Review: Queen of Your Own Life by Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff

Queen of Your Own Life by Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff

Here's what the book says:
Discover the Seven Best Gifts You Can Give Yourself

Queen of Your Own Life is a philosophy, a decision and an invitation to happiness for women who have made the tough but rewarding journey to the midpoint in their lives. Kathy Kinney (best known as Mimi on The Drew Carey Show) and Cindy Ratzlaff (marketing genius behind the launch of The South Beach Diet) have been best friends for more than thirty years, and have helped each other navigate the ups and downs of their lives with humor and grace.

In this entertaining and inspiring book, they share the tried-and-true techniques they call "the seven best gifts a woman can give herself." They reveal how they learned to value themselves just the way they are -- women in full bloom, sensual, vibrant, wise and more beautiful than ever -- and they'll show you how you can, too.

With these seven gifts you'll discover how to:
•Claim your beauty and feel your power
•Clean your mental closet and find your queen voice
•Admire yourself for who you've become
•Build deep, fulfilling friendships with other women
•Establish firm boundaries that will strengthen all your relationships
•Learn the simple trick to finally being happy
•Place the crown firmly on your head
With humor, comfort and inspiration, Queen of Your Own Life offers easy step-by-step actions to blast away at the societal tall tale that young is beautiful and old is just old. If you've been feeling that the best part of your life may be behind you, then this book will prove to you just how untrue that is, and that the door to being happy is not only never closed, but just waiting for you to fling it open. Remember, you don't have to be twenty to have your whole life ahead of you. Now is the time to become Queen of Your Own Life!

Here's what I say:
The book is cleverly laid out. Each chapter covers a different aspect of life that might be interfering with your ability to be happy. One thing I really enjoyed was that there are parts that are specifically written by Kathy or Cindy and listed as such. These sections give a personal insight that relates to the topic. Another wonderful part of the book are the Crown Jewels. These are inspirations, humorous or enlightening quotes from a vast variety of people. I really enjoyed the ease of this book. Often "self-help" books can be preachy. This is more like a friend chatting with you. I really enjoyed it and think it is a great read for the woman who enjoy a bit of humor with their help.

Disclaimer: Although I did receive a copy of this book for review, I was in no other way compensated to post this review. These opinions are 100% mine.
