Not worth the 20 minutes it will take to read. Less insightful than Dr. Seus's "The Sneetches".

The only redeeming thing about this book is it won't waste a lot of your time or money. That said, it is a waste of both your time and your money. There is nothing remotely engaging about the writing style, the characters, the story, or the little world that is so poorly created to tell it. The "truths" about change that the author attempts to mine throughout the story are poorly illustrated and are themselves extremely simplistic to the point of being worthless. Anyone who has purchased a new car or moved to a new community has already absorbed and understood all the trivial points about going through and accepting change that were brought out in this book. You are better off reflecting on those experiences as they will provide better insights, cost no money, and be much more enjoyable.
I did read the reviews prior to buying this book and thought it might be worthwhile as I have enjoyed and benefited from other short, direct books such as "Fish" by Lundin and Paul. If you want a quick read on change, Dr. Seus's short story "The Sneetches" is much more worth while, insightful, and written for a more advanced reader. I would love to get my money and time back.
