"Peace From Broken Pieces" by Iyanla Vanzant

Iyanla Vanzant lost EVERYTHING...and I mean EVERYTHING...her television show...her career that she built up...her book deals (she went bankrupt and owes her publishers mega-bucks)...she lost her husband (he divorced her), her only child (a daughter, who died), her beautiful home. In short, she had a falling out with Oprah Winfrey over 11 years ago (she just apppeared on Oprah's show to literally "air" their differences. In the old days, Iyanla appeared on Oprah's show every other Tuesday, and she was next in line to launch her own show (alla Dr. Phil). Iyanla was spiritual teacher and she was on her way to fame and fortune. But she lost all she had, and now realizes now that she plain didn't know how to negotiate business deals and ultimately protect herself, financially and emotionally and psychologically. Her new book, PEACE FROM BROKEN PIECES, tells her very powerful, and ultimately, victorious story - and I don't know too many people who wouldn't benefit from reading it. I know I will.
