Why Should You Read My Book? #BTBY

wpid-become-the-best-you.jpg.jpegFriday was launch day for my fourth baby (AKA Become the Best You, the book I’ve been working on all year) and it went really well. It peaked at #47 in the Amazon self-help charts which I was pretty chuffed about! I really enjoyed the buzz of promoting the book and have loved watching the five star reviews come in. 

For those that have bought the book thank you! I hope you’re enjoying it, and I hope it helps you in some way or another. For those sitting on the fence or heard the hype on social media but don’t really know what the book is all about here’s the Intro page.  You can also read a direct excerpt right here.  

“Introduction: Why Should You Read This Book?

There are many self-help books out there telling you how to think, what to wear and how to behave. Qualified professionals are desperate to give you their views on any subject matter you require guidance on. What’s so special about me? I’m just a regular person. I don’t have letters after my name or a rags to riches story, so why should you bother reading this book?

After having a dysfunctional childhood, and self-destructive young adulthood, I broke away from my past and created a much brighter future. Rather than just talk about my children never having to experience what I went through myself (like my parents did) I worked damn hard to ensure it was the case. Throughout this book I will share personal stories from my life and insights on how I overcame the many obstacles I have faced over the years.

I’ll tell you how I broke the cycle of dysfunction, and hopefully it will inspire you to go off and do the same. Getting passed my past wasn’t easy, but it wasn’t impossible. I promise not to talk about things that I have no personal experience of, and I won’t pretend to have all the answers. But I might just have the ones you are looking for.

If you can identify with this list of demons I had to conquer, this book is for you!

– Raised by parents who had dysfunctional childhoods and subsequently had one myself

– Moved house lots and went to many schools
– Suffered bullying in several schools
– Suffered sexual abuse as a child
– Left home at a very young age after not finishing school
– Struggled with depression
– Got into a lot of debt
– Had very little self-respect
– Used to sleep around
– Abused drugs and alcohol
– Put myself into unnecessary, dangerous situations

What do I hope you will achieve by reading this book?
– The ability to make peace with your past
– The ability to look in the mirror and like what you see
– The ability to find your inner strength and start respecting yourself
– The courage to re-define the rules of relationships that have become toxic
– The courage to cut ties with people who make you miserable
– The courage to break the cycle, keep it broken and become the best you

What this book doesn’t do 

– Use overly complicated words or examples that are difficult to understand
– Go into minute detail telling you exactly what to do
– Patronise you and assume that you aren’t capable of turning your life around”

Become the Best You is available to buy from Amazon for £5.99 as a paperback, or £3.08 as a kindle download.

In fact, I’m going to buy it now so I have it when the moment strikes! #Allaboutyou

    It’s dropped down now unfortunately, the charts move so quickly and there are so many new books released all the time. It was a thrill on Friday though 🙂 xx

    Incredible lady, cannot wait to read this, you’re an inspiration #allaboutyou x

  21. December 2, 2014 / 9:27 am

    You’re amazing and I’m off to buy this right now. (I meant to do it on Friday but got caught up in birthday shenanigans!) I’ve no doubt the book will continue to be a huge success, well done my darling. WELL DONE. xxx

    That is so amazing Reneé 🙂 I’m about half way through and it’s brilliantly written and very accessible. I actually think that the principles and ideas you discuss can be applied to all of us at some points in our lives, we all need a little help with breaking bad habits, being kinder to ourselves and moving on from the things that hold us back. I will write a review as soon as I’m finished 🙂

  23. December 1, 2014 / 9:35 pm

    Wow! It’s only going to go up the chart lovely. I think I’m going to ask Santa to put a copy in my stocking Zx

  24. December 1, 2014 / 6:57 pm

    I am reading it. Sorry if I am slow. There are lots of times I have to stop because its too much. Too familiar. #MagicMoments

    Congratulations on publishing your book. I’d say you were more than qualified to write this as you’ve so much life experience. Good luck x
