Jerry White is one of the leaders of the Nobel Peace Prize winning International Campaign to Ban Landmines. He helped found "Survivor Corps" - an organization that helps those impacted by global conflict.
Jerry's story, and the stories of the people he's met through his work are amazing. Even more uplifting is his advice to overcoming a life crisis. Whatever that crisis may be. Death? Divorce? Serious illness?
Five Steps. Five steps to getting through it. Five steps to coming out stronger.
I'm not generally the kind of person who says, "Get over it, get on with it." I feel things genuinely and deeply. "Crises" affect me for the long-term. I wasn't sure I'd be able to review this book positively if it was a "pick yourself up by the bootstraps" type of advice.
It's inspiring. The people are wonderfully real. Their stories will break your heart. Their strength will lift you up. You'll learn to understand "before" and "after".

This book was worth it to me for this chapter alone.
As a kickoff for this site - and to celebrate this first review, I'm going to award a copy of this book to a random commenter - so you can have your own little dose of inspiration.
