Rise Up & Shine!

By Cristina Saralegui
Published by Celebra
ISBN-13: 978-0451470966

For more than two decades Cristina was the host and executive producer of “The Cristina Show” one of the highest rated programs on Spanish-language television. Cristina was named one of the “25 Most Influential Hispanics in America” by Time and was the first Spanish-language television personality to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the first Latina to be inducted into the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame where she joins such television legends as Walter Cronkite, Barbara Walters and Johnny Carson.

But “having it all” hasn’t always come easy for Cristina. In Rise Up & Shine!, Cristina doesn’t just reveal the secrets behind her success. She also shares personal, hard-won lessons that have helped her through life’s most difficult moments, like the cancellation of her Univision talk show after twenty-one years of dedicated work and her son’s life-threatening battle with bipolar disorder.

About Rise Up & Shine! Cristina said:

This book is for the woman who struggles to support her family and needs to learn how to stop being invisible; the one who deserves a raise, but doesn’t know how to ask for it; the one who desires long-lasting love, but needs to learn how to choose the right life partner; the one who wants a family, but is not willing to give up her ambitions; the one who still does not know what she’s worth and must learn how to toot her own horn. In these pages, I share with you my secrets not only to help you reach your goals, but also to inspire and unify women across generations to be stronger and more capable of conquering whatever we set our minds to.
