Amy Newmark shares what she’s learned from editing and writing more than 100 Chicken Soup for the Soul books. This irreverent and insightful look at the human experience provides a road map to a happy, productive life.

The perfect self-help book for people who would never buy a self-help book — from the woman who admits she would be a terrible shrink!

Recovering cynic Amy Newmark was a crusader for truth on Wall Street, exposing companies that were defrauding investors, but the main emotions she wrote about were fear and greed. Now, as author and editor-in-chief of Chicken Soup for the Soul, she covers the whole range of human emotions and finds herself a much more positive and productive person.

Amy’s journey from Wall Street to Main Street has changed her in ways she never anticipated. Still a maverick, with a dry wit and a penchant for self-deprecating stories about herself and her family, she combines the matter-of-fact approach of a financial analyst with the insights she has gained from tens of thousands of Chicken Soup for the Soul stories.

A keen observer on parenting, love and marriage, positive thinking, and work/life balance, she shares her wisdom, her humor, and her advice in this book, filled with real-life stories and no-nonsense, practical tips that readers can actually implement to improve their own lives.

You will learn:

How to put things in perspective by realizing that you’re not alone so that you can move forward

How to run your life like a successful business… looking at things objectively so you can make better choices 

How to say no to what’s not important, so that you can say yes to what really matters

That things don’t have to be perfect, allowing you to accomplish more and enjoy the process

How to not take things personally and not get weighed down by someone else’s issues… whether it’s a grumpy stranger or your teenager

That you already have all the tools you to need to improve your life… and how to use them

How to be your best self by listening to your gut and standing up for what you believe—Amy’s motto in business has always been “don’t do anything you wouldn’t want in a letter to shareholders”… or written up in the press!
