Format: Paperback
Live a Life You Love is a very personal book by Dr. Susan Biali. In it she talks about how she changed her own life. While working as a doctor, she liked helping people, but felt harried and oddly dissatisfied. Surprising those who knew her, she decided to leave the medical profession and pursue her passion to become a writer--and a flamenco dancer!

In the book she encourages us to think about changing our lives as well. She asks us if we are truly happy in our jobs, in our relationships, with our lives. She talks about the importance of nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. In a clear and simple way, she outlines seven steps to follow in sections titled:

* Allow Yourself to be You
* Learn to Love Yourself
* Honor Your Body
* Rescue and Revitalize Your Relationships
* Get a Life!
* Make Room for the Divine
* Make "Someday" Today

The author presents many ideas in this book, in an easy-to-read format. Even if you're not contemplating changing careers or making other major changes, Live a Life You Love has valuable ideas for making smaller but important changes. I found it interesting and inspiring.

Susan's book has lifted me up after a physically and emotionally exhausting week. I picked it up and couldn't put it down. It felt like Susan was sitting right next to me, reminding me of all the things that truly matter in life. In every area that I've been neglecting or having a hard time with, she was right there with helpful stories and gentle reminders about how to turn things around.

This book is straightforward, relatable, fun to read, engaging, practical, inspiring and above all - helpful!

From the last chapter: "Under all the stress, fear, failures, and wrong choices you might have made in your life, you know who you really are, and how you're meant to live. I hope I've successfully reminded you of how totally original you are, how worthy of love you are, how brilliant and wonderful your body is, and what you you need to thrive."

Susan achieves her mission with flying colors in this book. She is vulnerable, relatable and wise, and I recommend it highly to anyone looking to re-connect with what is most important in life.

Sometimes you read self help books that are more like cookie cutter recipes, but I found this book inspirational and not really like a step by step plan. Her personal stories are fun to read and some times hard to believe, but helps you understand why it is a good idea to follow your personal desires and dreams.

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."

"The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost

Some personal journeys are too incredible to be anything, but non-fiction. Susan Biali, M.D.'s story is one of those too fantastic to believe if it wasn't true genre. Halfway through an Emergency Medicine residency, with $100,000 in medical school loans, and suicidal, Dr. Biali had an epiphany: to quit the residency and take up dancing (dancing was her dream career as a child). Along the way, the Canadian born author moved to Mexico, performed the flamenco on stage before Sean Penn, married a fellow dancer, became a published writer and a noted speech-maker. Needless to say this took a lot of courage! As Biali confesses, "All I had was a little bit of talent, a lot of passion, a big dream and piles of faith."

In Live a Life You Love, Biali shares the keys to finding personal fulfillment even if it leads to an unconventional path. Much of the information -- finding your passion; self-love; healing yourself; trusting in a higher power -- is not new (at least not to any reader well versed in the self help genre). That is not to say that this information is not well-packaged because it is. The writing is both entertaining and informative.

Still what is new and what drew me into Live a Life You Love is the author's highly inspirational tale! I really admired the choices Biali made. And this admiration gave her writing more credence than many tomes preaching motivation with cliches that provide little inspiration.

Live a Life You Love is worth reading for Biali's personal story alone!

The book is full of insight and inspiration, but I prefer 48 Days to the Work You Love because of it's much greater emphasis on actual pragmatic steps you can take to reach your goals. It is interesting to hear a doctor's take on this though, and the medical connection to these ideas provides some food for thought.
