Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow by Elizabeth Lesser

I heard about this book through Oprah a while back. When I saw the author, Elizabeth Lesser, on the show, her story really sounded interesting, and I downloaded the book. Recently, I was scanning my Nook, looking for something to read, and I decided to try it.

Normally, after I finish a book, I can't wait to write about, but with this book, I was not going to blog about it all. After much thought about the purpose of this blog, which is to support people in living "Their Best Lives", I decided that I can not only blog about books that I love, I have to blog about books period and hope that they are a blessing to someone. So, here is the blog about Broken Open.

This book deals with experiencing difficult situations such as a divorce, death, loss of a job etc. Elizabeth tells her own story of divorce and tells others' stories of how they went through hard times and prevailed.

If I had not read so many self-help books and had not done quite a bit of life work, I would have found this book to very insightful and helpful. But, this book has a lot of the same ideas that are in other self-help books so, I never had that aha moment.

However, if you are going through difficult times, I think that this book is one to give you concrete examples of what others did to WIN!
