Format: Audio Cassette
I bought Cheryl's tapes and listened to them. For anybody who buys this book, I would highly recommend this approach. Buy the book AND the tapes. Ms. Richardson is a real and sincere lady. You will feel this as you work the program. But it misses the point. Which is "Self-Change". This entire 7-step program is laid upon the first step or foundation and builds from there. This is the first step of "Extreme Self-Care". Cheryl almost calls it selfishness, but she qualifies it strongly. Her view is that you simply CAN'T help others unless you help yourself first. I called a counselor at my church, Self-Realization Fellowship (Yogananda). He stated that this was true. That when you give to yourself, you are giving to others. So I went ahead. All clear. I usually, well, almost always give too much of myself. About 10% to myself and 90% to others. A Tibetan lama, Tarthang Tulku, recommends giving 75% to yourself at first and then decreasing. The renowned psychologist, Albert Ellis, recommends 60/40. 60% to yourself always. Well, Cheryl, as my "personal coach", asked me in the book to read the entire program. That is, the whole book. I did so but it was like being in a plane crash. I increased my self-consideration to 20%. That felt s-o-o-o-o good. 30% felt even better. 50% was great and I highly recommend it. But this cutting off of relationships is simply not healthy. You see, I am very intolerant. So I cut off just about all my friends for being "toxic" and draining. This is a very bad area you can get into! I began to say "no" to too many people including my family. I even cut off my partner in the program! I felt stiff and isolated. I was at 80% now and going into a tailspin!Read more ›

Format: Paperback
Commonsense tips to a better life, especially if your dreams are blocked by procrastination, lack of motivation and clutter. Many of these tips can be found on the website of Coach University, which raises questions about originality of the ideas.
While Cheryl, as a coach, encourages everyone to hire a coach, she endorses CoachU and International Coach Federation.
Readers should know that there are other coaching organizations, and many people think others are higher-quality than those she recommends. And while many professional organizations enforce ethical codes and discipline erring members, when I last checked neither CoachU nor ICF did. In fact, both organizations refused to consider de-listing a coach following a complaint.
Readers should also realize that some people are skeptical about the notion of "coach training" altogether, as there is no scientific or scholarly rationale behind coaching and most schools admit anyone with a checkbook. As a coach myself, I think we're nothing more than independent consultants. You buy the person, not the training.

Format: Paperback
OK, here's the deal on this book. I'll finish it up since Ipaid for it, but let's just say I'm glad I got it on sale. There are SOME good ideas, but on the whole I thought it was pretty shallow. I should have known what I was in for when I saw all the lists and fill-in-the-blanks forms while flipping through this at the book store. But, I thought "hey, maybe I'll get some good insights, it's a best seller after all." This book actually says you should tell yourself on a regular basis: "I deeply, profoundly accept myself." Oh, barf me out! Stuff like that reminds me of those Stuart Smalley routines with Al Franken on Saturday Night Live. And it's like the Oprah magazine in terms of arts and crafts spiritual projects: you're gonna have to make a trip to Office Max or somewhere like that and pick up felt tip pens, index cards, at least one journal, a wipe-off board to hang in your house to write gratitude statements whenever you walk by. Then she suggests having friends over for a party to make little life "roadmaps" -- collages of pictures from magazines and catalogs that illustrate your life goals, all glued to foam-backed poster-board. I don't know why it has to be foam-backed. Then, write validating words in big letters (important!) on pieces of paper and keep them near you at all times. Good grief, I can't believe this is a best-seller. Oh! and talk about not understanding the middle-class budget, you need to have a monthly massage at least, hire a financial planner, hire a personal cook, get someone in to do the house-cleaning -- this is all a part of practicing "extreme self care." And here's a hot financial tip: it's a good idea to get in the habit of balancing your checkbook. (Several pages are devoted to this....) This is what the book is like, now you know!

Format: Paperback
This book is for anyone who works more than 8 hours a day. If you know someone that works more than 10 hours a day - you should tell him or her that they MUST read this book.
Cheryl is a life coach that shows people how to organize their lives so that they have a nice balance between all their needs. A person who is spending too much time at the office will likely burn out and not be very successful in the long run.
She also teaches that you don't have to do everything by yourself. It may sound so simple, but when you read this book you will see how Cheryl expounds on this idea and teaches you how to have a more holistic approach to life.
I highly recommend you reading this book.
