The book’s first third presents Weller’s thinking about the untapped power of the mind, which she likens to a garden readers must tend well to ensure robust health. The balance of the text offers Weller’s “Solutions for Healthy Living.” She illustrates her advice and arguments with spirited examples from her own life, which by her accounting has been healthful and happy. Wittily, she declares herself a bit of a bull, because she’s “Love-able, Cap-able, Answer-able, Account-able” and more. Weller supplements her suggestions with exercises crafted to guide readers toward a similar bullishness.
In a preface, Weller notes that she hopes readers treat Your Health Is Your Greatest Wealth as a reference work, which is appropriate for a book constructed as something of a miscellany. She imbues familiar advice about positive thinking with fresh energy, and writes with charm and conviction. Readers who don’t subscribe to the Law of Attraction—the belief that positive thoughts can bring about success and health, while negative thoughts will cause failure and strife—will be alienated by Weller’s promises that a positive mindset will prevent and cure illnesses and diseases. But readers who agree with that premise will find much to interest them here.
Takeaway: This guide to healthy living will appeal to readers who believe in the Law of Attraction.
