Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“In my humble opinion, this is the best book SARK has yet written.”
Christiane Northrup, PhD, author of The Wisdom of Menopause and Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

“In her unique and marvelous way, SARK shares her own story with humor and honesty, inspiring us with her wisdom. In Glad No Matter What, she shows us how to live with greater genuine happiness even when we’re facing tough challenges or tumultuous change. I loved this book!”
Marci Shimoff, New York Times bestselling author of Happy for No Reason

“It’s easy to get caught up in one side of loss and change — adversity — especially in times like these. But there’s another side of the coin — opportunity — that is so much bigger, fresher, and more abundant in the long run. In a masterful way that’s almost a left brain/right brain tango, SARK has laid out the path for us to transform our lives no matter what the world throws at us.”
Chip Conley, founder of Joie de Vivre hotels and author of Peak

“SARK has done it again. She’s taken the harrowing life challenges of dealing with loss and change, turned them upside down, and created a powerful healing path that will calm fears, warm hearts, and transform lives forever. Way to go, SARK!”
Cheryl Richardson, author of Take Time for Your Life and The Art of Extreme Self-Care

“In Glad No Matter What, SARK reminds us that life presents each one of us with unique and incredible gifts all wrapped up in different ways. We each must delve deep down and find the courage to open those gifts and rejoice to see how they will change our soul. This book is your guide on how to open those gifts!”
James Van Praagh, spiritual medium and author of Unfinished Business

“SARK has birthed yet another profound gift in her latest work, Glad No Matter What. She shows the gifts in healing from loss with her approachable and simple language, illustrating the kind of transformation that is possible as we dare to mend our broken hearts.”
Kristine Carlson, author of Heartbroken Open and Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff for Women

“SARK’s wisdom, compassion, joy, and humor are among the brightest lights I know. In Glad No Matter What, she offers outstanding tools and inspiration to make everything you encounter work in your favor. I wish everyone would read this book and bring these heartful lessons to life!”
Alan Cohen, author of A Daily Dose of Sanity

“SARK gives you practical, real ways to find your joy. Happiness is in your ability to navigate the real-life ups and downs in a way that is honest and generates more ‘gladness’ and gratitude by being truthful about where you are. This is a wonderful and tangible book that will help so many authentically smile from the inside.”
Mariel Hemingway, author, actress, health enthusiast, and adventurer

Library Journal
San Francisco-based inspirational artist and speaker SARK (Succulent Wild Woman: Dancing with Your Wonder-Full Self!) invites readers to transform loss and pain into joy in this work printed with her handwriting and illustrated with multicolor artwork. Sharing her own experiences of loss, including the deaths of her mother, Marvelous Marjorie, and her cat, Jupiter (featured prominently in her earlier writings), SARK invites us to acknowledge strong and ambivalent feelings surrounding loss and to experience them in a middle place between love and hate where healing happens. Readers are then guided to find the GLAD (giving lovingly and daringly) parts of negative feelings and to identify, experience, accept, and share the gifts of death that lead to changes and opportunities. Each section concludes with a "screen of contemplation" (ideas for further reflection), quotes and "remarkable resources" (books, websites, music). The book ends with personal stories from people who have been transformed through change and loss. VERDICT SARK leads by example, offering gentle, humorous, and colorful instructions for learning to move through life's difficult times.—Lucille M. Boone, San Jose P.L., CA

    Great Book With A Timely Message.

    There are no words for this book other than for you to buy it for yourself. If you'd love a story about triumph over life's bumps in the road, this is it. I'd also recommend that you buy "When God Stopped Keeping Score." an intimate look at the power of God and forgiveness. Given the chance, it will change your life.

    This book should not be an e-book.

    I cannot read this book on my Nook due to the type of font. It is so small and unreadable and my device cannot change the font because that is how it is published. I will have to try to read it on my computer.
