1.0 out of 5 stars everything you need to know about me, me, me, 11 May 2007
This review is from: Everything You Need To Know To Feel Good (Paperback)
I was looking forward to reading this book, having heard much about Candace Pert as a feminist scientist, and its title seemed to promise so much ... but I found the style almost unbearable. I've read many self-help books (as I have recently been ill), and most of them - from Louise Hay to Deepak Chopra - are motivated towards the reader and are compasionate and giving in their advice. But this book was about the author not the readers. It followed Candace as she gave papers, did book signings, met friends for coffee and flew on planes, all the time reminding us what great work she had done and how her audience loved her. I'm sure this is true - but this was not how the book advertised itself. I was hoping for insight and sound advice - what I got was a self-absorbed and meandering disappointment. I've not written a review before - but I was motivated to write this one to save other people from wasting money when there are so many other books that offer so much more.
