Description

The bestselling author and cancer survivor delivers "an optimistic instruction manual . . . [for] anyone struggling with self-care in a time of trouble" (Story Circle Book Reviews).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."In this gem of a book, Alice Hoffman acknowledges the sorrows of life, while reminding us of its joys. Survival Lessons is filled with love, insight, and lots of practical advice—including a crazy-good brownie recipe." —Will Schwalbe, New York Times–bestselling author of The End of Your Life Book Club"Hoffman's storytelling artistry enlivens each intimate, thoughtfully distilled, charming, and nurturing lesson in living." —Booklist"Full of smart intentions and kind reminders . . . Uplifting advice we'll gladly take." —Better Homes & Gardens"The book is not about her breast cancer per se but about making choices that will improve readers' lives and relationships and remind them 'of the beauty of life.'" —Library Journal
