Bill Klein and Jen Arnold are little people with their own show called The Little Couple on TLC. When the show began, they'd already established themselves in their careers and were about to get married. Life is Short covers the early years leading up to the show, addressing the unique challenges they individually faced being small, as well as the challenges common to many of us. Chapters alternate between Jen and Bill, beginning with their early childhood years. Both are very open about painful experiences, but also focus on how important attitude, love, support, and hard work are in overcoming obstacles in life.
Even for regular viewers of their show, there is still much in the book that will be of interest. The Little Couple remains very positive, while Life is Short details many of their early struggles such as bullying, work discrimination, and dating struggles. It is especially heartwarming to read about their journey to adopt their two beautiful children, Will and Zoey. I really enjoyed the book and recommend it to anyone regardless of whether you are a viewer of their show.
