Book Description

Radio and television host Glenn Beck has experienced the rollercoaster of life like few others. From the suicide of his mother when he was just thirteen, to his eventual alcoholism, depression, divorce, unemployment, and health scares—Glenn has weathered life’s darkest storms.

Any one of those struggles could’ve ruined him, yet Glenn was able to keep moving forward. He saw past the darkness into the light; past his grief and addictions and into what his life could be.

The process of finding happiness through personal redemption was not easy, but it left Glenn with a blueprint for how to confront future adversity. Glenn is living proof that these steps—he calls them wonders—don’t just work on paper. They helped transform his life and can they can help to transform yours as well.

Glenn Beck and Dr. Keith Ablow—two of the most popular and influential personalities in American media today—have joined forces to present a powerful guide to personal transformation and fulfillment that is as unique as their own unlikely partnership. They are called the “7 Wonders” and they can be used by anyone who has made the decision that they are ready to change their life.

After the television talk show host and the bestselling psychiatrist struck up a fast friendship they realized that their experiences with life’s struggles were complementary. What Keith had studied, Glenn had lived. What Keith had counseled patients on for years, Glenn had suffered through for decades.

The deeply personal insights they shared brought them to realize that their life stories had seven key principles in common; seven wonders that seemed to be essential ingredients for anyone attempting to transform their life.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is exactly what I have been searching for. January 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I ordered this for my Kindle less than 48 hours ago, and I couldn't put it down. It is exactly what I have been looking for. There are some people who just instinctively know how to act and what to do in this life to realize their potential. There are others, like me, who have been through truly painful experiences that continue to hold us back. I have been searching for a way to analyze events, relationships, etc., in a manner that would help me figure out what direction to go in. It has all been at my fingertips, but I just didn't know how to put it all together. This book is life altering for me. EVERYTHING clicked for me as I read it. It was a joy to read. I know exactly where to start and how to move forward now. It connected all of the dots in my thoughts. It is brilliant, truly brilliant. Every word of it rang true for me. I don't know how these two men were able to word it so beautifully and concisely, but they did it. It all makes sense and it will change the world if we let it. The friendship part really gave me the insight I craved regarding my relationships. I didn't know how to figure out what was going wrong with my friendships and why I felt so uncomfortable around some people. I get it now. I wish I could shout from the rooftops to everyone I love...."Go buy this book immediately and read every word!"

4.0 out of 5 stars A must read for anyone who has hit rock bottom January 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bought for Kindle PC and could not quit reading it. I thank God Glenn is so transparent and Keith is able to define each element with such clarity. The combination spoke to my soul and freed myself from the sins of my past. It's good to know I'm not alone. I feel one step closer - and eager to move on and live life to my potential for myself, my family, my friends and my God. Thank you Glenn & Keith.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just cracked it open... January 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
So, I only bought the book last night and read through about 100 pages before I could stop. If you are looking for an uplifting book that is MOSTLY apolitical, this is a great read. If you are looking for a scripture treatise, this is not it, however, you will find nothing in here that is contradictory to any of the mainstream Christian faiths. Instead, the authors draw wisdom from many sources and faiths. Life changer? Maybe. Honest? Yes. Encouraging? Absolutely! I'll finish it up this weekend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars! January 4, 2011
By V. Apo
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Excellent book! Excellent family values! Something to read and discuss with your children especially preteens who are so vulnerable to peer pressure and heading down the path of rebellion. Teach them how to think for themselves and the other options available for them other than following the crowd. How to have self-value which will give them a brighter future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Surprised January 16, 2011
Truth - I have not finished this book, but I am overwhelmed by the truth (there is that word again) of Glenn and Keith's writings. I, too, have found these principles to be authentic and undeniable. In some ways, these 7 principles are simple yet we, in our humanness, make so complex...a paradox of our own making.
I wanted to write this review because I was 'blown away' by the statements and examples that resonate also in my life.

Am not reading this quickly, because I want to digest and absorb it very well. It is NOT boring and quite remarkable how the human spirit can change is such wondrous ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good January 7, 2011
Candidly written. Great insights. Will be helpful to many; not everyone. Five stars for content, readability, concision, and transparency many of us would do well to emulate.

Btw... what's going on with all the 1 star ratings of this book based on problems with the Kindle? That's weird. Probably just a random mistake, I suppose. After all, Beck's critics believe intentional misleading / dishonesty are wrong, right?

I'm reading the book now, and I am finding it very helpful. The book concentrates on Glenn Beck as an ordinary man, who has experienced his share of life's burdens. He talks candidly and openly about how he lost everything, learns WHY he lost everything and managed to find a way out, and into a... Read More
