Rachel Hollis is sounding a wake-up call. She knows that many women have been taught to define themselves in light of other people--whether as wife, mother, daughter, or employee--instead of learning how to own who they are and what they want. With a challenge to women everywhere to stop talking themselves out of their dreams, Hollis identifies the excuses to let go of, the behaviors to adopt, and the skills to acquire on the path to growth, confidence, and believing in yourself.

This book had some great points and some points I definitely disagreed with. Sometimes, I feel like her target audience is the middle-aged, middle-class white woman. This book is not for someone struggling pay check to pay check or trying to figure out how they will feed their family tomorrow. This book is for the woman who feels stuck in her daily routine and feels like she has put herself on the back burner in life.

Wondering why she bothered to write this book. I tried to like it since it's so popular, but after listening to the audio book for about 20 minutes, I could not stand another moment. Filled with buzz words and non-content. Don't bother!

This book was far less offensive than Girl, Wash Your Face. It was still offensive at times but at least she tamed it down. She is very motivating and encouraging and I can really appreciate that part of this book. My qualms with this book revolve around how much she conflicted herself because she would quote a famous saying as her mantra and then go against it. Overall, if you can look past her fat shaming hate speech, this book might encourage you to try something new or to not give up on that thing you are trying at. But for someone who is so big in the public eyes right now, I think she could do well to stop spreading hate.

Some nice takeaways aimed at helping women live the life they dream for themselves (and not anyone else’s dream for them). Easy to read. It is the thinking about how to apply the info to suit oneself that took time.

Rachel Hollis' mission of giving people (mainly women) the tools to change their lives is extraordinary. Her out of the box thinking is very helpful to my "color in the lines" thinking. Yet, her writing style drives me nuts. I was only able to read one chapter at a time early in the book. How many times does she fill the pages with non essential comments about how she is writing on deadline, or with a personal story that is only slightly related to the chapter topic? It feels like she is just writing for word count although her material deserves much more than that.

I want to give the subject matter a 5 and the delivery method a 1, so the book gets a 3. Rachel, I love you and your work and I'm being honest.

I liked this book. Personally, I love apologies and I will never do away with them BUT there is something important to be said about appropriate times when apologies are needed and when we're just throwing apologies out like candy.
