The "facts" presented in this book, are fictitious to say the least. The author wrote about things she think she knows, but doesn't. It is like hearing what other people say about other countries they've never been in. And then combine all this "knowledge" into a book.Mix it with "Oh, I'm So Important", then sprinkle it with "Only I know what's best for you", and you'll have the idea of what this book is all about.
Of course not. I like fashion. Fashion is fun, and anyone, at some point in life, has to find his or hers style (or suffer the consequences :-). I would absolutely love to listen to a GOOD book in this genre.
The author wynes about her hard life and her childhood for a good first half of this book. I mean at some point she actually starts sobbing... The only option for me to "get out" of this sobbing was to skip to the next chapter, or turn it off completely.You however, have a third option - Do Not purchase this book!
The only purpose, I believe, this book was written for - is an advertisement of the author services. There are many books of this sort have been written lately. Few of them I've read. A good book is a very good advertisement indeed. But a poorly written one will fire back. I think it is a common knowledge, that any person, who thinks of him/herself as a writer should posses.
If you have never seen the "Color Me Beautiful" books this might be helpful but, there is a lot of material that is better seen than listened to. She did have some (minutes) of helpful hints for men and some about shopping and calculating the cost per wear which is helpful if you have never been exposed to it.
Maybe, as I said there is a lot of information that is better with examples. Was most unhappy with the fact that almost all of the material came right out of the "Color Me Beautiful"books. What did not was shaming and self-promotion.
Her reading was ok but a bit flat. There were constant references to the courses and seminars she teaches and that really began to sound like shameless self-promotion. This did not have to be a 6 and a half hour listen! Ugh!
I was upset and frankly could barely drag myself beyond the two hour mark as they were mostly a full on diatribe about the decline of American fashion and the carelessness with which we dress. She's correct of course; I just don't want to hear hours of shaming about it.
Find a better book and one with colored examples and buy a hard copy.
