How did I get the book? Received from publisher in exchange for an honest review

Genre: Non Fiction / Mental Health

Review: I dipped into How Not to Lose It the first time on a day that I was incredibly stressed. The tag on the book promises “Mental Health Sorted” after all.

I appreciate the contents Anna Williamson has included. The narrative is directed at a young readership but there is no condescension to the audience. Instead the author acknowledges how everyone has their own battles.

How Not to Lose It includes thing like; tips on what to look for in identifying stress, myth busters, advice. I think it’s a helpful book for the audience it’s aimed at.
