September 2011 Non-Fiction Book of the Month.

Already an internet phenomenon, and destined to be the 'little book that could...' this collection of light-hearted yet landmark insights will make you see the possibilities in your life in a whole new way.

Synopsis

Life's Little Detours : 50 Lessons to Find and Hold onto Happiness by Regina Brett

'You can get through anything life hands you if you stay put in the day you are in and don't jump ahead.' When Regina Brett turned fifty, she wrote a column on the fifty lessons life had taught her. She reflected on everything she had learned through becoming a single parent, looking for love in the wrong places, battling cancer and making peace with a difficult childhood. Here, in the tradition of THE LAST LECTURE, TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, SIMPLE ABUNDANCE and DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF, Regina takes her fifty lessons and explores them in short essays that are deeply personal. From 'Don't take yourself too seriously - nobody else does' to 'Life isn't tied up with a bow, but it's still a gift', her warm and wise words will strike a chord with anyone who needs a little help to get back on track and feel good about life.
