The idea behind the book isn't bad. Leaving post-it notes to brighten someone's day is nice. But the book feels like it should be for children. It's not good. It's an easy read and could be done in a day no problem, but I got bored after the first couple chapters.
It's a nice idea, but it's really not worth any money. Maybe borrow it from the library.

Good intentions, yes. Helpful, no. Aug. 31 2012
By Nicole Ashley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When I first learned of the OB movement, I thought it was fabulous idea. The world could use more random acts of kindness, right? I wrote a few notes and while the idea of leaving notes for others was uplifting, it did nothing for my own eating disorder or body image. I could easily look at another woman and see she was beautiful, but looking at myself, I can't say the same. I think Caitlin means well with her intentions, but it's almost a joke hearing her say we should all stop fat-talking when she's never really been fat to begin with herself. I recognize her credibility shouldn't have to do with her size, but Caitlin specifically doesn't seem to really believe what she says. Since giving birth, Caitlin has publicly voiced her frustrations about not losing weight as quickly as she had hoped. Knowing firsthand how hard it was to see my body change throughout pregnancy and then after birth, I know her thoughts are normal. However, not once has Caitlin said of her new body that it was "beautiful". This just leads me to believe this whole movement was just a fluke and Caitlin only goes along with it because it brings in money. Caitlin could have wrote a fantastic memoir-type book about her own story of overcoming fat-talk, but to group this book with self-help books is misleading. Someone who truly needs help would likely not benefit from this book, or any post-it for that matter.

I'll give you my copy Dec 29 2012
By Jay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Bought this book because I enjoyed the author's blog, but it was a major disappointment. The author has ZERO credentials and is simply writing her opinion on big topics. She asked others to submit their work and she compiled it as "research"- there's nothing original or any real data.

I will probably donate my copy to Goodwill as it's currently collecting dust.

So refreshing! July 1 2014
By beachcatt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really enjoy this book and use it as a pick-me-up when life sucks! I have even been motivated to leave a few notes myself. The fact is, you never know when someone might need your little pep talk-on-a-sticky and what's wrong with spreading some cheer once in a while?

Great Read! Feb. 22 2014
By annette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading the book.
It did seem to be more of a bunch of testimonials than what I expected, though.
Still I will be letting my 11 yr read this, as I think this would be good for her to read.

Operation Beautiful, such a good book! Jan. 18 2012
By Kirstin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I mainly bought this book because I loved that it would contain many post-it-notes and positive mantras in order to help us all become happier within ourselves. However I didn't realise how it had so much more than quotes, post-its and sayings. It really is such an amazing book and whether you are happy or sad about yourself anyone can benefit from this book. So inspiring!
