Her daughter's estrangement, her husband's suicide, her show's cancellation...a while back, Rivers had a truly terrible year. Here she explains how she managed to survive.
Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.
Rivers may not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of someone to offer a friendly word when your life is in the toilet. But Rivers has been through plenty (as the cover copy states, "I've survived everything . . . and I mean everything . . . and you can, too!"). Besides the suicide of her husband, Rivers has lost her career--several times--and a bad investment cost her a multimillion-dollar jewelry business. But she has bounced back both in her professional and personal lives (her fianceis a billionaire), and though most of her readers aren't going to be bouncing that high, they may profit from her advice. Much of what she has to offer amounts to common sense, like asking friends for help, and some of it borders on cliche, like doing volunteer work to take your mind off your troubles, but River's chatty tone is honest and fresh, and she encourages people to listen to their own inner voices rather than those bombarding them from the outside. Certainly, her upbeat attitude gives hope. At the very least, expect patron requests when Rivers shows up on the talk-show circuit determined to lift viewers' spirits. Ilene Cooper

I would stack the last 10 minutes of this recording against ANY other self help book. I've read a good deal of self help books(leave me alone, its not weird, you've probably read more than you realize) and what I like about this is her way of keeping it simple. She gives you actual practical advice on how to rise up. Its like talking to an knowledgeable relative who expects a lot out of you and has no time for your excuses
