We read this with my Sunday School class. Even though I found it incredibly cheesy to the point of annoyance at times, I did find myself thinking of the book in a positive light when I was having a bad day. (I can think of one bad day in particular.)

For me though, there were too many lists. Like Cathy
. And I'm not a big Cathy fan. Also, the metaphors were a BIT over the top for me. But, I liked the anecdotes.

Sometimes, I think the cheesiness of it detracted from the overall message, which I thought was a really good one. That's why I'm glad we read it as a class, because we could hone in on the message and leave the cheese, the silliness, the overdone metaphors, the "I'm getting paid by the word so I need to add a little bit more here," behind.

Amanda Dude. DUDE.

I know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover . . . but I'm going to anyway. That title is REALLY schmaltzy.

Philip Yeah... sometimes it's an accurate assessment too. The book's not TOO bad, but so far it's stuff that is already evident...
