the different stretches and workout moves that Austin shows in the book. They are simple, yet very effective for boosting energy and they don't really take that long. If you don't have one of her workout DVDs, this would be a very helpful guide on some quick moves to do.

Austin writes in a very relatable way that gives the reader the feeling that they are being motivated by Austin herself. Get Energy is an easy read and if you implement the suggestions into your life, you will notice a difference - I did.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading and using Get Energy to bring more positive energy into my life. If you need an energy boost into your life too, this is the perfect book to help you do just that.

* Thank you to the publisher of Get Energy, Center Street, part of the Hachette Book Group, for providing me with a copy of this book for review. All opinions expressed are my own.

I groaned when I got this book and thought, oh not another self-help diet lose weight book. But this really isn't one of those books. It's about total body health, inside and out. I loved the chapter: Recharge With People Power. Very helpful. The book shows you how to do one thing a day, and it is simple easy things, that will help you feel better. This book is probably geared for women who are in their 50's, and going through some bodily changes. But it helped me, at only 31. I love how the book is broken down into little sections that allows you to read a little bit, and then put the book down and come back later, and still not have missed anything. Lovely book.

Denise knows what the hell she's talking about. She obviously studies Eastern religion. This book is totally titled incorrectly and looks like some kind of work out or diet book. But this book is so informative about a million different things. It's 239 pages on tips on how to be happy. And they're all completely do-able because it's just about changing your perception on things... looking at things in a different light and understanding that you're just a human and everyone has negative thoughts. There is SO much great advice in this book for de-stressing and being happy I just can't believe how lucky I was to find this at the library. (Hell, I'm giving it a review - I didn't even buy this book from Amazon - but I'm going to!!) It gives advice for every kind of emotional situation someone might find themselves in and also preparing yourself for the next time you will encounter such emotion. I book marked so many quotes and plan on sharing them with friends that I know who I've always tried to communicate these ideas to but never found the correct way to explain them. I'm thoroughly impressed.

It DOES give advice on getting energy. The best too. She really knows how to treat the body.

OH! And she doesn't go on rants talking about herself throughout the whole book like soo many other "self help" books I've found are like. The books is to the point, smart, and about YOU the reader. Not only that but she's a great writer. There's nothing foo-foo about her writing style. She's a wonderful writer and writes from the heart. Everything is very clear and really lifts your spirits.
