My Review:

I have previously had the pleasure of reading several of Leman's books, and was very excited to review this book, through my partnership with Graf-Martin Communications. 

Have A New You By Friday is written a very easy to read, and understand, manner, and is very well organized. The book is divided up in sections according to the days of the week and each chapter is full of wonderful ideas to help you become a more confidence person. 

Although I have heard much of what Leman wrote before in his other works and from other authors, it was great to be reminded that by changing my attitude and outlook on the tough times in my life, I can have a great life! My favorite section was the chapter entitled, Thursday, which explained that when we know our love language and that of our spouse or partner, much good will result. Great respect, communication and more will abound if we just learn more about what makes each of us tick!

Although I don't think we can necessarily work through all our issues in just five days, this book is a wonderful start to a new you. Leman also includes additional resources for one to access, if need be. 

If you are looking for an encouraging book on your journey to a new you, that is filled with humor and a quick read, then this is the book for you.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
