I think writer, Brooke Lewis, of this book Coaching from a Professed Hot Mess is one of those over confident Americans I am often warned about. All the exclamation marks used in the introduction to this book made my head spin and these didn’t cease throughout the book, which made Coaching from a Professed Hot Mess feel like a pep talk I had been bullied into by an employer.
It is not necessarily a bad thing, the blistering confidence does work with assuring the reader and lured me into a sense of security. Brooke Lewis does indeed have the experience. She has a tremendous and full CV. I liked reading something from a woman who has had a lack of confidence and dating disasters, but survived to tell the tale.
The dating section of this book is extensive, making this feel more of a dating guide. This was especially as most of the sections mentioned dating at some point. I did like the first section, Holiday Tips, more than the others.
The LGBT section felt forced and not needed. The photographs of Brooke Lewis also didn’t feel needed and seemed indulgent.
I think Coaching from a Professed Hot Mess will appeal to many women of different ages.
