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 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 - 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?

Introduction written and read by Elizabeth Gilbert.

Read by Cassandra Campbell, Marc Cashman, Robbie Daymond, Mark Deakins, Ariana Delawari, Jorjeana Marie, and Emily Rankin.

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.

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.

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.

Easy listening

I liked the book because I also found many similarities in my own life.
This is not a critic or anything, just my point of view I found that almost all the stories said that without the book they will have never made it, and they felt as if they had to go through the exact same path as Liz, travel for so long and this and that! Of course is inspiring but not to the point that without it you will not survive!
Nice to see that so many people go through similar things and that time goes by and you move on!

Not as “pure” as the original

As a Christian I was challenged by the original book to expand my heart and see her experiences through the eyes of grace and love. Her experiences challenged my faith in the most genuine and non-judgmental way possible, which allowed me the freedom to be genuine and non-judgmental in my response. This book however felt like my faith was ridiculed time and time again which left no room for me to experience the writers’ experience without reeling from the pain of their judgement. A sad retrospective on what was an amazingly spiritual existence with EPL. It has left a bad taste in my mouth….

Better than the original!

Yes, I liked it better than the original! That says a lot! I LOVED the original! I loved how each reader had a different, yet equally valid response. I didn’t relate to Liz’s divorce part of the story, but not everyone does. This book allowed me to realize I have my own story and that is okay!
