This book has really inspired me to acknowledge things that were bugging me about myself. The author is kind enough to not only pinpoint ideas that can make for a better life but also provides that little nudge at the end of each short,to the point, chapter to move the reader to action. It just all makes so much sense. Ms. Gallagher serves up different items on her suggestion menu in just the right amounts with the perfect flavor for each one. Easy to read, hard to put down, wonderful to share. I think it would be fun to have a close group of friends get together once a week and share their experiences chapter by chapter. I can see where this would make for some great discussion.

The title of the book in itself was almost a lifesaver for me. It was exactly what was needed. Gallagher's 'to the core' writing really got through to me. I originally borrowed it from a library, but then knew immedately only a few pages into it that it was going to be a keeper. The book is organzied not in lists of how to improve ones self, but rather it's taken one idea per week, so to speak. It's organized so that an individual can really dive into each self improvement suggestion and get the most out of her teachings.
I got so much out of this book, I'm not only recommending it to other friend, but buying a couple of copies to pass out to friends. I think anyone and everyone can look at this book as a breath of fresh air and feel motivated to make tiny but significant changes.

Right now I have this book from the library , but am considering buying it. I do think you have to work it a step at a time and it is a commitment. I read thru the whole thing pretty quickly to get an overall view of the book. A few chapters are a bit cliche but overall I think it's a good book and if you do the work, can really be insightful. I'm not a big fan of Buddha and new age stuff, which she mentions at times, but it seems she was trying to cover all bases, mentioning God, too. It doesn't seemed to be biased one way or the other, which I appreciate because I don't like to be told I need to believe in some philosophy or religion I don't care to. So if you are serious about this and plan to do the work, I think this is a good book. I have put some of the steps already into my own life but plan to go back and go thru it at a slower pace. Good luck on your own personal journey.
