  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jacquie | 7/5/2013

    " I liked "Simple Abundance" better than this book. There were some goods things to think about or journal about in some of her exercises. But, I felt like the book may be geared more toward a woman who's recently been separated from a long term relationship or marriage. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy Prentice | 6/28/2012

    " I have had this book on my nightstand for over 3 years! It has been a good and insightful read but as it is like a discovery journal it takes time to read. I enjoyed the abundant quotes from famous authors. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shami | 1/2/2012
