‘Hence her short, sharp guide to managing your mind — Stressilient: How to Beat Stress and Build Resilience — is pointedly written by a woman for women…[Akbar’s] methods actually work and she explains them really well… Stressilient is a zippy read but it is grounded in robust scientific study… Akbar, 46, is instantly recognisable as a lovely person. In the book she quotes Charlie Brown alongside Greek philosophy, the Auschwitz survivor and psychologist Victor Frankl and the French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir.’ THE SUNDAY TIMES STYLE
