Sorry about the harsh title. I didn't hate this book, but I was very disappointed. I was probably disappointed because I have read many of these types of books, so I have heard most of the stuff he presents before. I agree with the reviewer that said this book was for the lowest common denominator. I thought it was going to be an overall philosophy, but mostly the author goes about giving specific tips. I did find the "drink apple cider vinegar for an upset stomach" tip interesting, but I wasn't looking for that type of advice when i bought this book.
I wish I had read the other reviews before buying this "book." I'd read "Infinite Possibilities," by the same author, which I rated a 5, so I thought this would be just as good. It was really stupid, though, and with no continuity, it was hard to even get through.
My title says it all....seemed to be more obvious information in this one, or maybe I'm just getting smarter after having read the first one!
I agree with several reviewers; I am by no means a prude, either, but I was grossed out by some of the profanity in this book. However, it did really open my eyes to how unhealthy I had been eating and inspired me to make a change (for like three days). That's why I gave it four stars. But I did skip a lot of the second part of the book because it turned into vegan propaganda.
I have listened to many of Joel Osteen's sermons and books, so I thought I might be bored by repetitive information, but I wasn't at all. I do love Joel, but I must say I might have enjoyed Victoria's book even more than Joels'!
