Editorial Reviews

Review

“Probably the best book on living with anxiety that I’ve ever read, and I have (unfortunately) read many. Sarah is full of expert advice while remaining grounded and incredibly human. Her vulnerability is her strength. And after reading, it will hopefully be yours too.” (Mark Manson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck)

“A witty, well-researched, and often insightful book about negotiating a new relationship to anxiety.” (Andrew Solomon, New York Times Bestselling author of Far From the Tree)

“Sarah’s life mission is to help us all feel less lonely in our pain. These pages are filled with authenticity and clear direction for how to return to our spiritual truth.”     (Gabrielle Bernstein, #1 New York Times bestselling author of May Cause Miracles)

“A tremendously entertaining, wise, and effective book on how to walk through anxiety and reclaim life. Sarah’s battle and triumph over anxiety inspires and gives solutions that work. First, We Make the Beast Beautiful resides at the intersection of science and lived-experience. I know of nothing in the same league.”  (Xavier Amador, Ph.D., psychologist and founder of the LEAP Institute)

“An affecting memoir of coping with anxiety over a busy lifetime. […] Those who endure anxiety will find Wilson’s thoughtful, often funny self-analysis to be just the right companion and affirmation.” (Kirkus)

“Uplifting, earnest […] practical, and filled with delightful asides, this book will appeal to anxiety-prone readers, who will find much to calm them in these pages.” (Publishers Weekly)
