She's one of the most beloved political figures in the country, and on the surface, seems to have led a charmed life. In many ways, she has. Beautiful family. Thriving career. Supportive friendship. Loving marriage. But she's no stranger to adversity. Many know of the strength she had shown after her son, Wade, was killed in a freak car accident when he was only sixteen years old. She would exhibit this remarkable grace and courage again when the very private matter of her husband's infidelity became public fodder. And her own life has been on the line. Days before the 2004 presidential election—when her husband John was running for vice president—she was diagnosed with breast cancer. After rounds of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation the cancer went away—only to reoccur in 2007.



  • I was absolutely amazed by the extent of Eric's philosophical knowledge. This book is a must-read for every teenager between 16 and 19, as well as anyone interested in philosophy. Towards the end, the book briefly delves into religion, which I found unnecessary and somewhat confusing. It seemed contradictory after Eric had just emphasized the greatness of the scientific method and the importance of conducting our own research and questioning what we're told, rather than blindly accepting unproven claims or historical hearsay (like the Bible). However, it's important to note that Eric does not attempt to convert readers to his religion, which I greatly appreciate. Personally, I believe the book would have been just as good, if not slightly better, without the inclusion of religious content. Overall, Eric's narration and writing are excellent. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in life lessons and philosophy in general.
  • Finishing this book was a real challenge, almost like going through the intense seal training the author recounts. The information is valuable, but it becomes tedious and repetitive due to the constant use of lists. The monotonous and repetitive cadence of the narrator only added to my wish for the book to end. It was irritating how his tone consistently rose in the middle of each sentence or at every comma. Super annoying.
  • This book was so sad that I found it hard to listen to. Elizabeth Edwards seems to be a strong woman and has had lots of heartache in her life. I was hoping for something more uplifting because she also has many things to be thankful for. I loved her poetry.
  • Great read! It was interesting, raw, sad, and beautifully written. I never knew Elizabeth Edwards before her husband was plastered all over the TV for his affair and this book really touched me and made me see Mrs. Edwards as an individual--- and a profound and wise one at that.
  • I loved this book!!!!!!! It was so genuine and interesting. I didn't find it too sad. For me, it was comforting, facsinating and relatable. It is not that I went through the same exact things as Elizabeth Edwards but I could see myself feeling how she felt if I had. It was a beautifully written and honest look into the life of Elizabeth Edwards that I found so relatable even though I am not from the same party and I didn't go through any of the same hardships. I really, really enjoyed this short memoir. If you have ever lost a child or gone through something very unexpected like the betrayal of a loved one I think this book may really be comforting to you. I didn't go through any of that and it was still relatable and comforting to me. It was just a good and well written book about a hard time in a woman's life who seemed to have everything going for her before life changed course in painful ways that couldn't be controlled or reversed--- something we can all relate to.
