Sarah Ban Breathnach is a spellbinding storyteller. Only problem she has so many stories to tell in this book---her success with
"Simple Abundance," her instant wealth, her book tours, her Isaac Newton home in England, her marriage to an Englishman, her loss of money, her poverty crisis. But she left a lot of unanswered questions. What happened to her first marriage? Where was the daughter she loved so much in Simple Abundance? Why did she not turn her for help during this emotional trial. I found one chapter was trying to help the reader, next she started on her British husband, then she brought in 1930 women's magazines that she had discovered at a summer flea market in Simple Abundance . I kept wishing that she had told her own tragedy from beginning to end. Then moved on to how it relates to today's economic problems. The reader is never introduced to the British husband (where did they meet, what brought them together in the first place) until Sarah is denouncing him for wanting all her money. I'm almost through with the book and truthfully, I get a headache trying to put together this puzzle--Sarah's downfall,today's economy mixed with Miss Piggy's self help book and women's magazines from 1930s plus bites and pieces from "Simple Abundance". I wish Sarah success with her new book, but her editor needed to organize all her material so the story flows not jumps. A COLLECTOR OF SBB's BOOKS, AND SIMPLE ABUNDANCE FAN.

I loved this author's other books and found them inspiring. But this book is truly awful. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is depressing, disorganized and a rehash of her other books. For starters, the author seems to assume that we all share her enchantment with material goods. Uh...that was the whole point of Simple Abundance, Sarah! You told us that material goods would not bring happiness. Yet she obviously went on an insane spending spree, married an emotionally abusive manipulator, and then got hosed in the UK legal system. It's hard to feel sorry for someone who made millions, then blew it on silly purchases (buying houses on a whim? Come on, let's think about that for a moment).
The worst part of this book is it has made me toss out her other books. I have lost respect for this author. Even worse, it appears that she has lost respect for herself.
Not all women are stacking up the collection notices and divorce lawyer bills on their sister's kitchen counter. In fact, some of us have discovered the REAL path to financial serenity - living within your means, and saving for a rainy day.

(Note: This is only a semi-review, as I did not read the entire book! But for a reason!)

I also bought several copies of SIMPLE ABUNDANCE for friends, both young and old. That book resonated with me, at a time when I was raising young children.

I picked up a copy of her newest book, PEACE & SERENITY, at the library last night. I was a bit skeptical, having an idea of what this book was about, but was still excited to open it up. Well, I didn't last long. I even remember thinking, as I read several lines in her intro, that I HAVE to write a review of this book (even though I seldom do), because this book, in my opinion, is NOT going to help others.

First, her tone is completely different in this book. OK, like I admitted, I only read the intro, and skimmed through it. But first, she decides to address this book solely to women, in her quotes, and text. That's OK. But, it's almost as though she paints women, as a completely different breed than men, as though we are persecuted, and so misunderstood. She seemed confused and angry in her intro. One of the main lines that jumped out at me, and made me cringe, was "Think of me as your personal guide,", after going on and on about all of the negativity that is associated with money, her bad experiences, etc.! On one hand, she's got a huge audience of women, open to her message, then she tried to juggle admitting to her own faults, tries to get us to connect with negative ideas about money, then asks us to look to her, as a 'guide'??

The biggest reason I will not continue reading this book, is that it confirmed my suspicion...she actually puts in writing, and print, her negative thoughts, and supposedly our own, which I think is counter productive. Words are energy, in metaphysical thought.

First, let me state that I am a Sarah Ban Breathnach fan. I've read all her books and I've lost track of how many copies of SIMPLE ABUNDANCE I've given as gifts. So, last year when I read SBB had a new book coming out, I was pleased and made plans to buy it. After reading PEACE AND PLENTY, I am not sorry I bought it, but I'm thankful I had a coupon and a gift card to use when I did. This book is set up like SBB's previous books with quotations and short chapters. The main difference in PEACE AND PLENTY is that it reads more like a journal someone kept while he or she was in counseling than a polished and revised book. The chapters left me thinking, "Wait, what was her point?" Another difference is that in SIMPLE ABUNDANCE, readers are told to find a pretty notebook and keep a Gratitude Journal. I realize that eventually readers could buy a SIMPLE ABUNDANCE GRATITUDE JOURNAL, but in PEACE AND PLENTY, readers are told to keep a PEACE AND PLENTY JOURNAL OF WELL SPENT MOMENTS, which made me feel like I was being set up to buy yet another book.
I kept thinking about the first book, SIMPLE ABUNDANCE. I thought of it so much that I skimmed through it again after finishing PEACE AND PLENTY and my main impression of the new book was confirmed. Why didn't Sarah Ban Breathnach follow her own advice and admonitions about the Simple Abundance path? If she had, she wouldn't have ended up in the mess she details in PEACE AND PLENTY. And, the sad thing to me is that by the end of the new book, I felt like she is still lost. I'm sorry for all that happened to Sarah, and I hope this new book helps her, but my recommendation for anyone looking for real financial advice to read Jean Chatzky or Suze Orman.
