Book Reviews, Rewards, and Gratitude

Book reviews. Who doesn’t remember having to do book reviews when they were in school? I wasn’t fond of doing them myself, because the experience of giving one always filled me with anxiety.

Now, as an author, I find myself on the receiving end of reviews. If I thought giving reviews was anxiety-provoking, nothing could have prepared me for receiving them. You get a review and you want to read it. And you don’t want to read it. But you have to read it. Finally, you steel yourself for what might be coming, take a deep breath, and read the review.

I created an audio version of my book last month. I narrated it myself, and I was rewarded with my first review last week. I’m glad I had the nerve to read it, and I am so grateful for the review that I decided to share it with you.

My purpose in writing this book was to give people of all ages hope and encouragement that while getting older is inevitable, none of us have to get old. Also, that no matter what you are going through, it is possible to heal from anything. Our bodies and our spirit, when used together, have an incredible ability to heal. Here’s to your health!

“Practical guide for men or women of any age.”

Even though the title of this book suggests a demographic of an older readership of those 50 and older, I maintain that anyone, even teenagers, can benefit from the advice this book offers.

The author, who also did an amazing job with her narration, offers practical tips on awareness, lifestyle changes, nutrition (note: she is not about “dieting”), and her bottom line, which I love, is far more about feeling good than being a certain weight or size. I have always had this belief as well.

Cheryl tells her own story in a lengthy but fascinating forward in which she shares her lifelong adolescence of downright scrawniness to the point that people thought her Mother didn’t have enough money to feed her. But then hormones and life came along and she was forced to figure out how to come with weight gain, arthritis, aging and pain management. I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, but if this author has any more offerings, I will happily buy them because she is a trustworthy source of knowledge for me after this read.

This book, crammed with great techniques, tips and advice is perfect for anyone who can spare 4 or 5 hours to listen and come away with a life-changing start to feeling better, looking great and doing it anytime, at any age.

Highly recommended.
