Get ready to Laugh. Get ready to cry. Get ready for a whirlwind of an adventure. Settle in for a powerful, poignant story of inner strength and courage, and get a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at the making of Survivor, the world's most popular reality show.

Spinning their mutual love of exotic adventure into gold, Dianne Burnette and her former husband, TV Producer Mark Burnett, co-created Eco-Challenge, an expedition-length racing event televised on Discovery Channel that catapulted them into the arena of reality TV and set the stage for Survivor, a modern-day Robinson Crusoe with a million-dollar prize.

But Dianne and Mark's fairytale marriage did not survive their Hollywood success... she found herself left behind, her contributions unrecognized. She lost her partner in life and began to lose her identity.

In that experience, she found an opportunity to grow.

A fascinating, fast-paced, heart-warming "page-turner," The Road to Reality takes readers on a roller-coaster ride, complete with a zesty romance, as well as the ups and downs of going for your dreams, while it imparts the lessons learned as Dianne discovers what really matters in life is something beyond fortune and fame.
