Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

According to journalist and editor Barnett, living out a success trifecta (motherhood, marriage, career) isn't as easy as it looks. Having faced her share of sadness-from death and divorce to dead-end jobs and cheating men-Barrett chronicles her turn from despair to dedication on the path to becoming the first African-American woman to run a major mainstream magazine (recently shuttered Teen People). Eager to share the precepts that govern her productive, gratifying life, Barnett fills this book with sisterly advice; "Realize your value and demand the best" is easily the most pivotal of these tips, which also cover friendship, family, career, style, financial security, personal space, men, creativity and spirituality. Concrete steps point readers toward self-confidence and success: face your fears and "embrace them as a chance for growth" by "composing a list of 10 things that scare you"; keep family close by sending out a newsletter, or devoting one full day a month to them. Unfortunately, clichés outnumber innovative ideas, though personal anecdotes and celebrity Q&As (including Gayle King, Kelly Rowland and Venus Williams) prove revealing and encouraging. A fun, knowing and star-studded guide to success, this self-help is suitable for readers at any stage of life.

I read this book because my girlfriend was reading it (not usually the kind of book I would seek out, a self-help book for women), but once I started into it, i could not put it down. I secretly kept reading it without my girlfriend's knowledge, putting another book jacket over it, so when out in public people would not wonder why I was so intently reading this book! But now that I have finished it and been quite inspired by Ms. Barnett's story, experience and advice, I am no longer embarassed, rather, i am inspired enough to write a review. The very next day i noticed ways that the book had affected my outlook and some of the everyday choices one makes that affect the future.

thanks for sharing, Ms. Barnett...

This book is fabulous - fun and entertaining - filled with humour and celebrities...but the core of the book is the kind of solid advice that keeps you nodding your head while you read because you immediately recognize its truth. Right after I finished the last page I went out and bought copies for my friends, I had to share the inspiration!

Amy Dubois Barnett has written an amazing book that will inspire and motivate you to get the life that you want and deserve. This is the type of book that you would want to read at least one or twice each year to give you that spark that you need to stay focused on getting what you want out of life. In addition to the inspiring words of wisdom from Amy and a few of her celebrity friends, I loved the quizzes in each section. It was like reading a book and a magazine all at the same time. I would recommend this book to every and anyone. This book is simply wonderful. I think I just may give this book to all of my friends and female coworkers this Christmas. I hope you read it and get inspired like I did.

I loved this book. Amy Dubois Barnett did what she set out to do. Inspire women to go out there and get hat they want. She doesn't say it will be easy. But, makes you see how worth it setting out to fulfill your goals would be.

So you aren't the type of person that normally buys "self-help" books? Get this one. And one for each of your girlfriends too. As a magazine editor (who has worked at such varied places as Essence, Honey, Teen People and Harper's Bazaar) Amy Barnett writes a book that is so much more than your typical self-help book. Part personal-anecdotes, part celebrity-interviews, part workbook-exercises and tips, and throughout a loving tribute to her late mother, Amy Barnett touches upon themes that all young women, especially women of color, must wrangle with as they search for their place in this world. This book not only guides focus on your life goals but inspires you to live your dreams. "Get Yours!" is a must-read for any woman who wants more from life, so go get YOURS today and be inspired!

It takes a lot for me to write a review about something because to be honest, I'm not going to waste my time on completing a review unless the product is perfect. This book is just that. This is one of the few "how to" books that talks about the totality of womanhood, including education, career, finances, relationships, and mental health (just to name a few). I have recommended this book to many of my friends, and I plan on purchasing the book as Christmas gifts this year to many more. I hope to one day meet the author so that I can tell her personally just how vital this book is to my collection.

This is by far one of the best books I've ever read! Amy is such an enlightening author. Her advise is real and truly heartfelt. She is smart and knows what she is talking about. I was tremendously inspired and motivated after I read this book. I simply can't thank her enough for writing it! I truly recommend it to anyone who simply wants to stop the nonsense and finally start living life to its full potential.
