Help Me! by Marianne Power

The first chapter of this book caught my attention, “The Life-changing Hangover”, I’ve had a few of those myself so I was intrigued. The premise of this book is very simple, Marianne is a lover of self-help books and has a huge collection of them. Yet for all she has read, her life has not improved in the slightest. So she sets herself a target to follow the philosophies of one self-help book every month for a year, including Feel the Fear and do it Anyway and F**k It: The Ultimate Spiritual Way.

Cue a lot of mantras, self-actualisations and a few “poor me” moments. This was an easy read and quite funny in parts. The author comes across as very likeable and you want her to succeed in her efforts. Although there were some parts where I wanted to shake her and say “cop yourself on!” This was overall a nice easy read, a book that was good to dip in and out of.
