Better late than never right?

Let’s start off with the first thing you should know about this book: if you’re expecting something along the lines of Diary Of A Mad Diva or I Hate Everybody…Starting With Me, then you will be disappointed by this book.

If you are looking for practical advice, from someone who genuinely has survived through bankruptcy, her husband’s suicide, being fired multiple times and yet persevered by fighting her way back, then you will love this book.

Ms. Rivers offers the reader her life stories, sharing the most painful chapters of her incredible story, with an honesty that will be appreciated. She does not hide the fact that she does not have a degree in counselling, in the hopes that what she has to offer in terms of experience, coupled with how she dug her way out of the bad times, will be relatable to the reader on one level or another. You will not find a clinical-esque format from a Doctor of Psychology that will attempt to analyze you, or provide a diagnosis. Instead, you find yourself being welcomed into a friend’s house, listening to their comforting advice, letting you know that you’ve got someone who knows and has shared your pain, and will support you.

The primary focus throughout the book, is the death of her husband Edgar Rosenberg, who committed suicide on August 14, 1987. Ms. Rivers shares the moment that her daughter Melissa received the call about the death of her father, and how she dealt with it, whilst also having most (if not all) job opportunities falling away from her. And to top it all off, Ms. Rivers and her daughter become estranged, due to the blame of whose fault it was that Edgar had died, as well as the differences of opinion of how to deal with the death.
