"Un libro que no pueden dejar de leer todos aquellos que deseen tomar las riendas de su destino y encontrar un punto de partida para construir una nueva historia. Laura Esquivel afirma que si somos los protagonistas de nuestra propia historia, entonces también podemos transformarla, darle una nueva dirección para no atarnos al pasado, no encerrarnos en el papel de víctimas ni asumirnos como seres indefensos frente a la circunstancias. Para lograrlo, Esquivel narra su experiencia en dos medios que hicieron que su nombre diera la vuelta al mundo: la escritura y el guion cinematográfico, dos suministros que podemos aprovechar para alcanzar los cambios que anhelamos. Basada en distintos descubrimientos científicos y reflexiones, Esquivel nos guía paso a paso mediante ejercicios que permiten modificar nuestra vida al reescribir el guión de la misma dejando atrás la culpa, los miedos, el dolor y todo aquello que nos causa daño."--Amazon
