Cheryl gives real life applicability to how challenging it can be to take care of ourselves and she shares alot of her own personal story and how she recognized the traps and worked out of them.

Would you listen to The Art of Extreme Self-Care again? Why?

Yes I am going to listen to it again, we always get more out of what we listen to the more we hear it.

Worthwhile, but....

This is uplifting and informative, as others have mentioned, but I hoped for something a little more useful for my own life. Even tho I am a female, I preferred the thoroughness of the info (and delivery) in Drop Dead Healthy by AJ Jacobs. Laughter is GREAT for your health, and he really made me laugh! That's more my style since I am more recalcitrant in my health practices.

Sweet but twee

This was a bit basic for what I was looking for - common sense really! Found the voice sweet but very twee and thus got very irritating towards the end.
