    Surprisingly, a very big disappointment.

    This book disappointed me. First off, it's like he's trying to do a knock-off version of "The Secret", then he randomly starts talking about colon cleansing, then makeup/style? Please. Every technique described in the book is basically common sense; even a 12 year old would know how to do them. I also get the vibe that Rupaul wrote this in about an hour because he didn't really care about giving a vision, just making the money, and because of a deadline. Now, don't get me wrong; I love Ru; always have...but this book just isn't worth the 20$ I paid for it. You're better off buying a Cosmopolitan. (The magazine, even though a couple of the drinks would probably make you enjoy the book a whole lot more.) I returned the book the day after I purchased it.
