In this video, Oprah announces Bittersweet
by Susan Cain as her 99th Oprah's Book Club selection. "This book has the power to transform the way you see your life and even the world," she says. "I have started to look at my own life in the world differently."
This nonfiction title explores how we deal with sadness. Not by denying it. Not by surrendering to it. But by acknowledging it. Even if, at times, it seems self-defeating because: We're all supposed to be happy, right? Or at least try to be happy?
"If we realize that all humans know—or will know—loss and suffering, we can turn toward each other," Cain writes. "We're never going to love or even like the bad things that happen to us, but the more we see it all as part of life, the more we can get to the richest form of happiness we can possibly know."
Cain is the author of the bestselling Quiet
, which has been translated into 40 languages. Her TED talks have been viewed over 40 million times.
