Amy Purdy, who inspired a nation on Dancing with the Stars and has been called a hero by Oprah Winfrey, reveals the intimate details of her triumphant comeback from the brink of death to making history as a Paralympic snowboarder. In this poignant and uplifting memoir, Dancing With the Stars sensation Amy Purdy reveals the story of how losing her legs led her to find a spiritual path. When the Las Vegas native was just nineteen, she contracted bacterial meningitis and was given less than a two percent chance of survival. In a near-death experience, she saw three figures who told her: “You can come with us, or you can stay. No matter what happens in your life, it’s all going to make sense in the end.” In that moment, Amy chose to live. Her glimpse of the afterlife—coupled with a mysterious premonition she’d had a month before —became the defining experiences that put Amy’s life on a new trajectory after her legs had to be amputated. She wouldn’t just beat meningitis and walk again; she would go on to create a life filled with bold adventures, big dreams, and boundless vitality—and share that spirit with the world. In 2014, Amy—the only competitor, male or female, with two prosthetic legs—claimed a bronze medal for the U.S. Paralympic team in adaptive snowboarding. She then became a contestant on season eighteen of Dancing With the Stars, and viewers were captivated as the girl with bionic legs managed to out-dance her competitors all the way to the finale. Amy’s journey is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the capacity we all have to dream bigger, defy expectations, and rewrite our stories. Amy was given a second chance for a reason—to use her life to inspire others. Her powerful memoir urges us to live life to the fullest, because we are all a lot more capable than we could ever imagine.

YOU ARE A SMART WOMAN, BUT DO YOU STILL: —Feel you’re too busy to invest your money? —Rely on someone else to deal? —Get bored by financial talk? —Think that investing is something only men do? —Worry you’re not smart enough? THINK AGAIN. Women have made strides in so many areas and yet we still have a blind spot when it comes to managing our money. Why? A myriad of factors cause women to earn less than men over a lifetime, making it all the more imperative that we make the money we do have work for us as much as possible. And here’s a reality check: as many as nine out of ten of us will have to manage our finances and those of our family at some point in our lives. And a lot of us think that means keeping our money “safe” in savings accounts, and not investing it. But not doing so has an opportunity cost that will lead to opportunities lost—the ability to pay for a college education, own a home, change careers to pursue a dream, or retire. Alice Finn wants to change how you think about your money, no matter how much or little you have. In Smart Women Love Money, Finn paves the way forward by showing you that the power of investing is the last frontier of feminism. Drawing on more than twenty years of experience as a successful wealth management adviser, Finn shares five simple and proven strategies for a woman at any stage of her life, whether starting a career, home raising children, or heading up a major corporation. Finn’s Five Life-changing Rules of Investing will secure your financial future: 1. Invest in Stocks for the Long Run: Get the magic of compounding working for you, starting now. 2. Allocate your Assets: Strategize your investing to get the most of your returns. 3. Implement with Index Funds: Take advantage of “passive” investing with simple, low-cost, and diverse funds. 4. Rebalance Regularly: Sell high and buy low without much effort, to keep you on track toward your goals. 5. Keep Your Fees Low: Uncover hidden fees so you don’t lose half of your wealth to Wall Street. Finn will also provide the tools you need to achieve long-term success no matter what the markets are doing or what the headlines say. So even in the face of uncertainty— such as the possible dumping of the fiduciary rule (requiring financial advisers to act in their client’s best interests) by the Trump administration—Smart Women Love Money will help you protect yourself and all of your assets for your future. Whether you have $10, $10,000, or more, it’s time to get smart about your money.
