‘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.

'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 F*ck

'Amusing, practical, and filled with delightful asides, this book will appeal to anxiety-prone readers, who will find much to calm them in these pages.' – Publisher’s Weekly
