If you've ever belted out I Will Survive karaoke-style at 4am (with accompanying hand movements to helpfully illustrate the lyrics for onlookers), then you'll know that this disco anthem is more than a song. It's a personal journey towards empowerment and strength, especially if you've consumed numerous cocktails prior to listening.

Which is why we probably shouldn't be surprised that Gloria Gaynor, the woman behind the 1979 dance floor fail-safe, has penned a book that tells us how to — you guessed it —survive.
Gloria was on hand to serenade Moschino's 30-year anniversary show yesterday, and backstage she revealed details about her new book. According to the singer, I Will Survive has taken on its own life, and its effect has inspired her to write a book about “40 survivor stories from fans around the world,” she told WWD in an interview, “these are people who went through traumatic experiences…even more than the song, what could be more inspirational than a story where one has come out victorious, finding that there is a way out?” You said it Gloria.
The book is set for release on December 1, and will be accompanied by an inspirational CD. If this isn’t the perfect Christmas gift for, well, everyone you know, we strongly recommend that you get some new friends.
