This Day: Diaries from American Women

"Intensely entertaining. This Day is as addictive as any reality TV show but with one real difference. The book lures you in with its amazingly candid details of women's lives, but it also leaves you feeling truly inspired. I highly recommend this book."
— Ben Pappas, Us Weekly magazine

"This Day is like a reality show that doesn't require a television—it lets you peek into the intimate details of other women's lives, from the mundane to the awe-inspiring. I picked out a random story to start, and found myself hooked, turning page after page. I wanted to talk to each of these fascinating women.!"
— Kim Gandy, president of the National Organization for Women

Reviews & News
"This book is better than reality television because no one gets voted off the island and everyone deserves to be cheered on." Nashville Scene

"Water Cooler Diaries is one of those books that you start reading and can’t stop. Each of the diaries is short; most are just a few pages. They’re not candy-coated, but they’re not filled with “I hate my job" cries, either.  Some are funny. Others will break your heart in two.” TriCities.com
