"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. I''ll be sharing
this book widely, but keeping one copy permanently on my nightstand
for all the times I''ll need its wisdom and warmth."
-Will Schwalbe, author of The End of
Your Life Book Club
"Full of smart intentions and kind reminders . . . Uplifting advice
we''ll gladly take." -Better Homes &
"Very warm, humble, sometimes funny, infused with a spirit of
optimism." -The Jewish Week
"The book is not about her breast cancer per se but about making
choices (each chapter is titled "Choose.") that will improve
readers'' lives and relationships and remind them ''of the beauty
of life.'' More than cancer sufferers will be glad they picked up
this tiny gem." -Library Journal
"It may be short, but it''s powerful. An absolutely beautiful
book." -Sue Monk Kidd
"Writing with sparkling directness, warmth, humor, and long-steeped
wisdom, Hoffman has created a companionable and genuinely useful
book for times of crisis. Small, intimate, and lovely . . .
Hoffman''s storytelling artistry enlivens each intimate,
thoughtfully distilled, charming, and nurturing lesson in living."
