I haven't read this book, but the review, by Mrs. Giggles, certainly makes you think:

I didn't have any interest in the book because I knew it would read like how Mrs Giggles described. I'm so over the defense of romance pieces that flutter through the online media because it's superficial. In Rodale's case, she's been all over the media defending the genre solely as a means to plug her book and boost her own profile. She's so not adding any real, meaty, or new discourse to the topic.
