From Booklist

When Good Morning America cohost Roberts was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, she mounted a very public battle. Five years after completing treatment, she faced a rare bone-marrow disorder, likely caused by the cancer treatment, that again tested her strength and resolve, again in public. Following her mother’s time-honored advice to “make your mess your message,” Roberts offers an inspiring memoir of her life, from her home base in Mississippi to her home in New York and the glamorous though grueling life of a television reporter. Roberts prevailed through a painful bone-marrow transplant, with her sister as donor; the death of her mother; and her triumphant return to GMA after her medical leave, proudly wearing her bald head on air. With the infectious personality for which she’s known, Roberts details the support of family and friends and the people she’s met in her life and career who’ve inspired her by overcoming their own challenges with the “something” that everybody inevitably faces. Photos enhance this inspiring memoir. --Vanessa Bush

Format: Hardcover
Robin Roberts --- former college basketball player and current TV co-host, pilot and author --- has written her newest book with the help of Veronica Chambers. EVERYBODY’S GOT SOMETHING is devoted to detailing Roberts’s journey with her most recent health crisis --- the diagnosis, treatment and recovery from myelodysplastic syndrome, otherwise known as MDS.

In 2012, Roberts discovered a lump on her neck. A few weeks later, after her appearance at the Oscars, she received her devastating diagnosis. The illness would have been tough, no matter what, but it came just five years after her diagnosis of and subsequent battle with breast cancer. The MDS was caused by chemotherapy treatments she received to destroy the breast cancer cells. To make matters worse, during the treatment and recovery process for MDS, her mother passed away.

As with her battle with breast cancer, Roberts didn’t hide her struggles with MDS. Rather, she made a public announcement on “Good Morning America” (which she co-hosts) and documented her journey through journaling, video broadcasts, and now this book.

The memoir’s title was inspired by Roberts’s mother, who emphasized that hard times don’t discriminate. She used to say, “Everybody’s got something,” meaning that no matter what you are going through, you can know that everybody has had something they’ve had to deal with or are dealing with now.

I’m a huge fan of Robin Roberts. She is a wonderful lady with a big smile, a huge heart, and courage almost beyond measure. So it’s only natural that I jumped at the chance to read and review her book, and I’m so glad I did. As expected, it is filled with grace, humor, love and insight. You will alternate between laughing, crying and praying as you read her inspirational story.

Robin Roberts has a way with words as she does with people. I'm so glad she shared her story. Being a huge Team Robin supporter and fan through the years, I felt she did an excellent job as she described and walked us through her journey. A must read for anyone who has gone through it, going through it, or will go through it. Love to Robin!

I am, of course, happy to know she fought a hard battle and won, but I guess I had envisioned more depth and less name-dropping. It felt as if she were writing just a complimentary thank you to her friends and didn't want to leave any name out. I had hoped that "everybody" could relate to the majority of us, but only the top 1% of the world can fly private jets, take their friends to islands to celebrate, etc. I wanted her to relate to "everybody", as we all have "something" and don't all have money to get us through it.

I really like and respect Robin Roberts and anxiously looked forward to this book. Instead all I really got was a strong dose of how wonderful everyone in her life is and how much she loves them. What I didn't get was her mindset and what was it like to go through chemo and what's it like to be told you've got cancer repeated times. I really wanted Robin to take the reader through her thought process. I really admire Robin's courage to deal with the hand she's been dealt, I just wish I knew how she did/does it. Best Wishes Robin.

Should be subtitled "...but mine is more fabulous than yours". I get that the story is supposed to be inspiring but with all the name dropping it comes off as very egotistical. Millions go through the same struggles without the support of famous friends and without the life and job flexibility that Roberts enjoys. An interesting story, but that's all.

While sharing the gritty details of being diagnosed with MDS and beating it, Robin shares the wisdoms that she received that helped her get through it. The wisdom and incites shared can help you too, whether your battles are small but many or your a battle for your life. As a caregiver, I was also impressed that the book had great incites on words, actions, and thoughtful gift ideas that can help you if you are trying to decide how to best help someone going thru a significant challenge.

I loved this book, it makes you know how strong you can be with the help of friends and family. Robin knows that God is always watching out for her. Amber is such a special person and you can feel the love they have for each other. We all should have sisters and Fri

God bless Robin for sharing a very private part of her life with us. May God keep you strong and healthy for the rest of your life. I would tell everyone that this is a story worth reading because you never know when it could relate to you.

Roberts' story is a tough one, and I'm happy it came out well for her. I don't necessarily recommend it to people who are going through scary illnesses themselves. Few people have the size support group and the wealth of resources that she is lucky to enjoy. My daughter has terminal cancer, and at times, as I read this book, it struck me as flat unfair that Roberts was so overwhelmingly fortunate in all the help and consideration she was consistently shown. Few sick people are as lucky.

The book is very, very repetitive. Roberts repeats themes, sentiments, and exact lines. A lot. And did I mention it was repetitive?
