My Review :

On HLN’s news show Morning Express with Robin Meade, the anchor absolutely shines with confidence as she brings the news each morning. You would never guess that she was at one time frozen with fear and questioning her ability to do her job. With an inside look at some of the insanity in the news business, Robin tells her story of overcoming her doubts and fears.

Morning Sunshine is not a stuffy self-help book written by a psychologist delving into your brain. Instead it is a “Hey, sit down here friend and let’s talk about this” pep-talk book. She shares her experiences at work, some embarrassing moments, her upbringing, and many touching and personal stories. Especially helpful for me were her ideas on handling criticism. Each chapter has a Confidence Booster, The Takeaway (sort of the final thought of the chapter), and Robin’s Ramblings.

The book is a well written, warm, and interesting look at how we react to others, the pressures we put upon ourselves, and how it hinders us personally and professionally. I enjoyed the book and it makes me appreciate her television show and professionalism even more.



Last Chance = giveaway ends tonight at midnight. Winners will be drawn tomorrow and notified by email. Thank you to Hachette Book Group for allowing me to have this give away.



About the Author:
Millions of viewers each week tune into HLN morning show star Robin Meade and her show, Morning Express with Robin Meade, which airs weekdays from 6 am to 10 am. Her extraordinary, fun personality has attracted an enthusiastic following, including Stephen King, who devoted an entire Entertainment Weekly column to her.

..................................................................................................................................................


Morning Sunshine:
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.

5 copies of Robin Meade’s Morning Sunshine will be given away. Here are the “rules” :

1. USA or Canada only and no P.O. Boxes
.

2. Contest will run from Sept 7 – 23

  6. I would love to be entered for this book!

    I have awful insomnia and I used to stay overnight at the dog rescue that I worked at a while back. I always slept on their couch with the television on because I can't sleep if it is completely dark and quiet. I would wake every morning to Robin Meade's smiling face and it gave me an optimistic outlook for every day.

    Thanks for such a great giveaway!
