This is a good book--not a great book, but better than OK. Even for the issues I don't necessarily struggle with, there were nuggets I could take away and offer friends who may have different challenges from mine. When I did identify, I thought her 'Best Yes' advice was typically very good.
One issue I had while reading the book was her tendency to make pretty black & white statements. For example, "There are no perfect choices." I can't agree with this. I believe we sometimes are so clear about God's will that it IS a perfect choice. I'd say that there are no perfect OUTCOMES to our choices because we live in a fallen world, and we don't live in a vacuum.
Typically there are three chapters dealing with a given subject. There are other examples where the first chapter on a given topic states things in a very black & white way (in an almost worldly advice way), without leaving room for God. I'd be underlining and writing in the margins about why I didn't agree with the list of steps to take (that didn't include God's input). In the next chapter, she would introduce God into the equation, and actually be in conflict with what she had said in the prior chapter. This probably sounds like semantics, but people don't always read a book from cover to cover, so I think it can be a dangerous technique. Personally, I'd prefer a statement that isn't so black & white--one that lists the steps to take but also alludes to making room for God, as 'will be discussed in the next chapter', for example.
I think this probably is a very good book for someone who is really in need of creating balance in their life. It's just not the season I am in.
