Dr. Bassett begins the book with a bang – at least she did to start with! At the beginning of the book, she boldly declares, “If You Are Not Getting Serious With Your Love Life…by now, I’ve had a little fun!” Her voice is infectiously infectious as she encourages you to keep reading. After all, “You’ll never read a book like this twice”.
The ten chapters include: The Power Of One (instant happiness), Connected To The Force (connectedness and staying connected), Being Yourself Again (reclaimed identity), The Perfect Storm (financially and emotionally), Getting Out Of The Rut (reclaimed self-esteem), Taking Action (taking real actions), Making A Difference (being a difference in the world), and Getting Started (getting you started). There is also a short chapter on creating clutter. This chapter gives specific advice on what to do when clutter accumulates in the home and office, as well as a few humorous and motivational stories about getting started. However, the bulk of the book is devoted to one main theme, which is… staying positive!
Yes, the author makes sure you know that staying positive will get you through each bump in the road. The book quotes many people including the coauthors, Tiger Woods and Ben Franklin, as well as motivational speakers such as Larry David and Mary King. Not only do these famous individuals share their stories, but they are portrayed in a comical manner. The humor is not for everyone – but it is definitely worth the few laughs. Just break your nose and enjoy this fun, but lighthearted, book!
