Product Description

When Regina Brett turned 50, she wrote a column on the 50 lessons life had taught her. She reflected on all she had learned through becoming a single parent, looking for love in all the wrong places, working on her relationship with God, battling cancer and making peace with a difficult childhood. It became one of the most popular columns ever published in the newspaper, and since then the 50 lessons have been emailed to hundreds of thousands of people. Brett now takes the 50 lessons and expounds on them in essays that are deeply personal. From "Don't take yourself too seriously-Nobody else does" to "Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift," these lessons will strike a chord with anyone who has ever gone through tough times--and haven't we all?

Author Bio

Regina Brett has been a newspaper columnist for fourteen years, eight of them for Cleveland's Plain Dealer, where she was a finalist in 2008 and 2009 for the Pulitzer Prize in Commentary. She also hosts a call-in talk show once a week on WCPN, the Cleveland NPR affiliate, and speaks regularly to companies and not-for-profit organizations.

Publisher's Weekly

On turning 50, Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Brett wrote her most popular piece ever, containing the cancer survivor and single mom's most important life lessons. Here she expands and expounds on that column, incorporating other essays penned over her 14 years as an opinion columnist, to make a rousing inspirational collection. Most of her pieces-dedicated to substantive but familiar ideas like "Overprepare, then go with the flow," "Stay put in the day you are in," and "God loves you because of who God is"-are short, sweet, and frequently resonant (if at times overly simple). Complimenting her own experience with anecdotes from friends and others, as well as poems, prayers, psalms and excerpts from treasured books, Brett employs a veteran writer's knack for keen observation and thorough self-knowledge, delivering hard-earned wisdom with deceptive ease.

Editorial Reviews

"Regina Brett's book, God Never Blinks, provides practical insights that can change the world."

--Deepak Chopra, Author, The Ultimate Happiness Prescription
"Regina Brett is a gifted observer of the experiences that shape who we are, and her lessons unfold with buoyancy, humor and a courageous honesty. She has given us a beautifully written roadmap for life."

-- Jeffrey Zaslow, coauthor of The Last Lecture
"I intend to give my 82-year-old dad a copy of God Never Blinks. I will also buy one for a 16-year-old friend. This wise, compassionate and honest book is a blueprint for living a happy, fulfilling life. Its lessons are timeless--and timely."

--Thrity Umrigar, author of The Space Between Us

    This book is very well written. Not only does Regina Brett talk about each lesson in detail, but she gives examples from her own life to help explain the meaning. All 50 lessons are truly legit and can really help one make peace with whatever it is that may be inhibiting him/her from living life to the fullest. The book makes a great gift to anyone for any occasion or even no occasion at all. The way I see it, "God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life's Little Detours" is second only to the Bible for being the best book ever written.

    This book is one of the best I've ever read and I had a hard time putting it down!! Regina Brett's candid account of her own issues (as well as those of others) and lessons learned is refreshing and inspirational. Her positive outlook on life's challenges is uplifting and contagious! I've purchased several copies and shared them with friends. It makes a good college graduation gift as well.

    I was familiar with Regina Brett's 45 Lessons, and wasn't sure how they would translate into a book. I was a little reluctant, but the book was an enjoyable easy read filled with real life wisdom. A book I don't regret buying. If you're reluctant too here's a video of Regina reading a bit from the book, this is what sold me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8A7pNRSECNk
