    1. I love this book! The concept is just so fun and a natural to those of us who like to learn/try new things and earn a little recognition along the way. The premise of "Dare to Dream, Learn Something New and Do Something Just for You" is a wonderful way to inspire women to get together and learn from each other. The story of how the book came to be is inspiring in itself. Initially begun by Lauren Grandcolas, her work was interrupted by 9/11. She died on United Flight 93. Her loving sisters, Vaug [...]

    2. the production of this book - which occurred after the tragic death of lauren grandcolas on september 11, 2001 - is an amazing story in itself. i love the topics, the suggestions, the merit badges, the fact that the mentors who contributed to each topic make themselves available to be contacted, on and on and on.a great addition to any woman's bookshelf. great graduation gift - birthday gift - anyday gift. a fun resource, and an inspiring set of suggestions for trying something new.

    3. This book is great fun for former Girl Scouts, or any women who like learning new skills and meeting new challenges. And it's fun to see how many skills you're already acquired, and to give yourself a pat on the back, or better yet, a badge!

    4. While I think this is totally fun and cute, it's not like I'm going to be working on them any time soon! It was fun to flip through, but that's about it.

    5. My Mom gave me this for Christams. I found it really inspiring. Be sure to take from it what you need. If you don't want to skydive or go to Jamacia, don't. I made croissants and felt quite proud of myself!

    6. I loved this book. From the touching posthumous dedication, to the zaniest chapter. If I ever feel down- I grab this book and dream big. I haven't actually gone through with any of the tasks described- but that is just the procrastinator in me.

    7. This is a long-term read intended to make you do things and think outside the box. I am really enjoying reading the individual sections and challenging myself to accomplish the goals. I have 2 complete to date!

    8. I really loved the spirit of this book, and the step-by-step way the author opens up doing those things you've always wanted to do, but have never done. I read most of the text; now I need to go back through and pick what I want to do first!

    9. I love this book. Wow! It is set up like a giant scout's book for women. All kinds of subject, mentors. Girls of all ages should have this. I fell in love with it and then read the intro that the author parished on 9/11. So sad.

    10. Some of these are silly, but it is still fun and motivating to read. This was written by a passenger who was killed on Flight (?) in Pennsylvania during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Her sister proceeded to have it published following her death.

    11. I am still reading this book. It is quite interesting and has given me lots to think about. Because of the nature of this book, it might be on my currently reading shelf for quite some time.

    12. I looked for this book for I watched an interview with a sister of the author on Veria TV. The two sisters saw this book through publishing after the death of the author on United Flight 93 on September 11, 2001. I liked the idea of using this book as a catalog of 59 merit badges as a starting point to accomplish something new with a mentor and enough small steps in order to feel as if you had a good introduction to a new activity. Even in those areas in which I already earned a merit badge, thi [...]

    13. Wow! I feel really, really good about myself after reading this. I’ve done all the merit badge tasks except for stand-up comedy, firewalking, gardening, beading, starting a rock band, aviation, film making, wine appreciation, negotiating, skydiving, participating in a triatholon, scuba diving, billiards, investing, estate planning, car care, computer care, home maintenance, and genealogy. Two-thirds ain’t bad! I think what this book really does well is help you define your goals, figure out [...]

    14. I found this book in the used bookstore I wrote about before. It's such a treasure. Every chapter is a about a skill or an opportunity to experience something you haven't before. There are steps to get it done and earn a badge (they've got sticker badge for every one if them at the end of the book).And they also feature someone. Who's an expert in that field and tells you their point of you. It can take something that looks so ordinary, like knitting for example. And turns it into something so i [...]

    15. Has some nice resource material. Thumbed through the entire book and read areas specific to what I am interested. This is one of those reference books I plan to keep on my shelf.I can see this as a tool to be used in a women's groups. Each person could pick a chapter of interest and follow the steps in the book. Want to learn how to dance? Here's the steps you would take. Want to learn how to quilt? Start here. Need more reference material, go here. If you love what you've accomplished you can g [...]

    16. Not a book you just sit down and read. It's mildly useful when you aren't quite sure how to go about something, but mostly, I guess it's for folks who have trouble thinking up what crazy thing they want to do next. Now I've surfed (not the way the book said) and done some traveling (though I didn't read that section well before I planned and executed my trip) and there isn't a section on "When you decide you want to build a shed and aren't quite sure how to do it so you check out some books and [...]

    17. Above and beyond the New Year’s Resolution! Want to lose weight? Work on the fitness badge. Promised to learn something about art? There’s a badge for that! Anything you’ve told yourself you’d like to try one of these days is probably in here, along with “requirements” (just like in the Girl Scout Handbook), advice from experts, and, most valuable of all, a list of resources to help you on your way. If you want to try something, and don’t know how to get started, this book might be [...]

    18. I saw a review on this somewhere and really thought it was going to be a checklist type thing of "things to do before you die" kinda thing. I went to the bookstore and it was very disappointing. It was more a "how to" dream, get motivated, get organized, research things to do, etc. kinda thing. I really thought it was going to be a "earn a badge" type thing of life skills. It had the typical write a book, jump out of a plane stuff that is the cliche and lifetime achievements thing that not every [...]

    19. I return to this book again and again for ideas on what to do with my friends when we get together or for myself when I need a pick-me-up in the middle of the winter! This book is an incredible resource of information and ideas, articles and websites to complete 60 "merit badges" like negotiating, personal style, and strengthening your relationships. There are actual merit badges included with the book, and you will treasure each and every one of them. A motivating message for any woman looking [...]

    20. I absolutely love this book! I had forgotten I had it when I moved so I "found" it in a box! It just let's you really say okay I am going to enjoy my life on purpose & try some new things without force! It is a must have & I will definitely be sharing it for generations!I may not ever be actually finished with this book because of all the actual activities but I am clearing it from my list as I have read all of the "reading" section & completed some of the adventures.

    21. I thought this was a nice idea, but it doesn't tell you how to do anything, just gives you ideas on things to learn/do. I thought it might include a few diagrams and a pattern for knitting, for example, but it just tells you to find someone to teach you. I didn't find this book to be beneficial at all. I guess if you're bored and need ideas on something to do, this might be of use to you.

    22. A good overview of every type of activity one would have interest in:computers, mediation, estate planning, beading making just to name a few. But I can't imagine why anyone would really need this. I guess my interests are already very board and I've covered the basics in most of these catergories. Waste of my time but could be ok for tweens who have not been exposed to so many things yet.

    23. Sweet ideas, good interviews, positive outlooks. There are also helpful resources in book, web and other types of media in each section. I was inspired to learn to fly!Other sections are more basic and the youthful language is sometimes bothersome to follow. I'd give it to a preteen, teenager or a parent.

    24. too motivational, group activity oriented for my tastes conceptually i will thumb thru this book over and over. pondering reworking the ideas for 'I'm bored' activity ideas to do with the Goos.i am a sucker for a merit badge.

    25. I love this bookl us "girls" have so many accomplishments in our day to day livesis book gives us the chance to pat ourselves on the back in celebration of a little "girl power" as well as giving some ideas for future projects.

    26. It's a great idea and I commend the late author and her family for publishing this book, but it's getting a little outdated as technology evolves, so it might be worth updating soon so it's still relevant.

    27. It has certainly made my to-do list longer. It has some nice inspiring ideas in it and points you in the direction for additional resources (ex. negotiate: lists books websites workshops and magazines).

    28. Great book! As a lifelong Scout, I was excited to see something based off of Scouting. The project ideas and activities cover a broad range of topics that would appeal to many different people. It's a fun, inspiring read, and I look forward to embarking on more of the activities!
