Summary from Goodreads: Patricia V. Davis may be the first to tell you she's an expert in failed relationships. But ask any of the readers who helped a post on her advice blog go viral, and they'll say that whether you're wide-eyed twenty-something dreamer, the world's grooviest grandma, or something in between, there's no one better able to help you on your way to becoming a True Diva!
Reading self help books is not my preferred reading material. Give me fiction, entertain me! I must admit that this is an entertaining book, plus it helps give me ideas to get over some of my hang ups and things holding me back from being a better person
Patricia writes like she is sitting down and chatting with you. She's the friend who sits down with you and tells you the way things really are. She gives great advice. I even learned how to highlight text on my kindle. I've had it for a year and a half and had never seen the need to learn. I highlighted like crazy. There are so many thoughts and ideas that I need to re-read and implement into my life.
I want to share three of them with you. Just because I think that they are right on target and give you an idea of what you will find in this book.
Believe that there is a worth to you alone, as an individual - not only in relation to others - and that there is value to your beliefs, wishes and dreams.
Just think about that for a minute. How much more would you get accomplished, how much better would you feel as you achieved it, if you weren't constantly feeling stressed and inferior because of how you perceived your looks?
You can't change the people you love: you can only change your reaction to them.
I would feel comfortable recommending this book to my mother, friend, grandmother, etc. I probably would hold back on my 13 year old daughter for a few years. But I would say mother's of teens should read it to help their daughters. I gave it four stars.
