Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Developing self-esteem is the key to living a life beyond your "wildest imaginings," according to this book, which is divided into 10 "esteemable actions" designed to get downtrodden readers thinking about how to change their lives. Ward certainly speaks from experience: a former drug-addicted alcoholic and call girl, she turned her life around, graduated from Georgetown University Law Center and is now a motivational speaker and president and CEO of her own company. Ward urges readers to keep a journal to reflect upon goals and answer questions such as "What do you value?", "What does financial freedom mean to you?", and "What’s most important to you today?" While much of the advice is common sense—she proclaims the importance of living your dreams, being your own best friend and avoiding a victim mentality—this well-meaning guide all too often slides into overly familiar territory (procrastination is the enemy; you should eat well and take care of yourself) and simplistic platitudes such as "Denial is the enemy of success," or "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail."

From Booklist

Ward, a practicing attorney with a harrowing life story of a dysfunctional childhood and recovery from alcohol and drug addiction, offers inspiring and practical advice on building self-esteem. Based on her own remarkable turnaround, Ward offers specific advice on several aspects of life, including career, finances, relationships, and self-improvement. She advises readers to keep a journal of esteemable acts--taking risks, articulating dreams, helping others--and to record those actions and experiences that mark progress in developing self-esteem. She recommends self-examination to detail character strengths and shortcomings and offers advice on how to avoid becoming "a casualty to limited thinking." In each chapter, Ward offers practical exercises to keep the reader focused on achieving goals. This is a practical self-help guide written by a woman who has overcome great odds to succeed.
