At long last, a book that truly comes across as a true reflection of a distressed, but amazingly powerful, determined human being.
In my personal quest of fighting my very own Beast, I have come across (and wasted my money) too many 'motivational' books -books that quote famous out of the average person's league on how to be successful, famous, adorable; some others basically tell you how to advance in life by cutting your co-workers throats. Those are the kind of literature that in most cases has convinced me not to be successful, but, instead, to lobby for a law that forbids publishers to print whatever 'you can do it-it's so easy-if Bill Gates/Steve Jobs could, so can you' rubbish, accompanied by ready-made phrases and fad quotations.
I for one have literally wasted my money in the vast number of books I have purchased on the subject, on my very own attempt to make sense of my very own struggle with adversity, spiritual and physical exhaustion... Only to wish there were a return policy on the basis of the aforementioned books being what I'd politely describe as a whole pile of bull... manure.
Valerie Silveira speaks out without fear nor favour of her heart-crushing experience -one that many a person, including myself, has had to go through.
It is obvious to me she does not write with any other motivation except that of wholeheartedly share her story with the honest aim of letting -assuring- her readers to know, we are not alone in our ordeals -that someone else has been to hell and back; that they have triumphed over their own Beast and lived: just as she assures us, we will too.
One one detail I was not so convinced about is the self-quoting -but I am guessing this observation should address the editor, not the author.
An excellent story, and a great source of encouragement, to let us know we are not alone and that there is, indeed, hope after all.
