How to Be Happy Even When Life Has Other Plans for You
By Linda Richman (Electronic Book, 2001)
She's a summa cum laude graduate of the School of Hard Knocks. A lecturer at Canyon Ranch (yeah, that fancy spa). A woman who reaches out to help others by sharing her own incredible story. She's also, believe it or not, the mother-in-law of comedian Mike Myers--and even inspired some of his craziest sketches with her irresistible sense of humor. The thing that will impress you the most, though, is Linda's string of almost unbelievable losses and setbacks--and the equally unbelievable way she's dealt with them. How did Linda persevere? She will tell you about the subway rides and the cleaning binges, the loneliness, the relentless spiritual questing, and all-night sessions with the saddest movies she could find. And then she'll tell you about the healing--how the process slowly revealed itself and how she has used it to heal others. In the words of Linda herself, this is a "self-help book for people who realize self-help doesn't come in books." In it, she offers the type of blunt, no-nonsense advice you probably haven't heard since that bold, brassy, always-reliable best friend of your youth gave you a breath-of-fresh-air reality chec
