    I think this book is useful for those who struggle with depression or delay their goals in life. It is well structured and I understand the author is specialized in this type of problems, ensuring a scientific background for the book.

    Ultimately, this is a practical guide for improving your life, it’s written well enough so that it does not feel like a chore and it is effective. It would have been boring reading it essay like with long descriptions. But fortunately here the format is nice and easy to read. I truly enjoyed this book, and would recommend it for others who are trying to find a little bit of happiness. Thumbs up 👍🏻.This review is based on NetGalley ARC pro...

    I love that this book was strategy based with steps to take I, essentially, changing the way you think. It is just as advertised - a jump start guide - like a coach on the side. I found reading the introduction was key to getting the most out of each chapter. Very helpful book and one that you will want to keep on the shelf to easily pick up and reinforce your goals. A good read.

I did read bits and feel like putting my hand up and say yes that’s me!
