Review

Rita and I have so much in common. We both hail from Tennessee, raised in families so poor neither of us had an indoor pot to piddle in. Both of us were tiny back-country blondes with great big dreams, girls who grew up in poverty but never saw it as anything but a minor inconvenience. We both shared bushels of determination, and neither of us was ever willing to accept what folks told us we couldn t do. Rita shattered the proverbial glass ceiling, and used the shards to make the cutest li'l sequin dress. I love the girl! And you ll love Funny Side Up! --Dolly Parton, award-winning singer and songwriter

If you are ready to experience vastly more sunshine in every aspect of your life, read my friend Rita s brilliant new book, Funny Side Up. Even better, read it, absorb it, use its wisdom in your life and share it with those you love and bring the sunshine into their lives, too! --Mark Victor Hansen, co-creator of the bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul series

Rita Davenport has such a depth of experience and wealth of good ideas that I listen to whatever she says and read whatever she writes. Her ability to teach great truths with warmth and humor make her a powerful communicator. I ve learned from her, and you will, too, if you read her excellent new book. I recommend it. --Mark Sanborn, award-winning speaker and author of The Fred Factor and You Don t Need a Title to be a Leader

More About the Author

John David Mann is an award-winning author whose writings have earned the Nautilus Award, the Axiom Business Book Award (Gold Medal), and Taiwan's Golden Book Award for Innovation; his books are published in more than two dozen languages and have sold more than 2 million copies. He is coauthor of the international bestseller "The Go-Giver" with Bob Burg, the New York Times bestsellers "The Red Circle" with Brandon Webb and "Flash Foresight" with Daniel Burrus, "Take the Lead" with Betsy Myers (named Best Leadership Book of 2011 by Tom Peters and The Washington Post), and the national bestseller "The Slight Edge" with Jeff Olson.

John has been creating careers since he was a teenager. At age 17, he and a few friends started their own high school in Orange, New Jersey (called Changes, Inc. -- you can read about it in his book, "The Zen of MLM"). Before turning to business and journalism, he forged a successful career as a concert cellist and prize-winning composer. At 15 he was recipient of the 1969 BMI Awards to Student Composers and several New Jersey State grants for composition; his musical compositions were performed throughout the U.S. and his musical score for Aeschylus' "Prometheus Bound" (written at age 13) was performed at the amphitheater in Delphi, Greece, where the play was originally premiered.

His diverse career has made him a thought leader in several different industries. In 1986 John founded and wrote for Solstice, a journal on health, nutrition and environmental issues; his series on the climate crisis (yes, he was writing about this back in the eighties) was selected for reprint in Utne Reader. In 1992 John edited and produced the underground bestseller "The Greatest Networker in the World" by John Milton Fogg, which became the defining book in its field and sold over one million copies in eight languages. During the 1990s, John built a multimillion-dollar sales/distribution organization of over 100,000 people. He was cofounder and senior editor of the legendary journal Upline and editor in chief of Network Marketing Lifestyles and Networking Times.

He is married to Ana Gabriel Mann and considers himself the luckiest mann in the world. You can visit him at www.johndavidmann.com.

Funny Side Up is an absolute delight to read. It not only chronicles Rita Davenport's amazing life, but the reader also understands the life experiences that shaped her into the extraordinary woman she is. A theme that runs through the book is one of compassion and being the best you can possibly be. She 'walks the talk' and along the way, impacts and changes so many lives. Her philosophies are ones which, should we choose to follow, makes us not only better human beings but better friends, leaders, husbands, wives or partners. As well as being very funny and a thoroughly enjoyable read, the book is a must for anyone who leads people, wants to improve themselves and wants a simple recipe as to how to make that happen.

While not necessarily earth shattering, Rita has a great way of expressing herself using humor to carry off weighty points. She has had a difficult and twisty-turny life that has directed her into her "soul purpose" (as evidenced by the ease of her success). Definitely an entertaining read with positive energy and some excellent points to take away.

Rita Davenport is not only funny, she is a world class leader. Funny Side Up is a must read and a must reread in those times you might not have the belief she has in you.
As Rita would say "Prepare for Impact"
