This Is Not the Life I Ordered


Four successful women share their hardships and their strength: “An object lesson in the power of friendship—and the power of perseverance.” —Arianna Huffington, author of On Becoming Fearless

For over a decade, four women came together for weekly “kitchen table coaching” sessions designed to support each other through life’s ups and downs. They experienced marriage and motherhood, divorce and widowhood. They’d had their hearts broken by a failed adoption or a partner’s infidelity; they’d started companies and lost companies; they’d cared for loved ones through terminal illness; and one of them even experienced being shot and left for dead during the Jonestown massacre—only to go on to a career in the US House of Representatives.

The power and strength of their collective friendship has enabled them to not only survive but thrive, and the remarkable results can be found in this collection of lessons, stories, and wisdom. Part autobiography, part self-help book, This Is Not the Life I Ordered also teaches you how to put together your own gathering of kitchen-table friends, and is filled with useful strategies for: • Finding courage
• Managing misfortune
• Understanding money
• Reinventing yourself
• Learning to love your mistakes
• Facing naysayers and much more

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
