This book is for those that would like to live in joy and peace, are facing a banana peel field (illness, loss of a loved one, money problems, or a failing relationship), are serious about changing their life, or need to figure out how to be positive instead of negative. Part memoir and part self-help, this guide draws inspiration from the author's cancer survival story, which is told in an inimitable and straight-talking way, and her GAAB (Going Above And Beyond) Life 21-Day Challenge. The rainbow is at the end of the journey that begins today.


"[Katharine C. Giovanni's] account of the journey from her familial banana peel field through the unimaginable diagnosis of breast cancer is an inspiring roadmap that gives all of us the tools to survive."  —Jackie Farley, C.E.O., Wise Women Incorporated

"Giovanni models fearlessness in the face of adversity with such powerful energy, one can only have belief that anything is possible. With compassion and humor, Giovanni provides knowledge and skills to realize that we, too, can become unstoppable. An utterly inspiring book!"  —Debbie Leoni, professional speaker
