How to Save your Own Life
15 Lessons on Finding Hope in Unexpected PlacesBook - 2009
Michael Gill's lemons-to-lemonade memoir chronicled his transformative years working at Starbucks after losing his high-powered job, his marriage, and his health (he developed a brain tumor). In response to overwhelming requests from readers who wanted to know how they, too, could weather downturns, he has distilled his lessons into fifteen meaningful lessons. Offering living proof that extraordinary happiness is found in ordinary moments, Gill provides empowering words and hope for anyone facing a reversal of fortune. True fortune, he discovered, lies not in fate but in discovering the innate capacity we all possess to rescue ourselves.
