The launch of the Kindle version of ‘Risking’ follows the recent announcement that Davis’ previous memoir ‘Three Years in Ethiopia: How a Civil War and Epidemics Led Me to My Daughter’, which was released in 2019, is now an official Amazon bestseller.
Her debut non-fiction book, ‘Searching for Sitala Mata: Eradicating Smallpox in India’, was released in 2017 with similarly positive accolades, winning the 2017 Global Ebook Awards in the non-fiction and inspirational categories.
In this, her third book, Dr. Davis, who is known by her friends as Connie, explores the life-affirming experiences that marked her career as a humanitarian and epidemiologist working in some of the world’s poorest countries.
By recounting the journey that led her into this often dangerous, frequently emotionally devastating, but always vastly rewarding field, Connie’s true story serves as a call to action for readers to carve out a meaningful and purposeful life for themselves.
The memoir, which is titled in full ‘Risking Is Better Than Regretting: Live Without Regrets’, uses Connie’s personal story as a touchstone for readers. It partners moving details about her life with insightful instructions for readers that teach them how they can make decisions that really matter.

Despite the difficult conditions and challenges that often informed her professional career, Davis’ memoir is imbued with hope and optimism and her passion for living a life of value and meaning is truly inspiring.
Dr. Cornelia E. Davis is an author, speaker, epidemiologist, medical doctor, and public health expert. Throughout her career, she succeeded in improving the quality of life of millions by working towards the eradication of some of the world’s worst diseases.
A spokesperson for the author said, “‘Risking Is Better Than Regretting’ compels you to look inward and examine your life. It’s not too late for a do-over. No matter where you are on the journey, you don’t have to live with regrets.”
