    A pleasant surprise. Written almost 20 years ago, this book of tips, advice and inspiration for living is still relevant as ever in this age of #selfcare and #mindfulness. In other words, the more things change, the more they stay same.

    amazing, uplifting book. I'm only reading one chapter a night, so it will take me a while to read.

    There was a lot of good advice, but that's what makes this book more about breadth rather than depth. I guess it would make an interesting gift (or an insult) to a Type A woman who is trying to be both the perfect mother and career woman. In fact, the author kind of assumes that the reader is someone "balancing" motherhood and job. I was getting married upper-middle-class vibes, but some chapters could still be applied by other living situations.

I guess it would make an interesting gift (or an insult) to a Type A woman who is trying to be both the perfect mother and career woman. In fact, the author kind of assumes that the reader is someone "balancing" motherhood and job. I was getting married upper-middle-class vibes, but some chapters could still be applied by other living situations. An important bit that I learned was that boredom is a form of anxiety. That's why some people have to be "busy" or on to the next challenge. It's an inability to just chill--a lack of mindfulness. So women will pack their schedule full, stress and hurry on a daily basis, and then they find themselves "sweating the small stuff." Basically, even if there is a moment of peace, "something has to be done." I'm not a busy person. I tend to have jobs that aren't erratic or particular, nor do I have kids, so I was looking more for advice based on overthinking and overanalyzing every detail of existence. This was not the book for me. It's not scientific or philosophical enough for that. Still, this would be a decent read for someone that is questioning why they hate their family and their job while they're considering tearing out their hair in frustration--aka perfectionists who can finally admit that they can't do it all (like normal people).

    The book provided me with a couple of useful takeaway messages; however, it was quite repetitive as if the author was determined to end up with 100 chapters no matter what. Additionally, related topics are not addressed coherently, but scattered across different chapters pages apart, which makes drawing a complete picture more difficult than necessary. Overall, this is a great book if it was the first motivational book you ever read and you don't know where to start in order to live a happier li The book provided me with a couple of useful takeaway messages; however, it was quite repetitive as if the author was determined to end up with 100 chapters no matter what.

Overall, this is a great book if it was the first motivational book you ever read and you don't know where to start in order to live a happier life. In it's 100 tiny chapters, it surely touches at least one aspect in your life that has room for improvement. Naturally, it is impossible to go into depths with any of the topics, but that's not the goal of this book.

    Seriously... the only reason I can relate to 90% of what was written in this book is because I watch American movies and TV shows and am vagualy familiar with the stereotypical "American way of life". I do not imply that the advice given in this book is false... for the author. I just want you to keep in mind it was written by an idle, typical American housewife of a (rich) man. Or, to put short - even though we're both modern women, we are worlds apart. Planets, in some senses.

    A fun and easy read for a hot (and sweaty) summer day. Thought-provoking? Yes!! Will it motivate readers to change their less than desirable habits? Maybe! My favourite chapters: "My Way Is Not 'the' Way --It's Just My Way" and "Treasure the Journey". P.S. Not going to sweat to write a longer review! The book title speaks for itself!

    This book has so many good tips for us to be more relax, cheerful, but stronger in the same time. Women should set their own happiness before nurturing others. It makes sense for me. How can we become a good mother, a playful teacher, a best friend for our girl's gank, if we don't know how to please ourselves? Listen to our intuition and embrace our logical side too

    It was ok. If this is the first ever self help-inspirational book you have ever read, I am sure you will think it is great. I thought it was ok. Nothing new or amazing..... I wonder how many women received this as a gift and never made the time to read it.

    I enjoy doing self-work so this book was perfect for me. I liked that the book was specifically geared towards women because we can tend to be in our heads a lot. Most of all, I liked the no-nonsense approach of openly discussing subjects we women deal with...but tend to cover up or down play. I like reality & honesty no matter what the outcome may be. This book is great for getting real with yourself without being harsh. A quick, enjoyable read. I enjoy doing self-work so this book was perfect for me.

    This is a "must own/read". I found the daily input/encouragement to be incredibly valuable in the quest for self improvement, in this case distinctly for women. I can not count the times I've read this cover to cover. I purchased several copies as gifts for my girlfriends and female family members. Anyone finding disappointment with-in the covers of this little gem must have Eeyore's blood running through their veins.

    Enjoyable, and interesting novel that makes you contemplate life and how you live it. Broken down into 100 sections, with unique title and message to convey. Little tips and words of wisdom to improve your daily life. Particularly targeted at women and issues, advice directed at this audience. Books like this are a gem. A bunch of topics, briefly discussed with examples and advice. Recommend of course!

    This book was great. I read it right after I got married. It's a book about slowing down, and not getting worked up over little things. It's a very sweet, endearing book. The original is my fave, but I love this one as well. I love how it's catered to women, and boy does Kristina Carlson know how our minds work!

    Every scenario you could possible encounter in life. No matter what age you are, you will find it in this book. It help me put lots of worries in perspective and let me know that I am not the only one who obsesses over the little things.

    helped to see the importance of quiet time and time for myself. I do so much for others in my job, I forget about caring for myself. Had some important points, but book became redundant and boring after awhile.
