About the Author
Top customer reviews
First, it's handwritten in a colorful fashion for print. You can feel SARK's intentions in her writing.
Second, this book has helped me to find a new range of emotions. It will help you sift through the negative and positive feelings that you have.
You can read this book straight through or use the table of contents in the beginning and go straight to the issue at hand.
3rd, there are activities that will help put what you have read into action. It's a hands-on approach to healing.
No matter where you are in your life or what you are facing, there is something to help you within the pages. So sit down and meander as you will. What you need will find you.
This time around I found Sark's deeply personal sharing over the breakup of a relationship and the loss of her mother and a beloved pet, to be incredibly helpful. Few people are as open and honest about ALL the feelings and stuff we go through. What I love best about Sark is that she doesn't pretend stuff isn't happening or pretend everything is perfect, she embraces it all, goes INTO it and emerges with new wisdom and new ways for us to change our "relationship" to our issues and feelings.
Unlike other books on similar topics, you don't feel judged or foolish for not being able to quickly adopt change or instantly "get" and embrace some of the thoughts and ideas. Sark is REAL and that's part of what makes you listen and learn. Because if she can feel as bad as she does at times, and yet come out of it and find the blessings, so, too, can we.
The book was very inspiring and this time around, I immediately started doing some of the "work." Meanwhile, I filled up a notebook with my own notes and thoughts inspired by her various riffs.
Sark is funny, clever, soulful, entertaining, aware and real. There are many authors we like and would love to meet, but after all these years, I'd love to meet Sark in real life and have her as a real life friend.
Reading her books, it's almost as if she were there with you, in a way we wish all our best friends could but few can because honestly, Sark is also very clever.
I've now given this book as a gift to several people (of all ages) and most recently recommended to a young woman who is contemplating divorce.
"Glad no matter what" is a great title and a great challenge, but it's one that Sark makes us feel as if we can choose and live every day, no matter what.
Life is about change and loss and this may be one of the best and most accessible books to address the topic, in the way only Sark can.
Thank you, Sark.
Just one heads up: If you have only recently lost a loved one, you may not be quite ready to read certain portions of the book. But they are the words you'll cherish when it's time.
SARK's books chronicle her life. They emerge in color and with strategies to help her readers deal with various aspects of life that we all hold in common. Whether the topic is being organized, or becoming prosperous, or becoming a writer or being a better friend, she has important and creative and "doable" messages for us.
This book came out of a time in her life when a relationship that she valued highly had come to an end. Susan shared with us that always-present "other side of the coin."
Thank you SARK!
