could be better

good material but way too brief and very repetitive. she could have elaborated more on important points instead of repeating the same thing multiple times.

Not for audio listening

Good book, but not a good listen type book. This book needs to be absorbed only in print.

She plants seeds that blossom into fruitful thoughts

I enjoyed Brianna’s fresh take on many areas in life; excellent for late night work sessions or road trips. Deep thinking and common sense beautifully crafted into a book.

A different perspective

Absolutely love this book. I have the audiobook, kindle, and hard copy. This has changed me and given me a different perspective. This book has helped me evaluate and really think and get to root cause of why I think the way I do. This book is worth every word. I was legit sad when it ended, I love her wisdom and the insight she provides.

Changed thinking

The book really is full if truths that everyone doesn’t realize. It has spoken the things my heart feels and has elaborated what my mind couldn’t. I would always love this book and would recommend it to the people I love.

A bunch of lists???

This book started out really good and I did enjoy large chunks of it. It definitely has great insights and it gets you thinking and analyzing yourself and your life. What I didn’t like about it was that so many chapters were just lists. Not even with any commentary or analysis, just lists of things to think about. That part got old because it doesn’t follow a thought and get deep. After a while it just feels like endless lists of reasons/questions/thought-provoking statements.

principles should be taught in schools

very good book. it should be used as an aid in schools, to help with young adult development. I have already shared book with others that are trying to figure themselve and the world out.

Excellent book. Too much cussing

This was an excellent book. I enjoyed the format and it has a lot of great subjects to think about. I wish I could recommend this book to my family but I can’t because she added SO MUCH unnecessary and out of place four letter words and G.D. Cussing. It was so off pudding and unnecessary. I don’t understand why she decided to do that.
