Book Review: Be You & Live Civil by Karen Civil

I’ve been wanting this book since I first saw it. Plus I’ve been a fan of Karen Civil and the things she’s done for a long time. When I heard that she was writing a book about living your purpose I knew I had to read it. First impression of the book was okay, this is thin (only 62 pages), then I open the book and see that it’s double spaced (similar to what a high school essay would look like if you put it in book format — this is no shade to Karen). I would say I was sort of disappointed because I just knew she had so much to say and so much advice to give.

As I read the book it made me think. I not just scratch the surface thinking but in-depth thinking, but it didn’t give me anything that I already didn’t know. She shared some stories about friends that has passed away and the motivation they give her. It only took me 4 hours to read the book.  I can honestly say that this book did not live up to the expectations that I had for it. I expect so much more positive things and tools to take and apply to my life, but that didn’t happen. I give her an A for efforts but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone unless they do not know her back story. But I look forward more of her work and things that she has to share with us.
