A book by Scott Stevenson< read all 6 reviews
Looks Easy Enough is a very entertaining memoir. The message of this book is to try to learn from every experience in my life, whether that experience is either positive or negative. Scott describes the hard work involved in building his dream house with his wife Susan and members of his family. I could not help but admire their hard work and dedication to this project as I read this book. It is fun visualizing what this house looks like in my mind. Stevenson devotes an entire chapter on each individual step. I really like the chapter about laying bricks to make the wall of his house.
I have never been to the Cuyamaca mountains in San Diego, but Scott makes living in the woods sound like the best place to live. He is an animal lover. He spends a whole chapter about his fascination about an owl.
Scott Stevenson is the kind of writer that makes me care about the people in his family. His wife Susan is a breast cancer survivor. Her courageous fight to beat breast cancer is one of the appealing themes about the book. I love reading about the alternative treatments and therapies she goes through to beat the disease. Scott Stevenson is a caring brother who gives his time and money to help his sister Beth through a long and painful divorce.
Looks Easy Enough is a memoir that will help anyone going through some kind of loss or adversity. I don't want to give away too much about what happens in the book. I can honestly say that I am inspired by Scott and Susan Stevenson's level of resilience. I love this book.

"When I read a good book and good writing, it makes me want to write - reading your book made me want to write! I felt as if I was sitting down and catching up with an old friend over a cup of coffee. It's really a love story between you and Susan, also between you and your characters and with life - what you call the Magic." ------ Lynn Scozzari, Contributing Editor, San Diego Parent Magazine
"Scott, if my memory serves me right, wasn't English Language your worst subject in school? Didn't your report cards come home with mostly C's and D's? I can t believe you actually wrote a book . . . especially one this good. I loved it!" ------ Lilly Stevenson, Mother of the Author
"A fascinating tale and a superb read. I was really caught up in the story. Looks Easy Enough gave me an intimate view into the struggles of a patient trying to come to terms with a diagnosis of cancer and how best to treat it. Looks Easy Enough reminds me of Suzanne Somers' recently published book Knockout which takes a critical look at how ...
