Another great book from Annabel and packed full of deceptively simple but highly effective advice. I love the 52 week format – an easy to read and digest tip for every week of the year. Treat yourself to this at Christmas and transform your year ahead. There’s nothing fancy – it’s all stuff you can start doing right now – and put across in Annabel’s common sense style and backed up with stories and anecdotes to make the points. If you know any procrastinators, anyone wanting to make a change in their life or feeling lost as to their future direction – here’s the perfect gift for their Christmas stocking.

I love this book, so much so that I often carry it in my handbag as a go to boost for when I need inspiration, motivation or reassurance. Interspersed with Annabel’s down to earth advice are interesting stories which neatly illustrate the point she wants to get across. The advice is simple, practical and really reinforces the point of action over inaction. Great for the procrastinator that resides in us all at times. A perfect gift for yourself.

Further to the previous reviews recommending this book as a perfect gift, I received it for Christmas and just slurped it up! The suggestions are both practical and dare-to-dream-bigger. The tone is both gentle and tough, peppered with much humour and kindness. Refreshingly, it didn’t read like it was written for a specific audience and so lives up to its cover promise of containing wisdom for EVERY kind of busy person.



This is such an accessible, hands-on book. Broken into 52 fabulous tips for making life more vibrant, and those tips themselves full of different ideas and inspiration. My current favourites are `Focus on your strengths… choose one of your top five strengths as your theme for the week and if you encounter a challenge, draw on that strength to help you handle it.’ And `Don’t ask `why?”  (why is my life like this? why me?) Instead ask `what?’ (what can I do about this? what can I learn? what’s the first step?) The book is brimming with deceptively simple coaching ideas,each one with far-reaching effects. I keep it nearby for when I’m stuck or down: it’s a brilliant tonic and pick-me-up, or rather pick-myself-up… Highly recommended.

What I love about Annabel’s tips is that they are always written in a very down to earth way. Because they are short and succinct, I am never too busy to read them. They are relevant, practical and usually very poignant. I often find myself nodding along as I read about her experiences and her tips on how to change things, small or large. Keep them coming!

I have a shelf full of personal development books that rarely get opened. Annabel’s tips are quick to digest, relevant and backed up with real life experience. Most of all they act as a trigger for me to slow down, take stock and begin to address something I’ve been putting off!
