    I got interested in the book after a brief and torrid romance with a barmaid (female!) who was reading it that the time we met. The book was an introduction and opening to a brief and torrid romance. Most men would be appalled by the books contents, but like it or not, I had to agree with the author in about 75% of the book, liking to or not. The book is geared to young women.

I would recommend the book to younger inexperienced women.

    This is a charming little workbook for girls of any age. It is feminine and cute and allows plenty of room for self-discovery and tips to get through THOSE days. Wish I would have had this when I was a teen.

    I bought this and gave it to several Young Women. I loved that she was trying to target this market that is bombarded with comparisons to impractical and often unattainable goals. This gave some stability, hope and reassurance that each of us is unique and lovable!

    This is a book I often use in therapy session with young girls, teens and adult women. I love how it empowers women to love themselves for who they are and it guides them through a journey of self-discovery.

    Meh. This is basic psychotherapy...I don't remember what another commenter could possibly have found "Christian and Bible-centric," the author being known for an inclusive kind of generally theistic spirituality, but I'd say it's too therapy-centric for the teenagers whose company I enjoy. When all teenagers want to do is sit around staring into space or at TV, cut themselves, etc., workbooks of self-awareness may be indicated. When they want to learn and do more in the real world, books about t Meh.

When all teenagers want to do is sit around staring into space or at TV, cut themselves, etc., workbooks of self-awareness may be indicated. When they want to learn and do more in the real world, books about the things that interest them are a better choice. So there's a market for this book, but I wouldn't give it to my own niece, or to young women like most or all of the students I used to teach. It's important for adults not to be deceived by the cheerful look of this book and others in its genre. Adults see all those bright flower-color graphics with messages like "I'm wonderful, I'm lovable," while the questions recommended for the teenybopper's reflection include a much higher proportion of "What are the things I don't like about myself?" The overall effects on teenagers who weren't originally depressed can be extremely depressing. Nobody in Maryland ever described Iyanla Vanzant as a depressing person to know...but as I read this book I tried to picture an ordinary 14-year-old working through it, and my impression was that using this workbook is a way a girl who was simply bored, frustrated, not understanding ninth grade algebra, etc., would be likely to become depressed. On the other hand a reader who is already convinced that she's a repulsive little mess might well begin to feel a little better, at least enough to get out of bed, by listing some things she does like about herself along with all the many things she doesn't like. I don't believe that a lot of teenagers are living at that level of discouragement. The ones I've known best may have felt discouraged when their sex/growth hormones ebbed while the less interesting ones surged, but basically they were or are comfortable with themselves. But the ones who really do feel chronically bummed-out might benefit from psychotherapy a la Vanzant. So, in conclusion: know your student. (About all these books "recommended by another bookseller"...no, most of the ones currently in my stockpile did not come from a failed bookseller! She had to downsize her collection because the building is being remodelled. She picked some good books, and will probably be back on the scene in a year or so.)

    It was a very inspirational book that helped me get through my own hard times when I had no self confidence or self affirmation.

    Very uplifting and gave me some great tools to apply to my life. It put a lot on my mind and those questions made me realize some things I should of seen a long time ago...
