Inspiring is an Understatement

This book pushes you to be authentic. I mean truly, if you don’t walk away from this understanding the power you hold when you are true to yourself, you didn’t listen to the book.

There is no excuse for not putting your best foot forward and getting done what you need to do. Take time for yourself of course, but work!

It’s alright

I’ve read most of her books. This was basically just the story of her business life and choices. I wouldn’t read it again. I’m a huge fan of hers.

Don't bother

this is not an advice book this is a self glorification book of someone with narcissistic traits.

The entire book is a name-dropping social climbing tale of someone who has nothing to teach.

she says she wrote it on her phone and it shows.

A Boost of Spirit

Sometimes in life we need a little boost, a reminder of what is important and how to obtain your goals. This was the perfect book to light that fire of motivation and to realize that the possibilities are endless; it's never too late to create the world you had imagined for yourself.

Don’t waste your time or money.

This was probably the worst book that was ever recommended to me. It is unhinged.

Good business book

Excellent. This book started a bit slow but a few chapters in through the end, I loved it. Bethenny gives big picture advice (importance of family, balance, strategy, big picture thinking) and goes into details about how she formed some of her most successful and profitable deals. This book breaks down her multi million dollar empire into digestible, understandable deals and negotiations anyone can understand. Really enjoyed it and would recommend.
