Thriving for Arianna Huffington..... Not So Much This Time


I had the opportunity to read Arianna Huffington's book, Thrive. I have to start off saying that I was so excited to read something written by the great Arianna Huffington. I have not been a fan of hers for too long. I originally found out what she was all about after watching an episode of Oprah's Super Soul Sunday. Ariana seemed very insightful and like someone that I could learn a lot from. 

I still believe I can learn a lot from her, but just not from this book. I was hoping to find a book that would help me be a better me by possibly giving me the structure needed to "thrive". I had a very difficult time reading this book and had to really push myself to get through to the end. It had some moments that peaked my interest, but it was not consistent enough to really love this book. 

The book walks us briefly through some of Arianna's life experiences to try and point out to the reader the importance of slowing down and enjoying life. It was just enough of a glimpse in her life to show the importance of slowing down and not to push oneself over the limit. The book gave just enough of an impact to remind myself to slow down, but was not memorable to enough for me.

I received my copy of Thrive in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
