Product description


[Roberts] offers readers a deeply intimate and endearing glimpse into the human side of battling illness.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

As a sports broadcaster and Good Morning America anchor, Robin Roberts has been in the public eye for more than thirty years. She has covered the devastation of Hurricane Katrina on her hometown; interviewed Miley Cyrus as a guest star on Hannah Montana; and been inducted in the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame; but perhaps nothing she did touched the public more than the candor she displayed when speaking about her mother's death and her own rare blood disorder. In a sense, her late mother presides over this book, one of her habitual comments serving as its title. As always, Roberts' reflections on her experiences are never exercises in self-pity; rather, they serve as examples of problems that we all have.

-- "Barnes & Noble, editorial review"

Roberts is both astonishingly honest and refreshingly upbeat as she recounts the shock of discovering she once again had to fight for her life...Delivered with candor and optimism, Everybody's Got Something is a remarkable book that offers a blueprint for handling crises with grace and faith.

-- "BookPage"

Roberts offers an inspiring memoir of her life, from her home base in Mississippi to her home in New York and the glamorous though grueling life of a television reporter...With the infectious personality for which she's known, Roberts details the support of family and friends and the people she's met in her life and career who've inspired her by overcoming their own challenges with the 'something' that everybody inevitably faces. Inspiring.

-- "Booklist"

This follow-up to TV news anchor Roberts's previous audiobooks offers personal growth principles abstracted from her experiences...The assertiveness in her voice works well to express the determination she had to summon when facing a life-threatening disease that required a bone marrow transplant in 2012. Her fans will enjoy the chatty narratives about her celebrity life and medical travails that dominate this memoir. What everyone facing a health challenge will savor is how Roberts uses her grounding in Southern culture to remind us of the importance of gratitude, hope, and strong connections with family members.

-- "AudioFile"

With the assistance of Chambers, broadcaster Roberts chronicles her struggles with myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare condition that affects blood and bone marrow...Inspirational memoir about a journalist's battle with a grave disease she had to face while also dealing with her mother's passing.
