it was ok
Read from November 20 to December 01, 2011

To be truthful I ran out of time before our book club discussed it . . . . and maybe it's a 2 1/2 stars. . . maybe in those last few chapters I'd change it higher? It just wasn't the perfect match for where I am at . . . but there there were things I liked.

I liked at the beginning of the book - the analogy of "needing to change the lens through which I viewed everything" Perspective . . . . can make a drastic difference.

I liked one of her "Secret of Adulthood" : "Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good." Sometimes since I can't do something perfect - I don't even start . .. and something would be better than nothing!
