Overview

Life can really suck. But it doesn't have to. With the help of esteemed consultant and coach Michelle DeAngelis, life can really rock. DeAngelis serves up a combination of street-smart wisdom and cheerful irreverence as she shows readers how to enjoy the "ride of their lives," regardless of the roadblocks or potholes along the way. By providing the specific mechanics to joy, DeAngelis shows that joy is a repeatable by-product of living one's life in integrity and of making conscious choices every day that kick misery, worry, and guilt to the curb. She explains how most people are not naturally equipped to deal with life's challenges and then introduces foundational tools and effective techniques to take readers from crappy to happy.
She starts with a Joy Quotient Quiz that gives readers their "JQ" score and identifies their "Gap"--the measurable difference between what people think and what they do--which is where life sucks. She then teaches a four-step, fast-acting process that provides "suck relief" to solve everyday problems. The centerpiece of the work is DeAngelis's 10 Life-Changing Ahas.
From the title to the very last line, Get a Life That Doesn't Suck is not your everyday self-help book. Through humor and real-life examples, DeAngelis explains how readers can reduce their stress, improve their outlook, and get rid of whatever is holding them back. She provides the formula for readers to make joy real and accessible so that the journey from "life sucks" to "life rocks" is worth the trip.

This is an excellent book. I am a student of self help books and have read many. This one is a great summary of much of the best stuff I have read. It is enjoyable, useful, motivating. I went on this site today, not to write a review but to order extra copies so that I can give them to friends that would benefit as well as to get a copy for me that I can underline and take notes in without ruining my original version. Seeing how few reviews were written called me to action. DeAngelis deserves to sell a million copies and a million readers need to immediately work on getting a life that doesn't suck.

This book is the launching point if you're ready to strengthen your back-bone and learn how to fully command respect from others, and have respect for yourself. You have to be ready though; totally at your wits ends with the way your life is going. It's "YOUR PERSONAL" Eat, Pray, Love experience. I HIGHLY recommend it!
