My Review:
Traditionally, self-help books are a tricky genre for myself. They either come across too preachy, where the author has ALL of the answers to whatever problem you have or they dole out advice that is largely just common sense. Game On falls neatly somewhere in the middle of this. Cleveland mixes advice with short, amusing personal narratives. She also draws upon other text that has been written about the subject, taking care not to cast those aside as the wrong way to do things; Cleveland simply adds to it. I love that she stresses the importance of having friends and not planning a wedding at hello. I laughed aloud when I read that last part. Hilarious, yes but I’ve known so many friends to do just that!

One thing I especially appreciated was the narrative about Motorcycle Man. It isn’t one of her shining moments but serves as a learning experience for the author and her readers.

I give Game On 3.5/5 stars
