Now a New York Times Bestseller -- True stories inspired by one of the most iconic, beloved, bestselling books of our time
 
In the ten years since its electrifying debut, Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love has become a worldwide phenomenon, empowering millions of readers to set out on paths they never thought possible, in search of their own best selves. Here, in this candid and captivating collection, nearly fifty of those readers—people as diverse in their experiences as they are in age and background—share their stories. The journeys they recount are transformative—sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, but always deeply inspiring.

Eat Pray Love
helped one writer to embrace motherhood, another to come to terms with the loss of her mother, and yet another to find peace with not wanting to become a mother at all. One writer, reeling from a difficult divorce, finds new love overseas; another, a lifelong caregiver, is inspired to take an annual road trip, solo. A man leaves seminary, embraces his sexual identity, and forges a new relationship with God. A woman goes to divinity school and grapples with doubt and belief. One writer’s search for the perfect pizza leads her to New Zealand and off-the-grid homesteading, while another, in overcoming an eating disorder, redefines her relationship not only with food but with herself. Some writers face down devastating illness and crippling fears, and others step out of their old lives to fulfill long-held dreams of singing, acting, writing, teaching, and learning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Collection What a compliment to have written such powerful, inspiring words that you have received enough real-life -impact fan mail that you can turn that into a story book to further empower people! (do you follow?) Truly powerful movement through literature!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes!! I'm not biased at all. Ok, perhaps a tad, as an Elizabeth Gilbert fan. I thought the collection was an invigorating reminder of what the book we all love has been able to help us achieve, understand or overcome. The essays were all well-written, touching and mostly relatable. It was interesting to read this perspective, to know there were people moved by someone's genuine experience to the point where they could rise and take control of their lives. I was moved. Thanks to all the people who opened up to share their stories.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An inspiring read As someone who loved the memoir, "Eat Pray Love", I was very excited to see this on the shelves of the library. I couldn't wait to read of how people became inspired and transformed their own lives after reading about Elizabeth Gilbert's journey. This compilation of essays was not a disappointment. Each story was inspiring and it was interesting to read of each individual's "moment" when they knew that they had to make a change. This book has made me want to reread Eat Pray Love and read more memoirs of those who have had transformational journeys. Definitely an inspiring read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from EPLMDI Review After reading Eat Pray Love, I was moved at how it impacted my life substantially. Although I have yet to experience my final results of the impact it made, I can already notice the difference. While I was reading Eat Pray Love, I couldn't help but to wonder how many other lives were affected. One of my next trips to the bookstore, I came upon this book. It was exactly what I was looking for. This book is compiled solely of testimonies from individuals who have been affected. I was amazed at how many people were going through the same things I am now, and how they ended up changing their lives. Although I'm not about to quit my job, it was interesting to read the small things people did that made such a difference. If you ever need a motivator, I'm not sure you could come across a better book. #PlumReview
