   I understood this book to be over trauma and mental health issues
The book was originally aired on ABC's "This Week." In "The Power of One: What They Do to Women," Elizabeth Warren reveals her personal experiences of what they do to women, and options to prevent them. While this information is very important, at my age that's not a subject that pertains to me. So I'm going to give it to the local library and hope it can help others, too.
Selling secrets is a lucrative business. I did not find this to be helpful advice on mental health, but rather a story about her secret life. I will never feel the same about her, because I know everything I really didn't need to know.
   honest & brave
Too many girls go into women hood still taking their childhood trauma with them and showing the progression to mental illness. She normalizes mental illness through letting us talk about it. It's just that mental illness is something to work through, just like saying no to another cookie. The actress uses the tools she has learned through therapy to regain her balance and make up for lost time. She shows that mental illness is just one part of the person, but that there is so much more to the person. Thanks for the donation, Ginger. One of the Ohio women who survived rape, abortion and work in progress is now speaking out.
   Not What I Thought It Would Be
Ms. Daschle's honesty was appreciated, but the meteorology parts were boring. Also, I wish she didn't jump around so much, it makes it more difficult to follow and less interesting. I'm not even halfway through the book. I'm hoping she goes into more depth about her experiences at the psych hospital, what they said to help her, etc. I'm hoping this book will evolve into details that explained what specifically helped her heal, Dr. Goin said.
   Ginger Zee book
It's a sad book, to think she had so much adversity in her life as beautiful and smart as she is. I wish the book would have been written more chronologically, so we could have had more time to reflect on the lives of the characters.
   Well written with a great message that I really felt
I'm delighted the book was so well received, Graham said. I've watched her on GMA for years and had no idea of her struggles. I feel closer to her but also am appreciative of sharing such personal experiences with us, Bruno said. Like her, I hope her message gets out and others with depression or suicide ideation or attempts get the help they need without shame or guilt. Great read, said Dr. Chester Floyd, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
   Amazingly Honest
I've been a fan of Ginger Zee, the meteorologist, but after reading this book, I'm an even bigger fan of Ginger as a person. As someone who has also battled depression, suicidal ideation and my own mental health struggles, reading her words helped me better understand the power of coping with my depression and the things I can do to help heal as I grow older.
