"Amber Rae’s very personal journey of moving from a constructed identity of self limiting beliefs to her true self―in the domain of creativity, wonder, joy and higher consciousness―offers inspiring insights and lessons for anyone wanting to unfold their infinite potential." ―Deepak Chopra
"Amber Rae's book is a revelation. With wit and joy, she instructs and enlightens and coaxes the reader to find what keeps us stuck in old habits both creatively and personally. She does so with compassion, like a close friend, never falling prey to condescension. I found myself nodding either in agreement or because of an A-HA moment on every page. She's the Elizabeth Gilbert of her generation and this book does not disappoint. You really can choose Wonder over Worry and all I can say is WOW. (See what I did there?)" ―Stacy London, New York Times bestselling author of The Truth about Style
"Amber Rae is a thought leader on the rise. Choose Wonder Over Worry gives you tools, guidance, and life lessons to make powerful changes in your life!" ―Lewis Howes, New York Times bestselling author of The School of Greatness
"This book is a gift. If you're lucky enough to read it once, you'll probably read it ten times, and then buy copies for all the people you care about." ―Seth Godin, New York Times bestselling author of Linchpin
"Powerful, practical, and honest, Choose Wonder Over Worry is the boldest invitation of all: to be your truest self and pursue the calling that is yours and yours alone." ―Steven Pressfield, New York Times bestselling author of The War of Art
"Deeply rooted in her own experience, Amber reflects just how Wonder-ful getting to know Worry can be. She takes the reader on a journey of internal self-discovery, parting the veils on our past so we can imagine―and divine―a wonderful future."―Elle Luna, author of The Crossroads of Should & Must
"Reading this book felt like a conversation with a childhood friend about the fears that hold me back from realizing my hopes and dreams. Amber Rae’s vulnerability in sharing her journey will inspire confidence that all goodness in life will come from letting ‘wonder’ happen. The tools she shares will help you accept and be your whole self, and encourage you to live your most interesting life right NOW!" ―Marissa Andrada, SVP, Kate Spade & Company

There are so many moments in this book I could relate to -- the shame surrounding a failed project, the envy for a colleague who gets the opportunity you wanted, and the perfectionism that keeps you stuck in place. Where most of us would shy away from these feelings, Rae encourages us to explore what these hard emotions have to teach us. There is wisdom in our fear, worry, anxiety and self-doubt -- if we take the time to unearth it and not let it paralyze us.
This is a book about interrupting the patterns that hold you in place and keep you small. It's about discerning the difference between what Rae calls useful worry and toxic worry, and re-engaging with sense of wonder you're born with.
Bravely and boldly honest, I was hooked by the vulnerability in the stories woven throughout this book. I felt like I was sitting across from a good friend, swapping stories and theories on life, encouraging one another to follow their truest, purest dreams. I genuinely believe that Amber Rae wants each of her readers to embrace their own stories and live their dreams out loud. It's a very empowered voice throughout.
This would be the perfect book especially for young women heading off on a new, sometimes daunting adventure. I would have loved to read this my first year of college and had this enthusiastic call to action to choose wonder over worry! But even now in my early 30s, the message is just as important and refreshing to hear. The illustrations and workbook-like items could be a book unto themselves!
In this book, Amber Rae invites you to consider this question through the lens of her own highly relatable life experiences. At some point along the way, Amber came to understand that all feelings—even the hard ones—can be helpful allies with the right perspective.
The notion that these feelings we tend to push away as being "bad"—anger, jealousy, perfectionism, anxiety—might actually be able to serve and strengthen us, is radical to many but equally important to master.
Reading Amber's story, I couldn't help but find parallels to my own life throughout. In Amber's case, however, she took away from every challenge that she encountered a critical bit of wisdom that informs her in the present day. I can't help but feel called to try doing the same.
I've known Amber for a long time, but after reading this I feel like I know her—and myself—so much better.
Reading this book was a constant rotation between saying "OMG me too!", madly scribbling things down that stuck out to me, and having to sit quietly in moments of realization about my own behaviors.
This is a book that I will read and re-read many times.

Phenomenal book my friend. As one of the back quotes says this is a book “you buy copies for all the people you care about.” So. Much.Read more
