I found this book to be inspiring, I speed read books first time and if I find it interesting or useful, I read it more in depth and this is one of those books. I also found some interesting things that even can benefit men.

I was awarded the finished copy of this book through a Goodreads giveaway and would like to extend my appreciation for the opportunity to read and review this positively fabulous text.

The beauty guide is highly informative, featuring a wide variety of solutions and advice regarding everything from teeth and nails to reconstructive surgery. This is the ultimate girlfriend's guide to comfort and confidence during a trying time, providing a plethora of resources for further research as well as fri

I won this book from goodreads. Thank you for picking my name. I am a two time breast cancer survivor and I wish I had this book in 2002 the first time and again in 2016 the 2nd time. I've read a lot of books on the subject, but none were as informative and down to earth as this this one. It's woman to woman and survivor to survivor. This book tells you how to make your self look better to feel better. or as the book states, "How to Look YOUR Best When You Feel Your Worst" When I was going throu ...more

Thankfully, I don't need this book -- I won it in a Goodreads giveaway recently. However, it's so interesting and informative that I found myself reading it anyway! And I now have a great gift option for anyone I know who is dealing with cancer. The book covers skin care, dental care, nail & hair care, and on and on. The book reads as if you're sitting with your no-nonsense best friend who is telling you things that you will never hear in your doctor's office. I can't think of a more helpful ...more

I loved this book. What a great gift for any women who is going through cancer. Tons of tips and tricks that I have used and they work. This book really made me smile knowing the author battled her own cancer. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and I am almost there and I know with lipstick and putting one foot forward soon it will all be over.

Excellent! Even a man can appreciate the clear and effective tips. A big part of the battle with this disease is attitude, and this book goes a long way in promoting a positive attitude toward both survival and recovery!

Good simple clear information for people that need some help like this because going through chemo and other treatments affects everyone a little different. I'm sharing this with my family and friends and local cancer center to help everyone that I can.

Shelves: 2019, self-help
I'm facing four months of adjuvant chemotherapy for stage 1 ovarian cancer, I wanted to feel as prepared as a person can be and you have to be careful with the internet as it can really scare the living sh*t out of you if you're not careful. Being a book worm by habit, I thought a book like this would do me good and it did. There's a lot that is beyond my control at the moment and although I'm not a typically girly girl, having stocks of nice body wash and cutical oil, some nice headscarves and ...more
