First, We Make the Beast Beautiful: A New Story about Anxiety

£16.99   hardback  Transworld Publishers Ltd (2018)

First, We Make the Beast Beautiful: A New Story about Anxiety by Sarah Wilson

"Probably the best book on living with anxiety that I've ever read."
(Mark Manson, bestselling author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck)
If you have anxiety, this book is for you. If you love someone who is anxious, this book is for you.
 
I Quit Sugar founder and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson has lived through high anxiety – including bipolar, OCD and several suicide attempts – her whole life. Perhaps like you, she grew tired of seeing anxiety as a disease that must be medicated into submission. Could anxiety be re-sewn, she asked, into a thing of beauty?
 
So began a seven-year journey to find a more meaningful and helpful take on anxiety. Living out of two suitcases, Sarah travelled the world, meeting with His Holiness The Dalai Lama, with Oprah’s life coach, with major mental health organizations and hundreds of others in a quest to unravel the knotted ball of wool that is the anxious condition. She emerged with the very best philosophy, science and hacks for thriving with the beast.
 
First, We Make the Beast Beautiful is a small book with a big heart, paving the way for richer, kinder and wiser conversations about anxiety.
