She's a summa cum laude graduate of the School of Hard Knocks, a lecturer at Canyon Ranch (yeah, that fancy spa), and 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 the inspiration for some of his craziest sketches.

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 cleaning binges, the loneliness, the relentless spiritual questing, and the 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 this audiobook, Linda offers the type of blunt, no-nonsense advice you probably haven't heard since that bold, brass, always reliable best friend of your youth gave you a breath-of-fresh-air reality check. The truth is, when it comes to facing the worst that life can dish out, you don't need to reinvent the wheel. Linda Richman has been there before you. Download and start listening now!

    " This is Mike Myers mother-in-law and the basis for his character on Saturday Night Live's "Coffee Talk" segments. She's truly the character that he portrays and quite a strong woman. "

    " I didn't even finish this book. The author is so extremely negative, you just don't buy she ever laughs. And she spent the first 50 pages just trying to explain how horrible of a person her mother was/is. "

    " This book was great in the beginning....very funny and entertaining, but after you get about half way through the author is just repeating over and over again the same message and same stories. I ended up not finishing, which is something I rarely do. "
