Take 2 by Leeza Gibbons

I found some useful tips in this book, which is all about being happier, achieving your goals, and overcoming your fears.  I especially liked Leeza Gibbon's metaphors about treating your life as a story and writing your own script.  However, it wasn't all that different from other self-help books.  I would have liked to learn more about how Gibbons coped with her mother's Alzheimer's disease - this might have distinguished it from other self-help books. She has excellent advice for caregivers in the video here.

Another problem is that reading this book can be defeatist if you start comparing yourself with the author.  A great beauty, she is also a successful journalist and TV presenter of 'America Now'.  She is also married to a younger man! She's a lovely person, but all of this could make you feel worse, not better, if you're not careful!
