The book has a very informal approach. It is easy to connect with the writer and follow the steps. My sister absolutely loved the book and has definately started her journey on a healthier lifestyle. She says the book was easy to follow, fun and grasping till the end. Personally I feel that even the boys can learn a lot from this book, only about 5% of the book is women specific.
