Review: Playing Big by Tara Mohr

A different way of looking at life compared to other self-help/management type books I’ve read. Many of the ‘issues’ to be dealt with were ones I have had to grapple with, but this book encourages tangible action with examples if you’re a bit stuck, which was awesome.

Review: The Power by Naomi Alderman

Contemplates what would happen to society if the power suddenly shifted from the men to the women. Doesn’t go the way you might think. Gripping, with obvious potential as a tv series. 4*

Review: The Book of Joy by Dalai Lama

Lovely account/ interview full of advice from the Dalai Lama and Desmund Tutu who are great friends and full of laughter. The world needs more compassion and this book leaves you with a warm heart and some practical meditations to allow you to implement it. Must read 5*

Review: Pants of Perspective by Anna McNuff

Energetic and emotional journey running the length of New Zealand. It inspires you to pick up your trainers and go, but to run that far with such weight is testament to the lady herself. Incredibly engaging must read. 5*
