What a Difference a Year Makes: How Life's Unexpected Setbacks Can Lead to Unexpected Joy
The next star of ABC's The Bachelor, and the funny guy who stole America's heart on The Bachelorette shares hard-earned advice and wisdom on how life's unexpected setbacks can lead to unexpected joy.
One Thanksgiving weekend Bob Guiney came home to find a white Post-it(tm) note from his wife informing him that she wanted a divorce. On top of his broken heart, he suffered a series of physical injuries, gained forty pounds, and fell into a deep depression. For the first time in his life, he found himself at rock bottom, unsure of how to pick up the pieces.
What a Difference a Year Makes looks, month-by-month, at a devastating year and the wise words and lessons drawn from uncles, aunts, parents, and his best friend: Grandma. "On paper," he writes, "I looked like a failure-no football career, no music career, and a divorce. But actually I'm doing better than I ever have in my life."
With the honesty and humor that have made Bob America's favorite bachelor, he explores the simple but valuable life lessons that helped him return to vitality and optimism. The result is a witty and warm book that will touch and inspire anyone who has ever suffered a broken heart.
