Award-winning journalist and anchor of the television
newsmagazine Inside Edition, Norville writes a
self-help book directed at women who have experienced a
crisis and are suffering from depression as a result.
The author's own crisis (being pilloried in the press
and publicly humiliated during her tenure as Today
show host and eventually forced to leave television with
her career in shambles) is the basis for this book. She
recounts how she was paralyzed by her depression and
haunted by feelings of self-criticism and inadequacy.
Her struggle to recover is also detailed, and she
provides a 10-point recovery plan for others to follow.
Her book also describes the personal experiences of
several other women who have had to overcome disasters
and get on with their lives. And while Norville's
crisis pales in comparison to what some of the other
women go through (such as rape and suicide), and in
spite of the fact that she slips some Christian dogma in
here and there, her book will be of interest to
self-help readers turning to her because of her

Editorial Review -The author, Deborah Norville , January 11, 2000
I wrote this book to help my 7 year old sleep peacefully!
There comes a period in every parent's life when bedtime is torture. Either your precious little one simply refuses to go to bed, he goes to bed but doesn't stay there ... or he goes to sleep and then spends much of the night waking YOU up with his nightmares. That was the situation at my home ... and while my son would drift back to sleep after I comforted him, I was wide awake. It was killing
me! I realized the nighttime "scaries"; were only happening on those weekend evenings when my child was allowed to watch TV (we have a no TV rule on school days). I also knew from experience that anything I might tell my 7 year old would go right past him -- for the message to stick, HE would have to make the discovery.
