The Elf-help series is fun to read; yet with their simple, down-to-earth approach,there's a feeling of being gently uplifted and given self-worth just when you may need it. The illustrations make their point as well with elf-like characters rather than choosing certain groups of people by age or race. So, the books are meant for everyone. In this particular book, being good to yourself helps you to find a happy medium and not feel guilty about treating yourself the way you deserve.

Perhaps the advice is so outdated now that it just seems obvious, but that idea doesn't really help. It is simply a list of a whole bunch of rather "duh" advice that doesn't take much of a genius to conclude coupled with a bunch of illustrations of ...more
