This is the most positive way I can review this book: I believe in positive thinking. I agree negative thoughts can be self deprecating. But no matter how hard I believed this book would be good, it was not. Which probably doesn't matter since all who would like this book would never entertain any negative thoughts (or comments) about it anyway. On the bright(more positive) side, I now know that I don't like it, so I no longer have to use mental energy wanting to love it.
