Take 2

Your Guide to Creating Happy Endings and New Beginnings

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


If life is an epic saga, who’s in charge of your narrative? Is the plot unfolding as you imagined? Whether you find yourself trudging along in boredom or caught up in a chaotic whirlwind of overcommitment, you can still take creative control and call for Take 2.

This is a book about rebooting your life at any point. It’s about starting over; taking inventory; and getting smarter, stronger, and sexier with no apologies, no regrets, and no turning back.

I took control of my journey while in the glare of the spotlight. Now I’m sharing the life lessons from my “grits to glitz” path as a wife and mother, caregiver, businesswoman, television personality, product mogul, kisser of boo-boos, and encourager of dreams. Of course I have many more roles, just as you do, but I want to approach them all in the same way: fearlessly and without limits. I’ll hold up the mirror so that you can see who you really are – including all the dramatic plot twists and turns that can make this your most fulfilling adventure ever.

This is your life, and you’re about to set out on the path to your second take by reclaiming your power, owning who you are, and loving it!

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 18, 2013 – TV personality Gibbons takes a misguided stab at the lucrative self-help genre with this unfocused hodge-podge of clich d, obvious, and recycled advice. The book is unquestionably geared towards women (and includes a long chapter of hair and makeup tips, some of which flog Gibbons's own makeup line, "Sheer Cover"), particularly, it seems, to tired, over-committed housewives, who, she urges, should more frequently say "no" (whether on business trips or at school bake sales). There is nothing wrong with any of the lessons that Gibbons imparts they all trend towards self-empowerment but her tips cover so much ground that they lose any power they may have had. She suggests things as disparate as admiring local architecture, humming, relaxing with elderly friends, and eating microwaveable tomato soup. A lot of the rhetoric sounds familiar: "give yourself permission," "look for role models," "declare your value," drink water, etc. The final product is more a collection of bullet points than a book, and it may be difficult for readers to extract any helpful advice from these pages.
