Believe it! Act it! Feel it! So say Breslin, a life coach and former anorexic, and Murphy, a counselor who was severely depressed while growing up, to women in their 20s who want to change their lives. Each chapter deals in this simplistic manner with a particular area of life: career, relationships, health and finances. In relentlessly chipper language, readers are exhorted to first get to know themselves through a plethora of lists and exercises. The next step is to imagine a better future, set goals and take appropriate action. For example, after understanding one's ingrained feelings toward money, it's necessary to shed self-defeating attitudes (e.g., that you can't manage your budget) and initiate a proactive financial plan that provides for spending and saving. This not very substantive text contains no new self-help ideas or techniques. (July)
