Acknowledging that one cannot control the painful events that naturally occur in life, the authors of these two books offer empathetic encouragement for not only getting through but also thriving. Best-selling scribe Rollin (First, You Cry; Last Wish) maintains that when people survive the bad and find the good, they discover resources and strength they didn't know they had. Having beat cancer and undergone two mastectomies, she eschews Pollyanna-ish advice for personal examples and research findings on people who've endured tragedies, weather-related upheavals, and aging issues. Rollin urges readers to live with a sense of gratitude and paves the way for doing so. In the same vein, Stephens (One Size Fits One), California state senator Jackie Speier, documentary filmmaker Michealene Cristini Risley, and television host Jan Yanehiro (Women of Vision) share their experiences, friendship, and tools for coping with life's curveballs. They speak honestly of the joys and sorrows inherent in families, relationships, and the workplace and encourage readers to deal honestly and courageously with their own issues. Quotations from well-known women are sprinkled throughout, as are action plans and exercises geared to provoke action. Both books are excellent. While Rollin's book tends to focus on cancer, the other is multidimensional. Both for public libraries. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
