Reviews - What do customers think about Seduced By Success?

I really liked the book  May 14, 2008
I have read all of Ann's books and they were a great inspiration to me as well as my growth as a Christian. She encouraged me and my excitement for Jesus. I respect her honesty and openness in sharing that she herself wasn't this "perfect Christian" that so many others thought she was. Some reviews have commented that they now think she was a fake and they are angry with her for appearing to be someone she wasn't. How many of us appear to be what we aren't? Happy when we really aren't? Acting like we like someone when really we despise them? (sometimes rightfully so). I feel a sense of relief that she really was like us. I recommend this book highly. She shares her struggles being an addict and it was especially moving when she finally "saw the light" into why she has been basically addicted her whole life. You won't be able to put the book down - I read it completely the day I got it!
Raw, honest, authentic  Apr 16, 2008
Possibly one of the most raw, honest and authentic books I've ever read. Ann Anderson is a woman of great courage to share her whole story. It was an inspiring read.
Powerful, raw honest story of facing your demons with a real kind of Jesus in the midst.  Nov 18, 2007
As a college student with a growing eating disorder I was both inspired and intimidated by Ann Kiemel. I too wanted to sing songs to taxi drivers, and was dismayed at my terror to even attempt it. All these years later having dealt with my own demons, I found her story behind the stories of changing her world, far more powerful, and moving than the originals. How refreshing to read of a Christian who chooses to work through her marriage issues instead of getting a divorce. And starts by focusing on her own issues. I just wish she had spent more time sharing about the healing process. With her prose style of writing we get more condensed highlights. And those babysteps to healing that lead to the highlights are important to hear. Very much recommend this book.
This book is the vindication for everything I experienced  Apr 25, 2006
This book is the vindication for everything I experienced as a young Christian.

I can remember my brothers and sisters in Christ pointing out my many flaws and exhorting me to be more like adorable Ann Kiemel. I was sunk from the start. There was no way I could be like her. (Not even she was like her.)

Even then, something about her struck me as false. The falseness seemed deeper than merely being a drama queen. But my Christian friends adored her, and chalked my distrust up to my lackluster walk with Jesus. I did not start to trust my own instincts about her until decades later, when I read that as a teen she'd tried to burn her freckles off -- classic self-mutilation and a sign of grave trouble.

Then this book came out, and I heard her weeping and quavering on Dobson that her "perfect" marriage had been a sham, that the whole thing had been a sham. I find a measure of peace in that it endorsed my early decision to leave the whole evangelical Christian scene behind.

I am glad she came clean, although I doubt she had any other alternative, since her "perfect" husband had left her destitute and there was little else to do but try to revive her moribund career, and this would have been the only way to regain the attention she still seems to crave.

Whatever the motives: Thank you, Ann, at least for eventually setting people free from the horrific burden you laid on us.
she was out to change the world and she has, with truth  Feb 21, 2006
I am moved by Ann's story, which is a huge step in Christian literature, for those of us tired of legalism and hungry for the real Jesus who said that a physician comes not for the well, but the sick...

Early on, Ann wrote her "I'm Out to Change the World", but the unedited version of her story (though she didn't know she would write it at the time) --"Seduced by Success" --really does change the world.

Truth ALWAYS changes the world.

Her selfless writing will hopefully save others from trying to be a "human doing" instead of a "human being". Thank you, Ann...for being strong in the grace of the Lord.
