I loved every minute of it. I understood her and related to her. More than self help. I love books that are read by the authors.

Before selling over a million copies of his Book of Awesome series and touring the world to teach Fortune 500 CEOs, Ivy league deans, and members of the royal family how to unlock a positive mind-set, Pasricha’s life hit rock bottom. He flamed out of his dream job and then racked up $300,000 of debt as a failed entrepreneur. He lost his best friend to suicide and his first wife to divorce - in the same week. And yet, inch by inch, Neil learned how to get back up. And you can, too.
