There were parts of the book I really liked, like how we need to understand ourselves before we can understand others or have relationships be successful. I liked some of the activities she gave at the end of each chapter. Some of her views about men & women being the "perfect union" make me wonder how she'd feel about same-sex relationships.
There seems to be a consensus here that this book didn't have a lot of substance to it. Maybe I just haven't read enough relationship advice type books, but I really enjoyed this one. The author offers a fresh perspective and opens up about her own insecurities. I appreciated her honesty and gained a lot from reading this.
This was a quick read and I liked how it was broken up into topics of interest. I didn't feel like there was anything new as far as advice that has already been given by millions of self help authors...take time to pamper yourself, exercise, eat right, treat others the way you would like to be treated etc... I did like her personal stories about her own struggles and how she applied the principles to her own life.
