This book is for them.
Against the grain of the typical "workout book", Wallen's book is more of an inspirational guide and resource for women. By focusing on positive thinking, realistic expectations, dealing with negative people, and ignoring the mirror, Wallen outlines a no-nonsense roadmap that women can use as a catalyst for change, or even a springboard for moving to the next level (if that is what they desire). It is also a fairly quick read, and can be used for bite-sized inspiration, as needed. His workout is quite basic, but includes video demonstrations that can be accessed by people who may be unfamiliar with how to execute a movement...a definite plus.
Make no mistake, it is warm, fuzzy, and definitely not for men. However, I'd be lying if I told you that I didn't take a few things from the book that I could use not only personally, but with my female clients as well. My wife, who HATES all things workout related, absolutely loved this book and has already gone through it twice. This says a lot, and the fact that she immediately felt inspired to work out again and begin to make positive changes was impressive.
Overall, I highly recommend this book for the everyday, beginner female who is not content with a gym atmosphere and wants to make positive, healthy changes.
He took some psycho babble from a Psych101 class and is basically telling people to "feel better" about themselves.
There is no new information or even old information said in a new way.
I believe he is targeting women because of the "self worth" angle. His attempts at empathy are laid on so thick it is obvious he is really pushing his coaching.
Finally, buyer beware. He makes constant references and links to his mind and body makeover course. But then who can blame him for using his literature to advertise and sell his services. And after all, it only cost me a few hours of reading time. Yes, got the book for free.
Edited to add: due to comments on my review, I am suspicious that positive reviews are from friends, acquaintances, and social media followers of the author, rather than from objective readers.
