I thought that this book was a 'self-help' book, but it was more of a 'lifestyle' book. The first part is about organizing your home which read more like a home improvement book. And the part where she talked about make-up and hair sounded like something from a beauty magazine. The Health and Fitness section was pretty interesting, about how she lost 40 lbs and kept it off by eating smaller portions and exercise. It had some good advice, but when I think of 'self-help' its more on how to improve your outlook on life and be more positive, etc. I didn't feel like this had that. It sounds like she spends so much time working and organizing her house, that I'm wondering when she has time to have fun. She seems pretty happy, so she must sneak it in there somewhere. I was also a little bothered about how she kept calling this guy Keven her 'partner' but would never say if he was her hubby, boyfriend, etc. She'll share that she washes her hair like twice a week and wears thongs, but won't share her relationship status? Weird.
