Full Kirkus Review:

A debut guide advocates self-improvement through autobiographical exercises.

Wade presents to her readers what she labels the Essential Life Story Method of transforming how they view their pasts and reshaping how they live in the future. The ELS Method, she asserts, will allow you to open "a window into your soul." Going through that window "will uncover the blueprint of your own psychology and change that blueprint in ways that will immediately improve how you think, feel, and behave." The ELS Method revolves around a deceptively simple core exercise: writing a brief (only five pages to start) autobiographical sketch. Take a pen, some paper, a private space, and then ponder and write your life story, at first in broad outline and then in increasing detail. In clear and very encouraging prose, Wade notes a handful of "best practices," including write first by hand and transcribe to a computer later, read each chapter twice, and get feedback. These practices are intended to guide ELS participants as they expand their autobiographical drafts. Those expansions are likewise delineated, step by step, portion by portion. Readers are given a helpful series of writing prompts like: "What positive qualities, habits, and/or patterns do you admire in your mom? Which of these could you benefit from emulating more strongly?" The personal drift of such upbeat questions points to the ELS Method's inner purpose, which is to use autobiographical exercises to take control of your own personal narrative. "The energy of your story radiates outward," Wade writes, "producing a field around you that attracts everything that matches your story's frequency and repels everything that doesn't--good or bad." The author deftly emphasizes that although ELS participants can't change the past, they can reframe it--and that this can all happen through the power of storytelling. It's a basic and thrilling claim, one that will cause readers at all stages of writing expertise to seriously consider putting their own stories down on paper.

An unconventional and ultimately uplifting call to reclaim your own life story.

4.0 out of 5 stars “A self help book to guide you to your future by reflecting and finding the good in your past.”
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on July 22, 2020
#Insight- Our memories comprise of both good and bad ones. And what we do according to our instinct is remember the bad ones and use them to define our life. This book tries to change that through the ELS method. It tells us to use the positive memories, instead of the negative ones, to define our life. The ELS method, along with many examples, and inspirations are explained in the book.

#Review- The ELS (Essential Life Story) method is basically about changing your perspective of your own life, and taking control of it, along with the divine power you believe in, which the author calls source.
In the first few chapters, the author tells us about the ELS method, how she conceived it and how she used it to change her own and many other people’s lives. Further in the chapters, the method is explained in detail step by step with external links for resource materials for the ELS method.
An important thing in the chapters is that the author knows exactly what problems the reader might face, like being discouraged and leaving the method in between, and she writes that it’s okay. This feels like the author really understands people and going through hard times.

#Drawbacks- Although it is a self help book, in the beginning it needs to have more examples or short stories of success to make the reader take interest.

#Strength- The way the book is written, the author is telling the readers that it’s okay to be in problems as long as you’re trying to find a way out. The writing style makes the book a guide, not just a self help book, but your own personal Guide.

#Target Audience- For Everyone who thinks their past is stopping them from advancing into their future.

#Rating 4.2
