From the Back Cover:

"Take It from Me brings us the greatest of Erin Brockovich's accomplishments in the lesson that no one starts at the top, and we all have to find the power inside to create lasting change and empowering results."--Anthony Robbins, Author of Awaken the Giant Within and Unlimited Power

Thanks to the Oscar-winning movie, "Erin Brockovich" is a household name. But before the money, the movie, and the fame, there was simply Erin Brockovich. Every fairy tale has its villains, heroes, and lessons to be learned, and Erin's story is no different. But unlike most fairy tales, Erin's story is too good not to be true. In Take It From Me, Erin shares her most personal challenges, and shows how anyone no matter how down and out can call on the inner strength that lies within us all to achieve success.

In a battle that climaxed with an astounding quarter billion dollar settlement, the drama that led up to Erin's victory was one that began when Erin was a little girl suffering from dyslexia, shyness, difficulties at school, and a taste for the wild side of life. The journey she took from Kansas to California led her down a road of self-realization, self-improvement, and self-empowerment. Drawing on the moral fiber of her heartland childhood, her inner strength (often her only resource) helped her beat overwhelming odds and overcome painful obstacles such as dead-end jobs, dead-end relationships, and loneliness. She shares her achievements and continuing struggles with life's adversities to offer readers valuable lessons for reaching their full potential no matter how dire the circumstances. Refreshing and inspiring Take It From Me illuminates a path to empowerment, self-satisfaction, and happiness anyone can follow.
