I Never Promised You a Goodie Bag is a warm, wise, and wholly original memoir of survival, renewal, and transformation, by one of New York City’s most successful and respected special events coordinators.

With her top-level events company, Save the Date, Jennifer Gilbert has worked with Fortune 500 companies, broadcast media giants, international nonprofit organizations, and celebrities from Oprah Winfrey to Bill Gates and beyond. Yet few of her clients or colleagues have known, until now, that Jennifer not only a self-made success: she’s also a survivor. After a random, near-fatal attack left her body in critical condition on a crowded city street, and left her with emotional wounds that would take years to heal, Jennifer embarked upon a journey to reclaim her life.

This is her story, in her own words: I Never Promised You a Goodie Bag, an intimate, poignant, inspiring memoir of perseverance, rediscovery, and hope.

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.
