Review: The Ice Cream Theory by Steff Deschenes

With its upbeat, conversational tone and broad appeal, The Ice Cream Theory is not a typical self-help book. The book strives to use that all-comfortable, all-inclusive, all-relatable dessert, ice cream, as the non-threatening medium to share insight to life when it comes to friendships, hardships and overcoming obstacles.

The Ice Cream Theory
is Steff Deschenes’s charming exploration of the parallels between human personalities and ice-cream flavors, a tongue-in-cheek celebration of the variety inherent in a well-lived life. This book utilizes humor and satire to encourage the reader to enjoy life, the people around it, and that nothing is by accident—everything happens for a reason.
From The Ice Cream Theory website

The Ice Cream Theory is possibly the most interesting book I have ever read.  Steff uses ice cream as a to explain the ups and downs of life.   Her approach was inspiring because she gets you to think about the past and how it has shaped you without you even realizing it.  I had a lot of fun reading this book and would recommend it to those who want to read a meaningful book without straining your brain.
