      This had some really interesting ideas in it. I actually found myself using the three scenarios idea quite a lot after reading that chapter. I definitely suggest this book to anyone who is obsessed with fairy tales like I am.

      I liked the idea behind this book. I am someone that can connect to stories and take away things from stories that i try to apply to my own life to change it to something better or more positive. To the idea that an entire book was based on the idea to showcase known stories -or fairy tales- and give a new prospective on how to apply some of the messages that fairy tales to real life sounded interesting to me. And all in all this book do that to some extent at least. This book -for me personally [...]

      This is a well written book, offering a variety of thoughts on the power of fairy tales as teachers and guides for facing life's challenges and changes. The book includes a series of suggested exercises, intended to help readers apply some of the lessons of the stories. Some of these seemed to me to be too firmly focused on (e.g.) goal setting, rather than inviting creativity and free expression, but I'm sure they will resonate with some. I'm not sure that I agree with all of the author's views [...]

      I won this copy in a giveaway so I had no idea what to expect.This was a nice little read. It was interesting to see how some of the ways that you can approach life are similar to fairy tales that have been told throughout the ages.Some of the exercises were interesting in that they would teach you to almost visualize the way you wish your path in life to be.Basically it is similar to The Secret fairy tale style. Visualize it and you make it happenHappily Ever After.

      I loved the whimsy in this book. I've never out-grown fairy tales, so I thought this was a really ingenious way to look at your life. I suspect I'm in dream-land, with my head in the clouds (nose in a book even up there), most of the time. Creative and not overly trite or simplistic. Wroth an open mind, world leaders could learn a lot from this idea. Advanced Reader's Copy provided through Netgalley.
