Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of America's most beloved writers shares her suggestions for finding beauty in the world even during the toughest times.

Survival Lessons provides a road map of how to reclaim your life from this day forward, with ways to reenvision everything--from relationships with friends and family to the way you see yourself. As Alice Hoffman says, "In many ways I wrote Survival Lessons to remind myself of the beauty of life, something that's all too easy to overlook during the crisis of illness or loss. I forgot that our lives are made up of equal parts of sorrow and joy, and that it is impossible to have one without the other. I wrote to remind myself that despite everything that was happening to me, there were still choices I could make."

Wise, gentle, and wry, Alice Hoffman teaches all of us how to choose what matters most.

Synopsis:

Fifteen years ago, Alice Hoffman received a diagnosis that changed everything about the life she'd been living. Most significant--aside from the grueling physical ordeal she underwent--was the way it changed how she felt inside and what she thought she ought to be doing with her days. But when she looked around for the book that would show her the way, she could not find it.
