I purchased several copies of this book (from Amazon and others) to distribute them as Christmas gifts to the women in my family and also to selected friends.
They liked the book's layout and the excercises were useful and easy to follow. I can already see the change in the women whose confidence is beginning to increase through their verbal communication. Even their outlook about their life experiences have changed to a more positive one. They now display a devil-may-care attitude which is refreshing for their children and their husbands too!
I myself think the first edition where Gael speaks of her own experiences and hardship, was far better and far more inspiring. It was written as a friend telling another friend to 'snap out of it'! (It was a blue cover with yellow or white text...and cartoons inside!). This new edition, reads like a self-help book with bullet points...very formal).
I'd have liked to get hold of the old version with a new shiny cover so that I could hand those out as gifts!
Nevertheless, Gael's book was very helpful to the women around me so a thumbs up! Thanks. :)
