Waterstones Says

Having battled with anxiety her whole life, Wilson refuses to view the condition as one that needs to be medicated into submission and First, We Make the Beast Beautiful is her passionate, persuasively argued case for an alternative approach.

‘Probably the best book on living with anxiety that I've ever read.’ - Mark Manson, author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Journalist, blogger and I Quit Sugar author Sarah Wilson has lived through high anxiety - including bipolar, OCD and several suicide attempts - her whole life.

Tired of the perception of anxiety as a disease that must be medicated into submission, Wilson embarked on a seven-year journey to find a more meaningful and helpful take on anxiety.  First, We Make the Beast Beautiful  is the result of that quest, brimming with the most potent philosophy, science and hacks for thriving with, and understanding, the beast.

Sarah Wilson scored an inspirational hit with her polemic for better-living I Quit Sugar. First, We Make the Beast Beautiful courageously takes on issues that have long-haunted Wilson’s life, offering a pragmatic and informal route through anxiety.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Full of great, solidly researched, personal and genuinely useful tips for the anxious mind …I loved this book. - Matt Haig

Probably the best book on living with anxiety that I've ever read, and I have (unfortunately) read many. Sarah is full of expert advice while remaining grounded and incredibly human. Her vulnerability is her strength. And after reading, it will hopefully be yours too. - Mark Manson, bestselling author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fck

Moving, sensitive and inspiring... this is comfort and serenity in book form. - Stylist

A witty, well-researched and often insightful book about negotiating a new relationship with anxiety. - Andrew Solomon, Professor of Clinical Psychology and author of The Noonday Demon: An Anatomy of Depression

Eloquenty written ... I love the concept of making the thing we fear most into something beautiful. - Andrea McLean

An insightful memoir. - Hello!

This book is just absolutely wonderful. I've loved Sarah Wilson for a very long time but this has blown me away. I return to this book over and over again. A really special gem. - Cherry Healey

Sarah is a brilliant and agile writer, who takes aim at under-exposed afflictions, helps us to understand them and shows us a path towards a solution. First with sugar addiction and now with anxiety, she curates the latest research and takes readers on a journey that will change the way we think about the disease and the people who suffer from it. - Dan Buettner, New York Times bestselling author of The Blue Zones

A tremendously entertaining, wise and effective book on how to walk through anxiety and reclaim life. Sarah’s battle and triumph over anxiety inspires and gives solutions that work. First, We Make the Beast Beautiful resides at the intersection of science and lived-experience. I know of nothing in the same league. - Xavier Amador, PhD, psychologist and founder of the LEAP Institute

Sarah's life mission is to help us all feel less lonely in our pain. These pages are filled with authenticity and clear direction for how to return to our spiritual truth. - Gabrielle Bernstein, New York Times bestselling author of May Cause Miracles
