with nothing of value that isn't common knowledge to anyone. I sent it back immediately. Complete waste of money. I agree with the above reviewers who point out that somehow this woman managed a lot of phoney reviews to pad this into a much higher rated product. As several of us "real" reviewers point out, most of these glowing testimonials are from people who haven't reviewed ANYTHING ELSE on Amazon.
For those like me who get sucked in, send the copy back (or on Kindle you have an option to return books for a few days under kindle management).
Seriously her 'Chapters" consist of single sentences to a simple paragraph, no real elaboration so if you look at the table of contents, that IS the book. I looked at the physical copy at my local bookstore after firing the kindle version back thinking surely it is a kindle problem. NOPE. The "real hard copy" version has blank pages to keep the book size up, and each "chapter is one or two sentences.
I've seen Allure magazine articles that were longer and more comprehensive written by dermatologists that were 100 times more information than this book. Come to think of it, I've seen magazine ads for cosmetics that had more information!!!!
If you want a good "derm in a book" look at:
Amy Wechsler's Mind Beauty ConnectionThe Mind-Beauty Connection: 9 Days to Less Stress, Gorgeous Skin, and a Whole New You. [Paperback],
Dr.Denese's Secrets for Ageless Skin by Dr. Adrienne DeneseDr. Denese's Secrets for Ageless Skin: Younger Skin in 8 Weeks.
Paula Begoun's Beauty BibleThe Original Beauty Bible: Skin Care Facts for Ageless Beauty is excellent, along with
Dr. Jessica We in Feed Your FaceFeed Your Face: Younger, Smoother Skin and a Beautiful Body in 28 Delicious Days.
If you want more try Dr Doris Day's Forget the FaceliftForget the Facelift: Turn Back the Clock with a Revolutionary Program for Ageless Skin which is listed as Sondra Forsythe as the author, but she is the co author.
I almost forgot Leslie Baumann's the Skin Type SolutionThe Skin Type Solution: A Revolutionary Guide to Your Best Skin Ever.
All great books, some repetition but with each one I've learnt important stuff. Well worth buying them.
All the list I mention are available on Kindle, and also in hard copy although some are out of print so you have to buy thru Amazon's second hand re sellers.
Another important point: All these reputable skin docs I mention above and Paula Begoun are in constant demand for opinions and articles for the magazines from Allure to Marie-Claire. Honestly this derm, I've never heard of before. And her advice such as it is, is skimpy at best. She strikes me as a money grubbing sort, unwilling to actually part with anything of value. This is probably just a way for her to say to her prospective patients "look, I'm published!"
