"While there is nothing new about finding a silver lining in a cloud, this thought is only comforting if it comes from a credible source; and here, Rollin's voice is comforting....Rollin is not religious....but she is relentlessly positive." (Publishers Weekly)

Here's the bright side: If you've ever dreamed of writing a book, but had absolutely nothing to say, this book will be a huge inspiration for you. The author prattles on and on in a series of unrelated and boring antic dotes, all the while quoting other authors and their books. I agree that it can be uplifting to hear other survivors’ success stories, but this is more like a list of people she has known or heard about who have been fortunate enough to overcome their obstacle and learn from it. They aren't even complete stories.
I have tried repeatedly to listen to this book, but have yet to get more than half way through it. At one point the author relates how she was fired from Vogue magazine, not because she was a bad writer, but because she "didn't know anything". She still doesn't. And her style is annoying.
