Help Me! by Marianne Power: Bookmark in Spalding's Book of the Week
The team at Bookmark in The Crescent, Spalding, present their choice for the week:
Marianne Power was stuck in a rut. Then one day she wondered: could self-help books help her find the elusive perfect life?
She decided to test one book a month for a year, following their advice to the letter.
What would happen if she followed the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People? Really felt The Power of Now? Could she unearth The Secret to making her dreams come true?
What begins as a clever experiment becomes an achingly poignant story. Because self-help can change your life – but not necessarily for the better . . .
Help Me! is an irresistibly funny and incredibly moving book about a wild and ultimately redemptive journey that will resonate with anyone who’s ever dreamed of finding happiness.
Help Me by Marianne Power (RRP £8.99) is available from Bookmark in The Crescent, Spalding, at £6.99. There's a further 20% discount with the voucher in this week's Spalding Guardian (on sale June 27-July 3).
