After thoroughly reading this book with as open a mind as I could, I can honestly say I struggled to find good things to say about it. The author claims that her intention in writing it is to help influence other women - average women - to take better care of themselves and be in the best physical shape they can be as they age gracefully. I do not see how the average woman can be inspired by a woman who constantly reminds her readers throughout the book how naturally thin she is; how easy it is for her to exercise; how lucky she is to be able to afford the best of everything. I nearly put the book down when Robin felt the need to point out that the camera adds ten pounds - that she is actually much thinner in person.

It seems to me that the kind of woman most likely to be drawn to this book are truly average women; women who are struggling with their weight; women who cannot afford thousands of dollars on spa treatments; women who don't walk around in Robin's favorite four-to-six inch heels. Robin's list of beauty products and cosmetics that she "simply can't go without" contained very few items that the average woman would even know where to find, yet be able to afford. The average woman looking for inspiration to help her better her life needs advice from, well... an AVERAGE woman.

This book was not for me, only because I struggled to see the good advice behind the author's maddeningly smug personal narrative. I'm sure it was in there somewhere. Was I inspired? No. How can I relate when I never have to worry about Michael Bolton showing up at my door when my hair looks terrible? I do not recommend this book for it's health and beauty advice. If you're a soap opera fan, though - you may be entertained.

I heard of this book when Ms. McGraw appeared several months ago on the Oprah Winfrey show to talk about her experiences with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. I borrowed the book from the local library, and after reading it, was glad I had not spent money to purchase it. The chapter on bioidentical hormones was a rehash of what she had said on Oprah, that she wasn't willing to just "accept" the diagnosis of menopause and after much research, she decided to start on a protocol of bioidentical hormones instead of synthetic hormones and the antidepressants that so many women take for menopausal symptoms. She also spoke of how she called her family together for a meeting to tell them she was in menopause (I guess the point was to counsel women that it shouldn't be a taboo subject, but it came across as a Robin feeling like the world should revolve around her because she is feeling menopausal).
Her husband's show, the Dr. Phil Show, did an entire program recently on biodientical hormone replacement therapy----while I had high hopes the show would be truly educational on this very important topic, it came across as being a one hour infomercial for the book, and most of the guests were specifically presented as being "saved" by Robin as she took them to her personal BHRT physician. What made me angry is that the Oprah shows totally ignored the issues of financial costs and insurance coverage (or lack thereof) and many women assume that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is something only wealthy women can afford----and the Dr. Phil Show did nothing to clarify those issues, and Robin only made passing mention of the issue in the book.

I like Robin, and enjoy seeing her when she is on the show. I had high hopes for this book, as I enjoyed her first one. However, this book was a huge disappointment. If you read magazines or watch television at all, you won't get any information here you haven't already heard numerous times. I guess if I had her money, I could afford to look younger the way she does. But for the rest of us, the average women in America, this book was a big waste of money.

Fortunately, I got this book from the library which I often do before investing in a book. I took some notes from reading it and was prepared to buy the book UNTIL I used Robin's "recipe" for a morning drink to jump start your metabolism and energize your day. Since I have returned the book I can't tell you what page the "recipe" is on but it is in a highlighted gray box. She says to mix 1 CUP of Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 CUP of warm water and 1-2 Tablespoons of concentrated lemon juice. I managed to drink it down but OH MY GOD! It burned in my throat, it burned in my esophagus and it burned in my stomach for hours. I lost count of how many Tums and antacids I used that day. Several days later, determined to better my health and appearance, I thought "OK - I'll start out in smaller proportions and build up to her recommendation." This time I mixed 1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar and 1-1/2 cups warms water and just 2-3 drops (not Tablespoons) of lemon juice. This time I gagged it down. OH MY GOD again - It burned just as badly and within minutes I vomited it up so it could burn my stomach, esophagus and throat a second time on the way back up. From that moment on I thought - NO WAY! I don't believe for a second that Robin drinks this.
I went to the Dr. Phil website and e-mailed the situation to Robin under the link "Ask Robin a Question." No response from anyone. Not Robin, not a staff member, no one. One would think they could be courteous enough to say, "Yup, there was a typo that the publisher missed and we are so sorry that this happened to you." One would also think that there should be a published notice on the web from Robin and/or the publisher acknowledging this typo/misprint.
