I was given a copy of this title, free, in exchange for my honest opinion.
Sometimes you come across a book that you read at the completely right time in your life, making you enjoy it more than you may have at any other time in your life. And sometimes just the opposite happens, you read a good book at the wrong time and you don’t get out of it what you could have. And I think that the latter is what happened with this book. Had I read it when I was first approved for this title, I may have taken everything that was offered in this book and ran with it. Instead, there wasn’t enough her to hold my attention.
To be fair, I didn’t make it very far into this book. I didn’t finish the first chapter, had it been available on audio, I may have continued. I enjoyed what I did read from the first chapter. I did get some things out of it, in fact I had a conversation with a friend about how I felt inspired. But, then it kept going. I think the first chapter had 54 pages in it and I was done after around page 30. It just went past the point where I felt it made sense. I was interested in the rest of the book, but not enough to power through, especially if it was filled with extra long chapters that just kept hammering home the point. Maybe I am wrong and there is more to it than that. But I didn’t stick around to find out.
