In this book, the real Erin Brockovich (played by Julia Roberts in the Oscar-winning film) shares her most personal challenges and shows how all of us, no matter how down-and-out, can call on our inner strength to achieve success. In a battle that climaxed with an astounding quarter-billion-dollar settlement, the drama that led up to Erin's victory was one that began when she was a little girl suffering from dyslexia, shyness, difficulties at school and a taste for the wild side of life. The journey she took from Kansas to California led her down a road of self-realization, self-improvement and self-empowerment. Drawing on the moral fibre of her heartland childhood, her inner strength --- often her only resource --- helped her beat overwhelming odds and overcome painful obstacles such as dead-end jobs, dead-end relationships and loneliness. Erin here shares her achievements and continuing struggles, in order to offer readers valuable lessons in reaching their full potential, regardless of the circumstances. TAKE IT FROM ME aims to illuminate a path to empowerment, success, self-satisfaction and happiness that anyone can follow.
