She was recently featured on Bravo's million dollar shoppers (twice). I haven't read the book, but would not as she was the most difficult and negative person I've witnessed in a very long time.

It was an "ok" book. Nobody can deny that she went through a horrible ordeal and good for her for moving on. However, I found that her tone was very arrogant at times and got the impression that she is a bit stuck-up.

This was not as insightful as I thought it would be. The story of her (SPOILER ALERT) attack was harrowing, but the rest of the book fell flat somehow. It's not a bad read, just not as riveting as I thought it would be.
