about the book

Standing Strong Brings Inspirational Insights to a List of Life Lessons. The author divides this book into two parts--her accident and recovery and, in part two, the life lessons she learned and shares from her experiences. This book has all of the heartfelt, intimate details of a life-changing memoir and an inspiring self-help guide. The author shares her thoughts and perspectives as she faced the accident that changed her life and the aftermath of recovery. Then, she shares how her changed views led her to reform and refocus some rather typical life lessons that you may have read tons of times in other motivational self-help books. 


Standing Strong Is a Must Read for Those Facing Adversity and Challenges. The author's accident gave her a unique, forced opportunity to pursue life and her future from a new and different perspective. The insights she offers readers come from a unique place--but are based on years of reflection and realizations, and ideas that are perfectly relatable to every reader seeking to move on from adversity. As the author provides her life lessons, she uses pieces of her past experiences to help the reader understand the lesson in a valuable and relatable way.


Would I recommend Standing Strong by Tina Brandau? I loved this book. It is written in a personal, relatable tone like a memoir--but is well organized and well structured for use as a motivational self-help guide as well. No, there aren't new, Earth-shattering life lessons introduced. She covers values and goals and saying no and accountability, etc. However, the author certainly shares her unique perspectives and ideas as she discusses life lessons. She shares how she processed them and propelled from them--and approaches them in terms that make them usable and valuable for the reader facing obstacles as well. If you are seeking a motivational, inspirational self-help book that is useful, easy to understand, and loaded with some unique personal perspectives--this book needs to be on your reading list.
