The picture is cute and the colors are pretty but as it relates to the subject topic ...I just don't get it. The internal layout makes it easy to follow and zone in on areas that may be referenced once the initial reading is completed for someone who believes that they share the same reason for being overweight as Terkeurst.

This book will be a great resource for women who share the belief that they are overweight due to the same reasons that Terkeurst is overweight. For people who are not attempting to use food to supply their spiritual needs it will not prove as relevant.
