A Pity Trees Died for This Book, November 5, 2011
I don’t blame the authors for this waste of perfectly good paper. The publisher admits he pitched the idea to Louise and Cheryl, which in his mind must of gone something like this: “Let’s see if we can squeeze more money out of you two cash cows by having you rehash your old stuff in a collaboration.” The power-of-positive-thinking concepts are fine but could be expressed in two pages, and you’ve probably read them all before. Most of the book is Cheryl’s bland “The Making of this Book” narrative, and without it, there wouldn’t be enough pages for a book at all. Louise Hay wrote one of the best self-help books ever, “You Can Heal Your Life.” Buy that instead.
