Since this is the second time I am reading this book, I must first give my
impressions from the first time.

I must admit that the first time I read the book, I found it to be enlightening and inspiring. Of course, that was back in 2000. I was 20, and the biggest (new) problem I had was a “broken heart,” if it can be called that. However, it gave me a second wind, which allowed me to return
to Chicago and do well, while hold 3 part-time jobs. Thus, the 20-year-old Christina would say it a “5-Star.”

The current Christina, about to hit 25, will let you know what she thinks of it once she’s done. But I anticipate the views will be rather disappointing in comparison, for everyone.



I have decided to stop rereading this book. If, in the future, I decide to embark on that endeavour again, I will make a note somewhere on this page.
