My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I began to read this book, I was unsure of what I would think of it.  Being quite honest, the first two chapters were some of the most boring I had ever read, and if I had not been reviewing the book, I may have given up.  But as the rest of the review will attest, I am glad I persevered!

This book is possibly one of the most unique books I have ever read. It is divided into various sections, and each section is loaded with positive words.  There is so much positive that you may find it overwhelming at first.  I think this book is better read in short spurts rather than all at once.  There is no way you can take in all the positive in one reading.  This should become a reference guide for you to turn to when you are down or feeling especially negative about things.  Find the chapter which discusses the area where you are sensing despair, and you are sure to find an affirmation or two or ten that will help you out of that mindset.

Coming from a Christian perspective, I appreciated all the things the author said about God and religion.  I did feel that at times the author emphasized humanism and the power of the human spirit and will a little more than I would have, but I can read a book like this with a grain of salt.  Everyone believes a little differently, and bottom line, no matter what you believe, there is still human responsibility involved in this life.  We are not spiritual robots.

I would recommend this book to anyone who needs to be reminded to have a positive outlook on life.  I was given a free review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.  All opinions are 100 percent mine.
