Publisher's Summary

True stories inspired by one of the most iconic, beloved, best-selling books of our time.

In the 10 years since its electrifying debut, Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat Pray Love has become a worldwide phenomenon, empowering millions of readers and listeners to set out on paths they never thought possible, in search of their own best selves. Here, in this candid and captivating collection, nearly 50 of those readers and listeners - people as diverse in their experiences as they are in age and background - share their stories. The journeys they recount are transformative - sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, but always deeply inspiring.

Eat Pray Love helped one writer to embrace motherhood, another to come to terms with the loss of her mother, and yet another to find peace with not wanting to become a mother at all. One writer, reeling from a difficult divorce, finds new love overseas; another, a lifelong caregiver, is inspired to take an annual road trip - solo. A man leaves seminary, embraces his sexual identity, and forges a new relationship with God. A woman goes to divinity school and grapples with doubt and belief. One writer's search for the perfect pizza leads her to New Zealand and off-the-grid homesteading while another, in overcoming an eating disorder, redefines her relationship not only with food but with herself. Some writers face down devastating illness and crippling fears and others step out of their old lives to fulfill long-held dreams of singing, acting, writing, teaching, and learning.

Entertaining and enlightening, Eat Pray Love Made Me Do It is a celebration for fans old and new. What will Eat Pray Love make you do?

    "Basically Fan Mail with Sharing"

    Okay, so like a couple of days ago I used a credit to finally see what "Eat, Pray, Love" was all about. And it was mind-blowingly fantastic! Seriously, I did nothing else that day except listen to the book from cover to cover, feeling inspired, feeling joy, feeling like I could do anything I wanted in the world. The wisdom, the emotion, in that book is extraordinary.
    So when I saw a book about how other people were inspired to change their lives, I couldn't click on "Pre-Order" fast enough! I thought: Great! People on the same journey I'd been thinking about!
    ...meh...
    Oh, how disappointing. Basically it's fan mail and "Eat, Pray, Love" becomes a trite metaphor with people saying, "I thought he was my Felipe. It turns out he was my David." And "I brought out my Bible: 'Eat, Pray, Love...'"
    It's wonderful that people were and continue to be transformed; I think that's fantastic. But really, the stories are so basic: they run anywhere between 2 to 8 minutes, and there's only so much you can do with so short a window. We don't really get to know anyone, know their confusion, know their suffering. We don't really get to know the relief and bliss they find.
    Of course you're not expecting "Eat, Pray, Love" itself. That's not what you're looking at when you consider this book. Just don't expect the same heart, wisdom, pathos either.

    "Another Inspiration"

    Beautifully written and gorgeously read.

    I first read Eat, Pray, Love a year or so after it came out. It moved me, but not in an earth shattering way. When the movie came out, I bought it. Between the two, I was greatly inspired to make several life changes. This book showed me that not only was I not alone, I was amongst friends.

    Eat, Pray, Love Made Me Do It is funny, difficult, cry inducing, and humbling. Where I do disagree with some of Elizabeth Gilbert's motivations, I was happy to hear the stories of others who read her memoir and were also inspired to make a life change in order to truly find their direction.

    I would recommend this and the original to anyone looking for the inspiration to make a change, however small, in the context of their life's purpose. We are all looking for fulfillment, and reading the search from others is awe inspiring.

    I enjoyed the cast and the writing and will listen to this over and over.

    Thank you Liz.

    "Real life experiences"

    It was very interesting to hear the range of how people choose to act on their inspiration of the book. I think everyone could find a story to relate to.
