In her bestseller The Battersea Park Road to Enlightenment, Isabel Losada set out with a modest aim - 'to be absurdly happy every day'. But a few years down the road, she's stuck in a pothole. No job (not good). No man (very not good). Nothing has turned out as she'd intended. There's only one way to get out of the hole: throw out the ideas that landed her there and start over. So, using the ancient Chinese tradition of the five elements of life - Metal, Fire, Wood, Water, Earth - Isabel breaks her own life down to its essentials to explore five areas of inner and outer change. She calls in a feng shui consultant to discover that her bedroom decor is 'draining the father' (whatever that means)...takes a motivational workshop to experience the power of 'doing'...turns a silent meditation retreat into an exercise in unrelenting 'being'...sits at the feet of a Brixton guru to examine the nature of mind...and undertakes a shamanic ritual in the Amazon to part company with her own mind completely. As rich as the book is in the particulars of a life hilariously lived, it's also universal: readers can see themselves in Isabel's experience and look at their lives with new eyes.

“Spiritual Humour at its Best!”

Well, what can I say! I have read all of Losada's books and each have got me thinking in various ways as much as they have got me to laugh out loud as she brings you to reality with a bang!
