    Cute, but....

    I was surprised to see how small the physical size of this book was when I received it, and even more surprised to find half of the bulk of it was photos! Barely scratched the surface of the ongoing epidemic of women feeling they have to be perfect. I finished the book wondering why exactly the author put such tiny bits of insight into a publication with such a powerful title, leaving the reader very disappointed and still hungry.

    A Little Bit of Nothing

    I found this book to say absolutely NOTHING. I saw the author interviewed and it sounded like a book about perfection. This book jumps from one confusing thing to other unrelated issues. Some of the words are not commonly used words and one has to use a dictionary to understand what the author is trying to say. I found almost nothing about perfection in this book. I was very disappointed in the content . I do believe I could write a better book about perfection and dealing with it.
