Bethenny is a boss.. specially if your in business she inspires you. You want to impress people talk about your success. You want to IMPACT people talk about your failures
I love how real and down to earth she is. I felt the book was really in her voice and I loved that she narrated because there are parts that only Bethenny could do! I will highly recommend this book, it gave me great perspective
I really wanted to like this book, I really did. First of all, she should not have read it. She is monotone, rushed and well, awful. Putting that aside, there were no great revelations here. Be nice, let go of anger and be focused. And yeah I get it, she loves her kid and husband and dog. She tells us she is a lovable pain in the ass, and that she has mommy/daddy issues. We get it. She tells us all over and over and over all the things she did, sell cookies, be an actress, party planner, reality star yada yada yada. Clearly it is a resume designed to let everyone know one thing, she wants to be a talk show host. In the end, what she said in a gazzillion pages could have been said in one short paragraph. She is human, she is ambitious, she is working on it.
Susanne Sommers & Bethany Frankel were cut from the same vocal cord. --forceful, breath-lacking, loud, mono-pitched speakers that they wear you out, before you even hear the message.
BUT, after I heard the message.... wait? there was a message in Bethany's book? (susanne's had a message)
This was lots of details, and thoughts, and details, and more details... vice spitting out the important part with a little quip about how she came upon a "rule"... THAT would have been WAY better.
Honestly, when she took a moment to reflect personally in the middle/end of the book, she took breaths and had inflection in her voice. There was emotion, and phrasing... and, yet, still no message, but it was such a relief. I was pained that the first style of reading returned, like it was in all CAPS with no punctuation, emotion, message(other than that which you can read on the cover of every women's magazine since they started making paper magazines), inflection, or breaths... Ugh.
