    Get ready to tell the TRUTH! You are worth it.

    I am a skeptic. I always look at new self-help books out of the corner of one eye--so when I say that Amy Ahlers gave me my own truth, you know it's coming from a totally sincere place. I didn't even KNOW I was lying to myself. This book is so simple, really--it just lays out the crap we say to ourselves, mostly without even thinking, and gives us a way to not only reframe it, but take action. This is not your run of the mill "you are doing everything wrong and I'm just the expert to fix you" book. NO WAY. This is about joining a movement of truth-telling superstars who will not take any more self-torture. Period. I learned something from Amy that I cannot un-learn: how to hear through my bull crap and tell the truth. This is going to be my go-to gift for friends and clients this year.

    a must read for all females

    I learned so much about living a fantastic life through the lessons in this book. My only regret is that it was not available when I was growing up. This book teaches you to recognize and disarm all the criticisms that we heap upon ourselves. This is a book you will read and then keep to refer to on a very regular basis. I bought one for my friends as well because I felt it was so powerful and true. Pam from Roseville

    Amy Ahlers has written a LOVE letter to you-- to every woman who has ever felt that crushing weight of self criticism... and who wants to stop! you deserve to feel cherished, satisfied and happy with every aspect of your life-- just as it is--and it's possible when you let go of those Big Fat Lies. Do yourself a big favor-- buy the book, read the book, do the exercises and find your joy!

    Amy Ahlers walks her talk...A must read to get yourself back on life's road.

    I had the opportunity to read this book in the early stages of editing. Ahler's book is written in an easy to follow, cut to the chase and take action style. The best part is that the author walks her talk giving her book credibility, inspiration to the reader and hope for the reader in overcoming the "The Big Fat Lies". I hope one day there will a companion book for the guys.
