    This seems to have been written over a weekend and lacks the depth or insight I was hoping for. Alyssa had more to share in person on her book tour last week (in a denim jumper and clogs!!) than this ...

    So Here’s the Thing... I really wanted to like this book as I’ve been a long-term AM fan club member but I am unsure about what I’ve just read. The first book offered some great insights into wh...
