A favor to ask...

Dear readers, I have a favor to ask.

My husband happened to be on the Barnes & Noble website recently, and looked up The Simplicity Primer. What he found was a single review... and it was a one-star! Someone clearly didn't like the book, but gave no explanation as to why. Just that durn one star.

So, for those who read the book and (cough) liked it, would you be so kind as to add some positive reviews? I would much appreciate it!


  1. I haven't read the book, but I am a cynic at heart, and it seems like the many dislike those that live and take care of their own. They prefer to sabotage instead of really living in tolerance that is professed. Instead we are to be tolerant but our simple lives are not accepted.

    I hope I am wrong, but I have been reading your blog for a bit and really being part of each post, I highly doubt that the book was only a one star-thus, I confirm my cynicism and see it as a sabotage star.


  2. Patrice - i will go and write a review right now. my hubby and i love your book!

    your friend,

  3. Apparently a troll. Do we have to order through B&N to place a review on their site?

  4. Well, I have read the book and I don't care WHO a person is - there is no way that they can read your book and not come away with something beneficial. There are tons of great ideas in there. I wrote a review for ya, Patrice.

  5. Steve - I don't think so. But you do have to have a B&N account, which I apparently already have and it's simple to sign up. Didn't buy anything, but left review.

  6. I just followed your link to B&N and there were nothing but 5 star reviews and ratings. Wherever your one star review was it appears to be no longer. :o)

  7. Only one thing to say Patrice, musta been city folk. They think food grows in plastic wrap...

  8. Done! And I am happy to do it because it was long overdue. Here is what I said:

    This book is a gem! What a great gift idea for just about everyone I know. I am simply amazed when I talk to my co-workers and hear about each and everyone of them complicating their lives, just like they see on TV and in the movies. No, normal married people aren't supposed to have affairs at the drop of a hat. No, normal people aren't supposed to run up their credit cards REPEATEDLY only to be bailed out again and again. No, normal people don't wait around not working until someone else gives them money to live on. You get the idea. Each of these people would be insulted by having their behavior pointed out to them but their behavior itself doesn't seem to be a problem to them. If it feels good, I need it and I am doing it. Off my soapbox for now.... Truly, all of us need to get a different perspective on what our lives consist of, and we need to take a second look at everything we are doing. This book will gently bring you there, and you will find yourself saving money and relationships along the way. What could be better?

    God Bless,

  9. I went right over to their site to leave a review and was happy to see 8 of them, and you having a 5 star rating! I love my copy, and read excerpts over and over ;-)
