New York Times best-selling author Iyanla Vanzant recounts the last decade of her life and the spiritual lessons learned - from the price of success during her meteoric rise as a TV celebrity on Oprah, the Iyanla TV show (produced by Barbara Walters), to the dissolution of her marriage and her daughter's 15 months of illness and death on Christmas day.

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Iyanla shares why everything we need to learn is reflected in our relationships and explains the strength and wisdom she has gained by supporting others in their journeys to make sense out of the puzzle pieces of their lives.

    " It is hard for me to read about children being abused by anybody. So I did not expect to read this in her story. If she can survive and thrive then so can we. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 1/31/2014

    " A very exhausting read, which wasn't a bad thing. It was filled with quotes and ideas that I made a list of. I felt sorry it took Ms. Vanzant so long to "get" the things she was counseling others about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlene | 1/27/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsay | 11/26/2013

    " Definitely not a book you can't put down. I find it difficult to recommend a book that appears to be mainly about her healing through writing this book rather than what the title implies: how to get through what your going through. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe | 11/8/2013

    " I really wanted to love this book. After seeing Ms. Vanzant on Oprah (twice!) last month I tore through this book. For me, it's too repetitive and frustrating. I found myself saying, "Ok, I get it, I get it" more than a few times. "

    " I found this book to be a very telling view into Iyanla's life. Almost like an auto-biography, the book describes her life from the earliest memories to her daughter's passing. It provoked much thought and communication for myself and between my wife and I. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lifelearner | 3/31/2012

    " Very intriguing story of her life, this read like a memoir. I must admit only reason I picked it up was after Iyanla was on Oprah having such an all out meeting of the minds show down on Oprah's show. So sad about Iyanla's daughter. I hope she truly has peace. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cheryl | 3/6/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Damaris Reid | 9/12/2011

    " I've read a number of iyanla's books. This one was good but not as good as her other books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carlton | 8/8/2011

    " Excellent book. Although anyone could benefit from reading this book, it would especially help a lot of women who have been in abusive situations or women who are struggling to find their place in the world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lakeisha | 7/31/2011

    " I could relate to Vanzant's feelings of unworthiness and abuse by the men in her life. As a parent I also found her difficulty dealing with daughter's illness and loss of o be heartbreaking. Everything that happens/occurs in life is for our soul's learning and benefit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karlene | 4/1/2011

    " I liked the book because it was a female perspective, yet different than my own background. It was autobiographical, yet covered a variety of subjects such as relationships, psychology, entreprenuerism, health, and spirituality that others could relate to within their own lifes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lzarrow | 3/30/2011

    " Wow! This woman has had some life. Lot's of personal issues occurring year after year yet she picks herself up and keeps going. Touching, inspiring and a little frightening (as her life is a mess at times). For someone who advised others, she made many poor choices in her own life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jabdulai | 3/18/2011

    " Very frank account of her life, challenges, strengths, weaknesses, misjudegements etc. Def recommend! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 2/25/2011

    " I really enjoyed this honest tale of loss, love,and discovery. She is refreshingly honest, almost too honest. Aside from typos in the Kindle edition, I really enjoyed this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 cat | 1/22/2011

    " I'm moved by her honesty in admitting her role in her problems. She is inspiring. "
