This book was very inspiring. Definitely something I will add to my personal collection. I read the quotes/advice/affirmations for each day I had it and also the one for my birthday!! I recommend this book to anyone who would love to have a burst of inspiration added to their daily lives.
I had to read this book once before, a while a go when I was working for a college summer program, so I think it's only fitting that I read it again as I approach 40 and reflect on how life has changed since college and how the affirmations in this book can only help encourage me to get through the next stages of life. Black Pearls is a great book to give as a gift (just as I received it) to college grads, BFFs, or anyone who you think needs some inspiration. Get you a copy and enjoy!
