Take 2: Your Guide to Creating Happy Endings and New Beginnings

Take 2: Your Guide to Creating Happy Endings and New Beginnings
Written by Leeza Gibbons

Book Description:

If life is an epic saga, who is writing 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 declare that it’s Your Life, Your Rules. This is a book about rebooting your story 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.

As Leeza Gibbons explains, "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, TV entertainment host, 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; knowing that it's the plot twists and turns in your story that makes it powerful.

This is your life, and you’re about to set out on the path to rewriting your story by reclaiming your power.

{Book Review} 

I just finished reading the book and I find that Leeza Gibbon's experiences and tips (and her beauty) are really quite an inspiration. I remember how I really wanted a change in my life and now some new things I want to change. This book is like a motivation guide for those who want to create a better change in their lives. It's just what I needed: a little boost and motivation. It's a great book and I enjoyed how she included some of her personal photos on the side.


Leeza Gibbons is one of the best-known and most well-loved pop-culture icons on the air and at the top of her game. As a wife, mother, and businesswoman, she has always shared her experiences with her audience. The spectrum of Leeza’s career in entertainment and news media—combined with her stunning hands-on advocacy for health care, wellness, and caregivers—is diverse and impressive. Her on-camera hosting dominance in entertainment-news and talk-show arenas ranges from the most popular entertainment news show in history, Entertainment Tonight; to her award-winning daytime talk show, Leeza; to, currently, the syndicated TV news magazine show America Now and the weekly TV news show My Generation on PBS. Recognized as a social entrepreneur, Leeza has become one of the leading voices for issues facing family caregivers. After her family’s experience with her mother’s and grandmother’s Alzheimer’s disease, Leeza took action. Her training as a journalist united with her compassion and business savvy when she created the Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation, a 501 (c)(3); and its signature programs, Leeza’s Place and Leeza’s Care Connection, which offer free services for family caregivers.
