I felt this book was condescending in tone, and was written in a cheer-leading, enthusiastic way that I found annoying.

It made me think she doesn't know the meaning of the word, "structure."

Positive, new age wisdom that can be found in most health magazine. Glad to know she is making healthy choices.
