Radio and television host Glenn Beck has experienced the rollercoaster of life like few others. From the suicide of his mother when he was just 13, to his eventual alcoholism, depression, divorce, unemployment, and health scares - Glenn has weathered life’s darkest storms.
Any one of those struggles could’ve ruined him, yet Glenn was able to keep moving forward. He saw past the darkness into the light; past his grief and addictions and into what his life could be.
YOU CAN DO IT TOO
The process of finding happiness through personal redemption was not easy, but it left Glenn with a blueprint for how to confront future adversity. Glenn is living proof that these steps - he calls them wonders - don’t just work on paper. They helped transform his life and can they can help to transform yours as well.
The 7 Wonders
Glenn Beck and Dr. Keith Ablow—two of the most popular and influential personalities in American media today—have joined forces to present a powerful guide to personal transformation and fulfillment that is as unique as their own unlikely partnership. They are called the “7 Wonders” and they can be used by anyone who has made the decision that they are ready to change their life.
After the television talk show host and the best-selling psychiatrist struck up a fast friendship they realized that their experiences with life’s struggles were complementary. What Keith had studied, Glenn had lived. What Keith had counseled patients on for years, Glenn had suffered through for decades.
The deeply personal insights they shared brought them to realize that their life stories had seven key principles in common; seven wonders that seemed to be essential ingredients for anyone attempting to transform their life.

This book is powerful! Once I started listening, I couldn't stop. I found peace, hope, and courage as I listened to this book and was inspired to become a better person. I love this book! It is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to. I definitely will be listening to this over and over.
Listening to this book was both pleasure and pain. I believe there is no growth with out both. I grew while listening and I will listen to it again and again to help me master these life guidelines.
I like the real life comparisons in this book. They made it easy to see where I could relate this to my life.
Being a Glen Beck radio listener, Pats voice is familiar and that made it feel like the stories were coming from a friend. Dr. Sack is so confident and sure that these things will change your life if you are true to them. You can just hear it in his voice.
Very much both! I could not even listen with my children in the car! They are young and I could not explain...
Very good book. I was enlightened and encouraged by the story and Dr. Ablow's incite to each part of the story
The honest description of Glenn's life.
This book is extremely powerful especially if you have hit rock bottom. This is not the Glenn Beck of radio and tv. This is a very serious and contrite individual.
I usually read books to learn and occasionally for fun. I enjoy a good narrator that can hold my attention.
This book was very inspiring and memorable after it was read. I highly recommended it.
I was a bit suspect of this book. I find Glenn Beck's show and political commentary to be about 50% interesting and 50% irritating on the rare occasions I listen. But this book is both inspires and teaches in profound ways. I highly recommend it.
A brave and honest book. Inspiring. I have never seen or heard Glen Beck but I deeply respect him for having produced this book. Think I just might turn on FOX and tune in.
There are no other books that I have listened to that compare. The format was great, Having Glenn and Keith have their companion parts.
Both were wonderful. How can one pick a favorite? Without the other the book is half complete.
To believe in ones self. To listen to your mind, heart and gut. The book was very motivational. It made me think of the decisions I made in the past and how to strive to be a better person for me.
...I have never read (or in this case heard) a book that made me want to start the book again right after I finished it the very first time. I was so interested in what the message was behind the book that I wanted to make sure I didn't forget anything or just want to hear again such inspiring words. I am so happy that Glenn Beck and Keith Ablow wrote this book. Something they were destined to do. Having Pat Gray read Glenn's part and Brian Sack read Keith's part was great as both did the audiobook justice. As I said in all my life I have never read a book that made me want to start the book again. I'm sure just like Glenn's book The Christmas Sweater" that I listen to once a year I will revisit the The 7 time and time again. Thank you Mr. Beck and Mr. Ablow for this book.
I really liked hearing about Glenn Beck's life experiences, especially related to the LDS church. His candid stories were human and easy to relate to. The "Dr" excerpts in between were ok, but were like elementary lectures...I took them as a 'reminder' of the principles they were trying to communicate. I did enjoy listening.
