Review of "It Don't Take No Mental Heavyweight to Figure It Out"

"I read a lot of "success" books, because I like to keep myself motivated and on track.  What I like about this one is how honest the author is about her own life.  The book is written in a folksy and personal way, and it is almost like reading a diary.  There were times during the ready for me that felt like I was violating her privacy.  She really puts herself out there, and I think that is one of the things that makes a good teacher.  She approaches the subject of being a success in life by talking about her specific dreams, her insecurities, her victories, and even her failures.  Her religious and spiritual beliefs come out a lot in the writing.  I don't hold her specific religious beliefs, but I do see the importance of it.  She doesn't claim to have arrived, and she doesn't lecture about what the reader should be doing with their lives.  She talks about what she has done, is doing, and needs to do.  I was able to relate to that.  There were times when I felt she was describing me and my life.  I think the information here is valuable.  I didn't see a lot of new ideas on the subject of successful living, but I loved the way the old ideas were presented in a new way."

"This was an awesome read!  Quick and to the point, things we all need to be reminded of!  Thank you!

"I enjoyed the book.  I laughed, snickered, and thought, "hmmmmm.  She might be onto something."  As I read the book, I felt as if the author and I were having a conversation over a cup of coffee.  Thanks for writing and I hope you fulfill your goals."

"There are 100's and 1000's of books to "teach you about success", but this book just reminds you of good 'ole common sense!!  It is very detailed, and I felt like I was sitting down with the author, at the kitchen table, talking about LIFE.  It is easy to read, easy to understand, and I walked away with a smile on my face."
