Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives

Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives - Gretchen Rubin

A special thank you to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I liked this book much better than her other two books. My problem with Gretchen Rubin is that she constantly reminds us that she has a blog, and mentions her husband and children way too much. There are so many good nuggets in the book that she could flesh out, she doesn't need to consistently tell us about her privileged lifestyle, her blog, Jamie, Eleanor and Eliza.

At times I found her preachy. She certainly doesn't do herself any favours when she recounts conversations that she has with people as she sounds completely righteous.

Like I said there were a lot of good takeaways from the book - I wish she had of expanded upon those and done away with all of the personal fluff.
