While most people say the key to success is a willingness to break the rules, to think outside the box, to ignore boundaries, Robin Roberts, whose own spectacular success as a college basketball star, ESPN commentator, and co-anchor on Good Morning America is undisputed, is here to tell listeners something different. In her considerable experience, there are seven rules whose importance cannot be ignored.

In the tradition of such best-sellers as Maria Shriver's And One More Thing Before You Go, Anna Quindlen's A Short Guide to a Happy Life, and Marlo Thomas' The Right Words at the Right Time, From the Heart is the perfect gift for new grads, and an inspiring listen for anyone searching for the path to success.

    " It was an okay read. I normally am not that interested in reading motivational books but read this since I got it for free. I liked how she made it clear that it's good to dream but that you still have to be practical. It was a bit short though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christa | 8/3/2012

    " Unfortunately, I did not love this book. It seemed a little haphazzard and it belonged more in the autobiography section than in the Inspirational section. It wasn't a horrible book, just not a great one. "
