This is a self-help book in many ways--no question about that. But Malti has definitely given the genre a fresh perspective, at least with respect to linguistic style. If you've been a regular reader of her articles, you already know of this life-coach's uncanny ability to simplify complex theories and illustrate their application in real life. This book is much the same in all its unprocessed, what-you-see-is-what-you-get language.

The book has a good flow, which is remarkable considering the plethora of topics that Malti speaks about in here. The topics she covers have been spoken about before--in literary works such as 2006's best-seller The Secret--but she tackles it in a manner I thought was especially riveting due to a strong sense of personality that comes through. As she gently forces us to confront a more honest version of ourselves through riveting lessons about positivity, replacing negativity, letting go, coincidences and much more.

A lot of her prose is speckled with DIY lessons, which adds to the book's worth, in my opinion. Malti's always vocal about her NLP training and is generous in sharing some great trade secrets through these tests and exercises that she's learned and applied with great to success in her own life.

Of all the tests available in the book, I especially enjoyed the 'jigsaw puzzle visualization exercise' and 'thinking pink declaration exercise'--but this is definitely going to differ from person to person. Also, I loved that she didn't hesitate to share deeply personal experiences, all of which further simplify the message of the book while engaging the reader.
