'This book will grab you from the first page and keep you riveted through the end. Sherwood has chosen a viscerally compelling topic and written it brilliantly. Oh sure, THE SURVIVORS CLUB could save your life--but what matters more to me is that it's a wonderful read, the kind that makes whatever life you're living feel that much more worthwhile.' - Martha Beck, columnist for O, The Oprah MagazineAbout the Author:
