Book Description

5 Jun 2003
Each week day morning the Trisha show consistently brings in the highest audience rating for its time slot. The magic ingredients are regular people with everyday family troubles and Trisha's no-nonsense, common sense approach to how her guests might take positive steps to help themselves. This book takes you through all the challenges, choices and changes that are faced within the family and includes: Losing and choosing a partner - are you making the same mistakes over and over? Being a parent - what kind of parent do you really want to be? Step-families - is the Brady Bunch just a bunch of lies? Fighting fair - can you deal calmly and effectively with conflict? Trisha is no stranger to the trials and tribulations of family life. Her sister committed suicide and she also went through a time of very serious depression herself. She has learnt the hard way how to put her family first and contributes much of her own fascinating personal story to this very positive and helpful book, alongside her husband Peter Gianfrancesco, who is a chief executive for the mental health charity MIND, and many other real-life success stories which highlight the issues throughout. The book also includes expert help and advice from psychologist Dr. Terri Van Leeson. There are lots of exercises and quizzes throughout. It is full of Trisha's humour and is as direct as she is to her guests. This is the book that helps you focus not just on yourself but also those around you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sound Advice 6 Jun 2003
By A Customer
I read this book really quickly. I found the style very down to earth and the advice very practical. The idea of having various members of the one family comment on the same event or issue was realistic and gave a good insight into how many families interact with each other. The fact that the book involves a TV celebrity is almost incidental....Trisha clearly knows what she is talking about and not just from experience. Her husband, Peter and Terri Van Leeson are also obviously very knowledgable and their comments and takes are often spot on. I think this is a really good book with the bonus of giving us an insight into the life of a celebrity!

5.0 out of 5 stars Trisha Goddard family survival Guide 19 Sep 2003
I borrowed a copy of this book from my local library, i did not put it down once. Trisha, her family and her friends make you look at family life in a completly different light. Trisha talks about everything bad relationships to family life with your children. There is also little tests in there aswell. It's a very good book and i fully recomend the book to anyone. If your a fan of Trisha's show then you will be a fan of her book aswell.

This is a really practical, enjoyable and easy to read book. Trisha may be a celebrity, but is doesn't matter, her experiences and depth of knowledge shine through in the book.
Dr Terri Van Leeson provides a great insight in what actually is happening and really helps in getting understanding through to the reader about family and human dynamics. This is a really great book and definately worth the investment!!
