Description (Publisher Website)
Robin Meade is the poster child for confidence and self-assurance. But the anchor of Morning Express with Robin Meade wasn't always that way. In fact, there was a period in her career when she was plagued with anxiety and panic attacks. In MORNING SUNSHINE, she tells how she overcame her fear of public speaking to go on and achieve her dream of becoming a news anchor.
Robin Meade offers her own tried-and-true four-step approach to building confidence. Her trademark warm, personal style translates from the screen to the page in this book, which will give readers even more insight into the young woman who came out of nowhere to become one of the most popular news anchors on television today.
Robin Meade is the anchor of HLN’s morning show, Morning Express with Robin Meade. Among other stories, Meade anchored the network’s coverage of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the January 2009 inauguration of President Barack Obama, and the July 2009 coverage of Michael Jackson’s memorial event. In July of 2008, she scored the exclusive first interview with freed American hostages – at their request – after their release from Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC) captors. In June of 2009, Meade performed a tandem skydive with President George Herbert Walker Bush in Kennebunkport, Maine, to commemorate President Bush’s 85th birthday. Meade is also the face of HLN’s “Salute to Troops” segment, a daily message to U.S. troops using photos and videos sent in by their loved ones. (Read More)
I'm a fan of HLN's Morning Express so I jumped at the chance to read Robin's book and review it. For anyone who doesn't watch the show, Robin makes everyone feel like they are her friend. She comes across as the kind of person you'd love to have for your BFF ;)
Her book is very much the same. In the process of talking about her bouts with panic attacks and insecurities ( hard to believe a former Miss Ohio has those!), she makes you feel like you're just friends sitting around talking. Robin's book is as chatty as she is in the mornings and as cheerful. This book was a wonderful pickme up.
Robin doesn't hold back in telling her story of how she conquered her fears and anxieties and even offers small tidbits entitled "What I learned" and "Confidence Boosters". I think what I liked best was that, much like talking to your friends Robin lays out the truth and doesn't sugar coat it.
Whether you're a fan of Robin's already, or even if you're not, I think most readers will enjoy the friendly way Robin approaches this sometimes serious topic.
