Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Acknowledging that one cannot control the painful events that naturally occur in life, the authors of these two books offer empathetic encouragement for not only getting through but also thriving. Best-selling scribe Rollin (First, You Cry; Last Wish) maintains that when people survive the bad and find the good, they discover resources and strength they didn't know they had. Having beat cancer and undergone two mastectomies, she eschews Pollyanna-ish advice for personal examples and research findings on people who've endured tragedies, weather-related upheavals, and aging issues. Rollin urges readers to live with a sense of gratitude and paves the way for doing so. In the same vein, Stephens (One Size Fits One), California state senator Jackie Speier, documentary filmmaker Michealene Cristini Risley, and television host Jan Yanehiro (Women of Vision) share their experiences, friendship, and tools for coping with life's curveballs. They speak honestly of the joys and sorrows inherent in families, relationships, and the workplace and encourage readers to deal honestly and courageously with their own issues. Quotations from well-known women are sprinkled throughout, as are action plans and exercises geared to provoke action. Both books are excellent. While Rollin's book tends to focus on cancer, the other is multidimensional. Both for public libraries.

    Practical Inspiration to Help Women Get the Best Out of Life in Even the Hardest Times

    One of the most remarkable things about THIS IS NOT THE LIFE I ORDERED is how it absolutely validates women who have noticed that it is just about impossible to achieve perfect balance in their lives. No matter how we may strive to 'have it all', we discover time and time again that such a lofty goal seldom happens in real life... but all manner of unexpected problems occur instead. THIS IS NOT THE LIFE I ORDERED suggests how we can savor what we have when we have it, noting that most peoples lives go through passages of romantic, financial, career, and family happiness... and how we can find ways to navigate the times of tremendous challenge that can rock us to our very core. I especially love the way the four authors have truly experienced some of life's biggest ups and downs, and how open and honest they are at sharing what it felt like to be shot and left for dead in a foreign land... or being the star of a highly popular TV show, which was abruptly cancelled. The advice these women share is truly food for the soul, as it comes across just as warmly as if it were being told to us across the kitchen table from one of our dearest friends. Indeed, one of the top tips this book provides is that rather than holing up alone in a cave when things get tough, women are most resilient when we make time and space for a group of other women friends in our lives who are also in transition. The notion that difficult times present us with opportunities is an old one, but it is presented in delicious clarity in this excellent guide to successfully navigating the unexpected eddies, currents, rapids and waterfalls in the river of life. I highly recommend this book to all women everywhere... as no matter how well we might plan how things are going to go, we can be fairly certain that some things will surprise us along the way, and we could use a little help from women who have made it through all the turbulence a little wiser by reinventing themselves along the way.

    Funny & Uplifting!

    These women know what they are talking about! They are funny and no matter how dire the situation-they have found some uplifting way of looking at it. They can help you get through good times and bad with practical advice we can all use-starting NOW. It is as easy to read as sitting down for coffee with your friends. I am buying a copy for all my friends and family. Thanks girls!
