Because sometimes, life is going to suck, and you're going to have to know how to handle it Life never goes the way we expect it. No matter who you are, you will probably get cancer. Or someone you love will die. Or you'll get divorced. Or some other horrific thing will happen to you. It's a given. You're more likely to have chemotherapy after all, than live happily ever after.So how do you handle it, when your life starts to suck? When comedian and journalist Emma Markezic was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer, despite finding herself single, bald and halfway through chemo, she was the happiest she'd ever been. Learning she might be about to die, surprisingly and counter-intuitively, made her feel more alive than ever. When she wrote an article about how being diagnosed with breast cancer was the best thing that ever happened to her, and it became a viral media sensation and people started hugging her in the street, she knew she was onto something. An appealing, warm memoir-meets-self-help book, with a big helping of humour, The Bright Side is all about giving people help, hope and more than a few laughs along with a practical guide to training your brain to look on the bright side - because that's what's going to get you through, when everything else turns to shit.
