Determination and drive were critical to the success of Telemundo/NBC talk show host Arranas, the secrets to which she shares in this empowering self-help memoir. Offering breezy but sincere advice rooted in her own challenges, including a dictatorial father and two broken marriages of her own. Her first, foundational lesson is independence: "Love shouldn't be the sole master of your destiny." Arranas insists that women must always be able to take care of themselves financially, preserve their integrity and avoid mediocrity while sharing the personal stories that brought her to the conclusion-including a cheating husband and a personal assistant who stole thousands of dollars from her. Her methods for coping, learning and moving on are her most important lessons, warning readers that "ignorance is not bliss but rather a brutal teacher." Advice aside, this celebrity memoir is obviously aimed at an audience already familiar with her TV persona, and makes an entertaining, if light, read.
