Reviews

I love it! Hilarious and thought-provoking! Love! -- Fearne Cotton
A laugh-out-loud funny book that also manages to be thought-provoking, perceptive and devastatingly honest. I loved it. -- Lucy Diamond
A sweet sharp read, and the last chapter made me cry. As someone a bit dubious of self-help books, it's perfect: Power spends a year trying to live a month per book. It's quite a fun journey through the ups and downs of negotiating ourselves through life, but underneath that is a serious, generous message, and it really does feel like you've learned something by the end of it. -- Jessie Burton, author of The Miniaturist
Marianne's writing makes me smile and has moved me to tears more than once. She combines a journalist's no-nonsense investigative skills with a tenderness and honesty that sets her apart . . . In helping herself, it turned out that Marianne was helping all of us. -- Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said
Couldn't put this book down - Marianne's honesty and wit shone through. There's something everyone can relate to, whether or not you like self-help - just a hugely enjoyable, fantastic read. -- Poorna Bell, author of Chase the Rainbow
Sublime and ridiculous, in equal measure. I tore through it hungrily. One minute I was having an existential epiphany, the next I was honking with laughter. Britain's answer to Sarah Knight, with Amy Schumer's naked hilarity and Matt Haig's soul-deep profundity chucked in. -- Catherine Gray, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober
I've just finished Help Me! by Marianne Power and it was wonderful. I've laughed and cried my way through it's pages. If, like me, you've read any self-help books, been depressed, experienced negative self talk or just wondered what it's all really about then I'd highly recommend this book . . . it discusses aspects of mental health so casually and conversationally. It's a wonderfully refreshing approach. It's worth picking up just for Marianne's Mum's sassy one liners alone. Give it a try! -- Keegan Hirst (on Instagram)
Sparkling . . . a laugh-out-loud odyssey, with embarrassing incidents and downright disasters aplenty. But the real triumph of the book is the way it transcends its "Bridget Jones gazes at her navel" premise to ask searching questions both about the purported effectiveness of self-help in the light of a multi-million dollar personal development industry; and about how we can really best find contentment. If you've ever worried that self-help might be a euphemism for self-obsession, then this is a book for you. * Bookseller *
Power is such an engaging writer, it's hard not to empathise with what she's saying . . . Plus, she's very funny . . . Marianne Power is a delightful companion and one who (putting all natural misanthropy aside) acts a powerful reminder that the traditional ways of denigrating or demanding too much of ourselves ain't going to get us anywhere . . . excellent * Emerald Street *
Funny and fearless, I loved Help Me! almost as much as I loved Marianne's mum who was always on hand with some no-nonsense advice and really needs to write her own self-help book. -- Sarra Manning * Red Magazine *
