Review

Brave Sian's honest words will help so many women ... When we are plunged into a real-life crisis, an ongoing nightmare which could end in tragedy, we need handbooks. They are extremely comforting. Books help us to make sense of life, to feel our hand is being held and crucially that we are not alone. Sian is a wise and warm woman and all of us owe her our thanks (Judy Finnigan DAILY EXPRESS)

Stories of triumph and survival really do help others. Sometimes cancer sufferers find it easier to unburden themselves to strangers rather than worry their families. They will find much comfort (Jan Moir DAILY MAIL)

Searingly honest and deeply personal (MAIL ON SUNDAY)

Sian writes with honesty and feeling about her experience of breast cancer, from its initial diagnosis in 2014 through to the double mastectomy, her slow recovery and reconstructive surgery. Written in diary form, it describes her sense of bewilderment and vulnerability but also her resilience and some of the lessons she learnt ... Now she hopes the book will be a help to other people (HELLO)

A brilliant and compelling guide (WOMAN & HOME)

Sian Williams should be applauded for speaking out as the operation can have a lasting effect on people. While a junior doctor, I worked in breast surgery and saw first-hand the psychological impact of mastectomies. Yes, they often saved someone's life, but that person could feel a profound sense of loss (Dr Max Pemberton DAILY MAIL)

When Sian Williams was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, she was forced to reassess everything about her health, work and relationships. Pitched into a frightening world, she sought out those who had grown stronger despite suffering unimaginable trauma and loss, to try and find out how they'd done it. She also turned to scientists for the latest research into building resilience. Her book Rise: Surviving and Thriving After Trauma brings together that guidance and practical advice, in a psychological first-aid kit aimed at helping us all through the toughest of times (YOU magazine)

Uplifting and inspirational. Sian Williams doesn't just write about growth following trauma, she has been on the rollercoaster herself. This is also an honest and hopeful account of her experiences with cancer that will help anyone confronting adversity in their own life (Stephen Joseph, Professor, and author of 'What Doesn't Kill Us. The new psychology of post traumatic growth')

TV presenter Sian Williams has written a book called Rise. It's about how to build resilience against stress and it's a real heartwarming read (Dr Ranj Singh WOMAN)

A helpful mixture of practical stratagems, inspiration and shared experience for anyone facing adversity (Jane Shilling DAILY MAIL)
