All of the essays in this collection are timely and relevant, delivered with her trademark wit and a good dose of humility. Another thing I love about Martha's advice is that it is accessible -- sure, there are psychological concepts and jargon presented, but she makes them all completely understandable and relatable. I can't really afford a life coach or a therapist, so I've always looked to Martha's words of wisdom as my own personal form of therapy and coaching. In fact, after reading and re-reading these essays, I purchased her latest book, which is of course fantastic and a fuller, more robust version of these essays.
This book is well worth the $3.99 Kindle price for all of the wisdom and advice you'll get from it, and it's something you can keep going back to when life gets messy and complicated and confusing.
Inside, as usual you will find Martha's keen sense of humor and quick wit. Her way of getting the healing messages across and into our subconscious is at times so amazing that it is almost scary. This is the first in a series of collections of the articles she has written for O Magazine the last 10 years. If you are like me, you can finally stop tearing them out of the magazine every month and then try to find a safe place to keep them.
For anyone who has read her other books, this is a must have. Savor it and enjoy it and really listen to your body's response as you read her words. You will swear at times she wrote the article just for you, probably because she did!
I can't say too much without anyone thinking this is some kind of paid endorsement. I promise it's not, I am just an ordinary individual who has gained much healing from her other work and I don't want you to miss on an opportunity to gain the same.
Can't wait for the next volume. ♥
