    I read this in one sitting last night. There are certain paragraphs that are nearly identical for each celebrity, meaning that it is probably better to read two or three of the four page sections a day (which is also what they recommend at the end of the book)

    I particularly like the essay by John Cena and the picture of him playing tea party with a young girl. It's nice to read positive celebrity stores.
