So has anyone caught the many interviews that Elizabeth Edwards has made regarding her new book "Resilience: Reflections on the Burdens and Gifts of Facing Life's Adversities"? Generally I stick my reading to short stories or magazines due to time but OMG I'm getting this book. Wooo she dishes the dirt.

Here is just part of the interview she did with Oprah

I do feel bad for her since she is dying of cancer but geez this book looks harsh. I honestly feel for the kids because in the end they are her legacy and well nothing like leaving this world scorned. Today on the "Today Show" Matt Laurer interviewed her. He asked her if revenge is a dish best served in public - she giggled and said yes she agrees with that statement. I know that she is in a catch 22 since she is on her death bed really - do you leave a man when you really need him most?

Here is her full interview with Matt Laurer

So is anyone else curious to see what she has to say? I'm going to try and pick the book up this weekend. So anyone one else curious to read the book? What are you thoughts on the book?

Re: Resilience

SO I bought the book the day after I wrote the above message but I didn't read right away. I kinda let the book sit there on my bedroom nightstand. I dunno why but I got into the do I really want to read it mentality. Well last week I picked it up and slowly I started to read it and yesterday I finished it while in the Dr's waiting rooms.

I was thinking the book was going to be filled with hate about how her husband cheated on her as she was fighting stage 4 breast cancer and how he (possibly) fathered a child. The book was so much different then I thought. It really was about her life story. She talked alot about their son Wade's death and how she grieved for him. It was a great book. It really made you stop and think how short life could be and how you really need to take each day as a precious gift. She did talk about what her husband did but it was a brief chat. It wasn't the bashing book I though it would be but more inspirational.

It was a great read and a book I would recommend Smile
