'I love it! Hilarious and thought-provoking!' Fearne Cotton
'A sweet sharp read' Jessie Burton
'A laugh-out-loud funny book.' Lucy Diamond

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.

Perfect for readers who enjoyed Everything I know About Love by Dolly Alderton, Mad Girl by Bryony Gordon and Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig.

MEDIA 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 . . . it's perfect -- 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 -- Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said
Couldn't put this book down - Marianne's honesty and wit shone through . . . a hugely enjoyable, fantastic read. -- Poorna Bell, author of Chase the Rainbow
Sublime and ridiculous . . . 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
Wonderful. I've laughed and cried my way through it's pages . . . I'd highly recommend this book . . . 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 * Bookseller *
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 *
