Overall I liked this book. It had lots of interesting things, but I felt quite a bit was missing and there wasn't enough on everything. I felt some sections were too 'jokey' and she could've made them a bit more serious even though she is a comedic author. I would've like to have seen sections on different sorts of addictions other the 'standard' ones and also on other sorts of mental illnesses and phobias and also sections of over-sleeping, internet bullying and some other things like healing from traumatic events from childhood and anything traumatic you've experienced. Even though the book was a lot in it, there's quite a bit missing and not much on some things. What about petty things like envy and being more creative and also not being liked for being yourself by anyone? Or perhaps a section on social phobia?

I felt like so much of it could've been covered more seriously. I liked the book, but I wouldn't use it much as a reference. Still recommend to others though, as it's interesting for what it does have.

Kaz Cooke Thank you for your comment. Actually, all the subjects you've mentioned are in the book except over-sleeping. Please use the index to explore. For example, look up 'shy' instead of 'social phobia'. For changing your life to include more creativity, and change, see pages 731, 655-6...it's a big book already, nearly 800 pages, so people interested in more specialised subsections could try the excerpted Women's Stuff ebooks or some of the websites and books by other people I recommend in the 'more info' sections. Cheers.
