I was put off by this woman's "gutter mouth" and I was surprised someone her age would be so crude. I guess this is what sells books these days but I'm not a fan of this woman or this book.

If I could give it a negative rating I would. I would never recommend this book to anybody. In it's attempt to be edgy and it's so-called "artful use of profanity of a Philly trucker" it's like wading through a swamp. From the book:
Let's be real before you read any further:
The premise of this book is fucked.
This is a self-help book. The self in question is you, and the doing the helping is me. I've got some nerve, huh? Without ever knowing a single thing about you or even meeting you, I'm going to give you tools and techniques to know yourself better, cope with whatever shit life throws at you, and get more out of being alive than you ever thought possible. That's the fucked premise we're going with here. And I gotta say ... it sound's super dumb. But that dumb process and fucked premise aren't unique to this book: They're the backbone ofthe entire self-help genre." It doesn't get any better.
