I feel like such a sell-out for even buying this book, even though I bought it used and have found it really useful. Back in January, I decided to start lifting weights regularly. I tried to lift weights in our apartment and make my own routine, but I lacked focus. I had heard good things about Buff Brides, and in a moment of I-don't-know-what, I ordered it.
It's actually pretty good. I don't know how it works for people who don't have a solid fitness and weight training background, but none of the exercises are that new to me - it's a slightly different way to doing some of them, but it's pretty basic. It's just nice to have somebody else do the work of coming up with a routine. The exercises don't take up that much time, and if you have all the equipment at home, you don't have to be embarrassed by 1) reading from a book in the gym and 2) reading from a book about how to look hott in your wedding dress at the gym. If you do want to invest in getting the right equipment at home, I recommend having weights that can be changed in and out, so you can step up the amount of weight (which is something a lot of women weight training don't do.)
I'm not really sure who this book is for. I think it's for anybody who works out regularly and wants a weight routine to help tone them up (like me). I don't think it will work for people who can't handle a workout routine at all. If you aren't going to work out regularly, that's something internal, not something you can solve by buying books, DVDs, a treadmill, or a gym membership.
