"Effectively employs real-life examples to model self-acceptance."-Kirkus' Reviews"Flora Morris Brown contributes another great work to the field of positive psychology. From the cover to the content, her words shine. Pleasant voice and writing style." Judge, Ben Franklin Awards, Independent Book Publishing Association
"Brown's joyful exuberance, evident throughout, makes her book an inspiring and worthwhile addition to the self-help field."-Publishers Weekly
"This book had me thinking of the author as a friend, mentor and confidant by the time I had finished her opening chapters. Brown is honest, outspoken and extremely generous in sharing her life stories with her audience. As a fellow baby boomer, I wryly smiled at her references to the rather grim parenting methods of the 1950s, and I applauded her efforts to be one of those parents who did not continue the trend of harsh child-rearing, opting for a more joyful and humane approach.
Her book is filled with ideas on how to start adding happiness to your life, from tiny steps to whopping big life changing ones, but they're all sound and quite inspiring. You might want to bear in mind that the author had her third child while working on her Ph.D., giving her nearly super-human stature in my mind, but I think that's part of the magic in this book. "-Jack Magnus, Readers' Favorite
