About the Book

In December of 2011, I gave a talk to an audience of scientists, Pentagon officials, politicians, and CEOs on the secret of life and how I'd figured it out the previous summer. Afterwards, people came up individually and told me how much what I'd shared meant to them. This book is based on the truth I spoke about. It's something I learned from within myself, something I believed saved me. And more than that, the way I set about to do it. This is a collection of thoughts on what I learned, what worked, what didn't. Where I succeed and importantly, where I fail daily. The truth is to love yourself with the same intensity you would use to pull yourself up if you were hanging off a cliff with your fingers. As if your life depended upon it. Once you get going, it's not hard to do. Just takes commitment and I'll share how I did it. It's been transformative for me. I know it will be transformative for you as well.

About the Author

I've been fortunate enough to have some amazing experiences in my life so far. I've trekked to one of the highest base camps in the Himalayas, meditated with Tibetan monks in the Dalai Lama's monastery, earned my US Army Infantry patch, walked 550 miles across Spain, lived in Paris, been the only non-black, non-woman member of the Black Women's writers' group, written a novel, held the hands of dying patients, and worked with some of the best people in Silicon Valley. But the most transformative experience has been the simple act of loving myself.

About the Reviews

I am a family therapist and have many clients struggling with depression, low self-esteem, and addiction. I read this book yesterday and just ordered 6 more to give to clients. I love teaching empowerment to folks and this is a great tool. Thank you Kamal!

*********************************

What a great book, worth a read. Its simple, really easy to read to the point,worth the money the only thing I wish they could change the front cover somehow less suicidal that was one of the reasons it put me off buying it but samething was telling me to buyit and I'm glad I did.

*********************************

This book fell into my life right when I needed it. So the magic was already at work. Actually, I resisted it for awhile after hearing about it from James Altucher - who I absolutely adore. Love his writing, his honesty, just his whole style of naked honesty. I was having a hard time, a really hard time and then yesterday I believe I allowed myself to hit bottom. I lost the fear and just fell. Then I had sort of accidentally checked out Kamal's (Amit?) book called "Rebirth, A Fable of Love, Forgiveness, and Following Your Heart," and much to my great surprise it was about his pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago. I've been wanting to do that for years - but have been too sick to do it. Well, I got my liver transplant last year and have been building what I call my Tea Cup List (to hell with ugly buckets). And it's on there. The next natural move was to go over to Amazon and buy the Kindle version. I could barely sleep last night I was so excited about reading it and how I could see it was already changing my life. Thank you, Kamal Ravikant. You totally rock. I love myself and I love you. <3
