La vida real. Cómo prepararte para los siete días más difíciles de tu vida. (Real Life: Preparing for the 7 Most Challenging Days of Your Life) McGraw, Phil. tr. by Gerardo Hernández Clark. Mexico/U.S.: Aguilar: Santillana. 2009. 381p. ISBN 978-607-11-0183-9. pap. $19.99. SELF-HELP McGraw, better known as Dr. Phil, is one of America’s most widely-known TV personalities and self-help gurus. Since 2002, he has hosted the second highest-rated daytime talk show, authored numerous books, and established the Dr. Phil Foundation to help children and families. He is a former psychologist turned entertainer whose advice and methods have sometimes been described as simplistic. Nevertheless, his popularity and appeal are undeniable. Here, he selects seven life-changing days or events and proposes step-by-step plans for helping readers prepare, manage, and recover from these experiences. These potentially-crippling days are those in which people are confronted with loss, fear, personal breakdown, a medical or physical challenge, a mental health challenge, a problem of addiction, or an existential crisis. Using a simple, straight-forward, and intimate style, McGraw defines each event, describes what to expect, and recommends action steps needed to get back to better days. The book contains numerous self-assessment tools and a resource guide with websites and suggestions for further reading. While much of the advice is not unique or new, the book’s organization will be helpful to readers looking for quick help in coping with a particular event or problem. Dr. Phil’s popularity makes this an essential purchase for all public libraries andbookstores. Highly recommended.—Yolanda J. Cuesta, Cuesta MultiCultural Consulting, Sacramento, CA
