I haven't bought it yet but I have been thinking about it. Maybe you're reviews will make me want to buy it! :)

I actually just started reading it a couple days ago (even though I pre-ordered months ago). I'll let you know when I finish.

I pre-ordered it, but haven't had the chance to read more than the first chapter yet! Life has been crazy... thank goodness I've had time to workout! I'll let you know when I read it. (Either way, I got a free waterbottle for ordering it... so it works out ;)

I pre-ordered the book wayyyy back in October and received it a few weeks ago. I devoured the book as quickly as possible, but honestly, was quite disappointed. The book is basically the site in a book form. Sure, there were some stories and personal anecdotes, but the entire premise of the book was what the site already teaches. There was nothing new or exciting or break-through. I guess I was expecting way too much from it and was sorely disappointed.

Chris kept talking about all these cornerstones and things of SparkPeople which I'd never heard of or seen used on here, so that confused me, and there was nothing innovative about the book. In addition, I found tons of typos in the book. It was really a disappointment in general, especially since everything in the book can be found online. The Spark Bonus site on here has all the same tools that the book does so I guess I know have a hard-copy of what I have online. I'll probably share it with others though so no one else spends the $12 that I did.

I'll get off my honest soapbox now. (:

Can't wait to hear what others have to say!
