Anyone who knows or have followed Leeza Gibbons won't be surprised that she is the ultimate optimist, but they just might be surprised at how open she is about the challenges in her personal life and challenging career that makes her relatable to anyone who has a life. My friends can take what they need from a book like this and I know that I took plenty. Her outlook on life and situations is a deliberate and daily choice that has opened great doors for her and shut the ones that were destructive. This book is not just about winning but about the integrity and confidence of winning your way. Its a really easy read and gives you stuff you can use in situations right now...the timing for me was absolutely perfect. Well done, Ms. G!
