Dica de leituras rápidas: Maria Shriver

Foto: Times
Em 2008, quando me mudei para Montevidéu, passei um mês em casa, sem emprego, só terminando o meu relatório final de PIBIC. Em uma bela tarde, assistindo Oprah (gente, eu amo a Oprah. Pronto, falei), ela recomendou um livro da Maria Shriver, de quem sempre fui fã. Não tinham exemplares no Brasil nem no Uruguai, então comprei na Amazon "Just who will you be?". Era um livro bem pequeno, rápido de se ler, mas com um conteúdo fantástico. Eu recomendo a todas as Diplo Wifes que acabaram de sair para a primeira remoção. Ela tem outras obras bem interessantes e cutinhas, que você pode conhecer em: mariashriver.com/books .


"This slender inspirational book is a candid self-portrait of a woman in transition. A longtime NBC anchorwoman, Shriver was thrown into a tailspin when asked to resign after her husband, Arnold Schwarzenegger, was elected governor of California; she writes, My career was gone, and with it went the person I'd been for twenty-five years. With a combination of self-deprecation and chutzpah, Shriver describes herself as the consummate overachiever, a people-pleasing, legacy-carrying, perfection-seeking Good Girl, now realizing that asking ourselves not just what we want to be but who we want to be is important at every stage in our lives, not just when we're starting out in the world. That's because, in a way, we're starting out fresh in the world every single day. Reprinted in full in this book is the speech Shriver made at her nephew's high school graduation—a humorous meditation on fame, achievement and self-worth—that inspired the writing of this book. Shriver's earnest self-inquiry and her humility and readiness to regard herself as a 50-year-old work-in-progress make for a charming and genuinely inspiring read."
