Featured title in Publishers Weekly: "Keeping the Mind, Body, and Spirit in Tune" (August 6, 2018).
"A fantastic memoir-style self-improvement book. Wilson made me laugh out loud as well as sympathise with her journey. There are lots of ideas and suggestions for how taking on new challenges can both change your mindset and your life for the better."
— Sacha Black, Goodreads Reviewer
"I don't do self-help books. I find them preachy and they tend to make me feel useless. This one is different. It breaks the year, and the task to change your life, into 12 (and then 52) bite sized pieces so I didn't feel intimated… Absolutely going to keep making changes for [the] better!"
— Trish Hills, Goodreads Reviewer
"This book is written as a memoir of the year’s experiences rather than as an instruction manual and the author’s chatty, easy going style makes the reading easy. Some will get more from this than others I’m sure but everyone will get something that will bring a little more focus into the way we are living our lives. It has certainly made me stop putting off something I’ve been needing to get to grips with for a while and that has been a real boost, thank you Ms Wilson."
— Georgia Rose, Goodreads Reviewer
"I enjoyed it so much I read it in one day! And it has given me the motivation to make changes, starting small, and aiming big!"
— Ritu Bhathal, author of Marriage Unarranged
"The book blurb says straight talking with a touch of humour and this is what makes it such a good book for me. I think there are too many celebrity ‘guru's’ who are totally detached from reality, but the author Shelley Wilson comes across as honest and above all practical in her approach to change. It makes it easy for readers to identify with and realize they are not alone. I will be reading it more than once!"
— Jenny Cook, Goodreads Reviewer
"a refreshing book on change because it is kept real at all times. The suggestions and examples Shelley Wilson gives are within anybody's reach and with a little dedication relatively easy to achieve. I also like the presentation and style of writing which makes it easy to delve into and pick up at your leisure without feeling lost."
— Lorraine Carter, Goodreads Reviewer
