In this inspiring book, Katie Couric distills the ingenious, hard-won insights of such leaders and visionaries as Maya Angelou, Jimmy Carter, Michael J. Fox, and Ken Burns, who offer advice about life, success, and happiness—how to take chances, follow one’s passions, overcome adversity and inertia, commit to something greater than ourselves, and more. Along the way, Katie Couric reflects on her own life, and on the shared wisdom, and occasional missteps, that have guided her from her early days as a desk assistant at ABC to her groundbreaking work as a broadcast journalist. Moving and empowering, The Best Advice I Ever Got is for all of us, young or old, who want to hear from some of today’s best and brightest about how they got it right, got it wrong, and came out on top—so we can too.

Just a few words to say......the perky one is an absolute idiot
Have been struggling to find my purpose in life. But one thing I have taken from this book is do what your heart tells you and you will find true happiness. Such a simple concept but very hard task to complete. One thing for sure everyday vow to have a renewed spirit, don't be afraid to chances and do what your heart leads you to do. I believe that is what Katie is telling us to do. Great read! Highly recommend.
Never to old to get good advice
I enjoyed this book very much. The advice was very eye opening. I have told several of my friends about the book. I plan to read the book again, I want to pass the advice to my daughters and grandchildren. Thank you for writing this book. Norma
