Fun read, but highly unrealistic
on May 24, 2013
This was a "feel good" book. I liked the overall message of the book: taking care of yourself mentally, physically and emotionally is important. This means being honest with yourself, and making time for yourself. Jill and Dana definitely made some good points throughout the book.
Unfortunately, overall, I felt that it was a bit over the top and "Hollywood-y". I think that they have good intentions with their message, but much of what they suggested was just not realistic for the everyday wife/mom/girlfriend. Ultimately, they come across as out of touch and uninformed about the audience they are reaching out to. Their section on the relationship makeover, for instance, was just ludicrous. There are some things that just shouldn't feel like a "to do" list.
I really wish I would have checked this one out from the library instead...not sorry I read it, but wish I wouldn't have spent money on it.
