Overall I would say I liked this book because I liked their positive message upbeat attitude it was a uick read Oh because I like Pittsburgh However it definitely felt like they got a strike while the iron is hot book deal because of the HGTV series then had to figure out what to write about rather than having something to say writing a book then getting it published So it has a disjointed feel to it as it jumps back forth between the story of their lives how they got to where they are the advice on being creative suggestions for personal development part Not awful but could have been better
