Is laughter really the best medicine? How can caregivers stay healthy and sane when confronting enormous challenges?

Bestselling author and Santa Barbara resident Jane Heller answers these and many other questions facing America’s 65 million caregivers in her latest book: You'd Better Not Die or I'll Kill You: A Caregiver's Survival Guide to Keeping You in Good Health and Good Spirits.

In the same witty and accessible style she’s displayed in her 13 romantic comedies, nine of which have been sold to Hollywood, Jane shares the story of her 20-year marriage to Michael Forester, who has Crohn’s disease and has been hospitalized nearly 100 times since he was diagnosed. She also interviews other caregivers – from members of the Santa Barbara community to award-winning actor Victor Garber and Dear Abby’s Jeanne Phillips – and provides advice from experts ranging from therapists and meditation teachers to fitness instructors and a cookbook author.
