Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Navigating day-to-day life can be a tricky business. By the time we are adults, our experiences have formed our way of thinking and we have learned patterns of behaviour that are not always helpful. We must unravel these to understand, accept, nurture and allow ourselves to rise with our vulnerabilities, not in spite of them.

After having a breakdown in 2011, Will Young went about the process of interrogating everything he thought he knew: how he formed his identity, what he relied on for self-esteem and how he behaved and communicated. Everything he has learned over the past 10 years, he has now condensed into this easy to access A-Z guide. He digs into how everyday life can affect our wellbeing, how we can navigate our emotions, where they come from and how to create a balanced mindset, offering practical techniques we can all use to ground ourselves and set boundaries.

With wit and wisdom and revealing his own vulnerabilities along the way, Will shows us how to identify destructive patterns, develop good mindful habits, be true to who we are and grow into better versions of ourselves.

Fantastic self help book

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Will Young read his book. So many of the points he raised rang true as well as raising new concepts that I could further give thought to. I found it easy to listen to, as the a-z format focused on lots of short issues and is not heavy going like some self help books, Will has a lovely calming voice and is down to earth with his wit and wisdom. This is a book that I will go back to for future references.

Thank you Audible

I wasn't aware Will had brought this book out so I am very pleased it was brought to my attention by Audible.
I have always been a fan of Will's.
As a singer, actor and TV personality. I know can add author to the list.
Written in such a way I was able to understand. I found it very helpful. Not so long I could get bored and yet I didn't want it to end.

This book is so good. I’ve listened to many books about self care & wellbeing etc, AND (not but) its clear & relatable. Thank you 🙏🏼 Truly wonderful & makes sense of many of the terms used. It’s light & funny too. Which we all need. ❤️
I will listen to this again and again.
