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 Burnett 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.
"Some women are amazing-others are nothing short of riveting and unforgettable, like Dianne Burnett. Burnett is a warrior-my kind of woman-actually, every woman's kind of woman-she inspires us to never give up on our dreams."-Suzanne Takowsky, Beverly Hills Times

|Dianne Burnett is an author, producer, and
actor of stage and screen. She is also a philanthropist
and entrepreneur. Dianne and her ex-husband,
Mark Burnett, joined their creative forces to invent
Eco-Challenge, the impetus for Survivor, which kickstarted
America’s reality-television show craze and
went on to become the longest-running and most
lucrative reality TV series of all time.
Following the success of Survivor, Dianne produced and acted in
the stage play Beyond Therapy at the Santa Monica Playhouse, served as
Executive Producer of the indie film Jam (which won Best Narrative Feature
at the Santa Fe Film Festival), and acted in Everybody Loves Raymond.
In memory of her mother, Joan, who lost her battle with esophageal
cancer in 2010, Dianne formed Joan Valentine—A Foundation for Natural
Cures, a nonprofit organization that serves as a resource for those seeking
alternatives to traditional medicine. She also recently launched a multimedia
platform and social network: called theotherside.com, it explores
alternative views on everything from relationships to health. Formerly of
New York, Dianne now lives in Malibu, California, with her family.|
