I am interested in this book also because I have heard that she has made comments on the Weave vs Natural debate. I wear weaves as a personal choice and it infuriates me when other women and men make comments about how being natural is better. Anyway, to go into that will take time and I have already posted two posts today. This is my third. 🙂 I will continue when I publish my review of the book.
