Simplicity is the key,

This review is from: How To Stay Sane: The School of Life (Paperback)Self-help books are often too long and sometimes patronising. This is short, informative, encouraging and practical. It focuses on the way the brain works, and how you can make changes to the way you think, offering a very manageable series of suggestions that you can implement almost immediately. The structure of the book is also clear and sensible: sections on self-observation, relating to others, stress and re-writing your own narratives are followed by a final section of exercises to help you develop in each of these areas. I like the way Philippa Perry has illustrated her ideas with information about research that illuminates human behaviour. She gets the balance right between explaining the theory behind her suggestions, and giving you practical advice about how to go about the pro-active business of living and reflecting on life.
Not only an interesting read, then, but the kind of book which could genuinely change your life.

This writing is calm and clear - much as you might be if you really absorb and practice - daily - the lessons of the book. It has earned a place on my shelf, and to be referred to often.
