September’s Book: The Beautiful No by Sheri Salata

From Amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/Beautiful-No-Other-Transcendence-Transformation/dp/0062743198/ref=sr_1_1?crid=281SGKJ34ZD23&keywords=the+beautiful+no&qid=1560363076&s=gateway&sprefix=The+Beautiful+No%2Caps%2C181&sr=8-1

“Thursday morning. One hundred pounds overweight, no man in sight, and rounding the bend to 57 years old—a full-blown catastrophe.”

What happens when you realize you’ve had the career of your dreams, but you don’t have the life of your dreams? This was the stark reality facing Sheri Salata when she left her twenty-year stint at The Oprah Winfrey Show, Harpo Studios and the OWN network. She had dedicated decades to her dream job, and loved (almost) every minute of it, but had left the rest of her life gathering dust on the shelf.

After years of telling other people’s makeover stories, Sheri decided to “produce” her own life transformation. And this meant revisiting her past, excavating its lessons, and boldly reimagining her future. In these pages, she invites readers along for the ride—detoxing in the desert, braving humiliation at Hollywood’s favorite fitness studio, grappling with losses, reinventing friendships, baring her soul in sex therapy, and more. Part cautionary tale, part middle-of-life rallying cry, Sheri’s stories offer profound inspiration for personal renewal.

About our Book Club:  READ & RELAX. LEARN & LAUGH. SHARE & SOCIALIZE. Reading various self-help and wellness books on your own is definitely valuable, but exploring them with other health-minded folks can be AMAZING! We invite you to join us on the 2nd Monday of each month for this unique book club. Whether you are an avid reader or not, this group is for you! We started our book club to support great conversations about books that will make us think, dream, and grow! Join us to unwind and connect.

Please RSVP by calling the clinic directly at 612.823.0368 or finding the event on www.meetup.com or Ascent’s Facebook page.

An unforgettable memoir about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University

Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home.

“Beautiful and propulsive . . . Despite the singularity of [Tara Westover’s] childhood, the questions her book poses are universal: How much of ourselves should we give to those we love? And how much must we betray them to grow up?”—Vogue

“Westover has somehow managed not only to capture her unsurpassably exceptional upbringing, but to make her current situation seem not so exceptional at all, and resonant for many others.”—The New York Times Book Review
