Overview

How to Save Your Own Life: 15 Inspiring Lessons Including: Finding Blessings in Disguise, Coping with Life's Greatest Challanges, and Discovering Happiness at Any Age by Michael Gates Gill

The author of the New York Times bestseller How Starbucks Saved My Life perks up America with inspiring lessons on finding true happiness at any age and any stage of life.

Michael Gill's lemons-to-lemonade memoir chronicled his transformative year working at Starbucks after losing his high-powered job, his marriage, and his health (he developed a brain tumor). In response to overwhelming requests from readers who wanted to know how they, too, could weather downturns, he has distilled his wisdom into fifteen meaningful lessons, including:

? Leap...With faith: Sometimes it pays to leap without looking and say "yes" without thinking (Gill accepted the Starbucks job immediately, on a whim).

? Let . . .Yourself be Helped: pride is even more paralyzing than fear.

? Lose . . .Your Watch (and Cell phone and PDA!): Our obsession with productivity produces madness, not gladness.

Offering living proof that extraordinary happiness is found in ordinary moments, How to Save Your Own Life provides empowering words and hope for anyone facing a reversal of fortune. True fortune, Gill discovered, lies not in fate but in discovering the innate capacity we all possess to rescue ourselves.
