In The Relentless Courage of a Scared Child: How Persistence, Grit, and Faith Created a Reluctant Healer, Tana Amen shares her incredible story of transformation—of growing up in poverty, a bullied latch-key kid raised on sugary cereal and junk food, to becoming a world-renowned food and fitness expert.
