The author lost her father as a child, was raised by a powerfully dysfunctional mother, escaped from a vacuous marriage, and lost her only son to a car accident. Along the way, she was confined to her apartment for 11 years with phobias. After coaxing herself back into the real world and absorbing many motivational tapes and lectures, she became, you guessed it, an inspirational speaker. The resulting book, smoothly abridged in this audio, will urge you to cry when you need to, and to use laughter and trust in yourself when tragedies pile up. The inspiration here is good, though the tragedies may pile up on the listener. T.W. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
