Book Description

10 Jan 2008
When Michelle Dewberry entered for The Apprentice, she was already earning a six-figure salary. However, she seized the chance to learn from one of Britain's most successful and charismatic businessmen, Sir Alan Sugar. The series earned huge ratings, but what few viewers understood was the struggles Michelle had undergone to get that far. Breaking free from a violent and abusive father, she had led her family to safety, while trying to come to terms with her grief at her sister's death. She suffered from bulimia and severe depression, but defeated her own personal demons to establish herself as a businesswoman with a refreshingly optimistic outlook. Catapulted into the public eye, Michelle had to overcome more private grief when she miscarried her baby. Yet despite all these difficulties she remains defiantly optimistic, and has gone on to succeed in business, writing, television and life-coaching. This book will give inspiration to all who read it. Michelle Dewberry could have seen herself as a victim, but she prefers to live life by the maxim 'If you believe in yourself, anything is possible' and knows that only she is responsible for achieving her ultimate goals.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational and motivational 20 Jun 2008
By Chelli
Michelle has fitted quite a lot into her life for somebody so young and her story is interesting enough to keep you turning the pages. From a tough upbringing with a violent abusive father and the unexplained death of her sister, Michelle left school with only 2 GCSE's, but then just a few years later she became a successful high earning businesswoman. You have to admire her for turning her life around like that entirely off her own steam.
Unfortunately, her writing is a bit vague and lacking in detail in parts, and she comes across as just a bit too self-assured sometimes, but then she didn't get to where she is today by being modest. However, I did find her story to be very inspirational and motivational, and I enjoyed her final chapter of tips on how to achieve what you want from life.

I love autobiographies and this is the best I have read by far. Michelle comes across as really down to earth. Unlike some celebrity autobiographies, she admits her mistakes and shares the lessons she has then gone on to learn from then. She is brave enough to share her most personal of experiences with the reader and through that you feel as though your going through that with her. Her final chapter on how to put her lessons into practice are really helpful and the whole books message is uplifting and motivating. In spite of all Michelle has obviously gone through, to read the story with her and see her come out a better and stronger person for it, can only be an inspiration to us all. Buy this book today and learn from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book can change your life! 29 Jun 2007
I am a school leaver and long admired Michelle's character throughout The Apprentice. She was an inspiration to many long before winning the show and this book just affirms that. Her forward thinking, do or die attitude pushed me to achieving my all through my exams and my grades, I half owe to her. Her book made me focus on what I want out of my life and how to get there. She doesn't just speak of her business head in the book but her personal life too which is why everyone can relate to her in one way or another. Whatever you're going through, she is the star guiding you through.

This book should be in everyone's collection. She can change your life, If you let her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michelle can offer us all hope 2 Aug 2007
Whenever I am at my lowest, I can pick up this book and instantaneously motivate myself to live again. To a girl like me who likes to believe that good always prevails in the end, Michelle just reiterates this belief. For all she has fought through and got past is nothing short of remarkable. Michelle is one of the good guys who deserves all she has got, and then some! Publishing such a private tale, I imagine must of been both hard and painful to do and go over again but by doing so, her message is nothing but inspiring and knowing that, I hope makes it all worthwhile for Michelle. This book can offer us all hope, buy it, buy it today!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5star read. 3 July 2007
The reviews below (bar one Mrs P???) pretty much say it all for me. Michelles journey is that of an inspirational one and rather than being a wannabe (again Mrs P), I get the impression Michelle wrote this in an effort to help those in similiar situations and to get people to live to their potential. Various stories I have since heard and reviews of this book, prove she has done just that. This book is a great motivational tool and should be in everyones collection. Buy it today. 5stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars buy this book now!!! 2 July 2007
I have long admired Michelle and for reasons beyond just that of winning The Apprentice. Her business brain can not be disputed and no-one can take her achievements from her. Her book is a fascinating read for all and whilst not a topic broached throughout it, through her story, she gave me the courage and self-belief to come out and be myself. For the first time in my life, someone inspired belief in me and that someone was Michelle Dewberry. She has proven that anything is possible if you believe in yourself. Be who you are and say what you feel because those that mind, do not matter and those that matter, do not mind. Dr Seuss. Whilst everyone is entitled to their own opinions, the review below, ignore it and do believe the hype because this book can change, everything. Enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! 2 July 2007
I was, like millions absolutely addicted to The Apprentice. Series2 was the best by far, Badger VS Blonde was a magnificent fight and a very deserving winner triumphed in the form of Miss Michelle Dewberry. Off the back of this, I bought this book and was amazed to find I liked her even more after reading it. To overcome such tragedy in her life to get where she is now is so inspirational and is a story we all should hold close to our hearts. Everyone has lost someone they love but how many of us can honestly say they used that same tragedy in motivating ourselves to a better life? Not me thats for sure, that is, until Michelle. I now pride myself on doing my lost loved ones proud and live each day as been. This book, Michelle has made all the difference to the way I think, act and live and all for the better too. Buy it today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jolly good read guys 1 July 2007
I originally got this book because I fancied Michelle like mad through The Apprentice. The book actually surprised me. My opinion of her relied solely on the fact I thought she was fit and the tabloids. She was really articulate throughout and the underlying message was always to believe in yourself and everything else will follow. I am a guy who normally strives on the outside image, what others think, therefore I am etc etc, however, Michelle taught even me, that others never matter as long as you know who you are and believe, you can get there because anything is possible. If anything, now think Michelle is fitter than ever.... Worth every penny, a jolly good read guys!
