5 Awesome Books by 7 Awesome People
This is an extra special book recommendation post because, for the first time, I am friends with each one of the book’s authors. The recommendations are certainly not rooted in bias – I am just super proud to be able to toot the horns of these amazing people for the brilliant work they are producing to the world.
I have just finished reading each of these books, and I highly recommend you add them to your reading list toot sweet.
1. GETTING REAL ABOUT HAVING IT ALL
By Megan Dalla-Camina
I met Megan at the Hay House Writer’s Workshop a couple of months ago. Getting Real About Having It All is Megan’s first book, and the book that won her a publishing deal with Hay House! Pretty impressive, right. This book is a must-read for all women who want to live an amazingly full life – without the usual side-effect of burnout.
2. HUNGRY FOR CHANGE
By James Colquhoun and Laurentine Ten Bosch
You guys know James and Laurentine from their films Food Matters and Hungry For Change, but this incredible couple have just released their first book. Also titled Hungry For Change, this tome is a brilliant guide to breaking free of diets. It also contains a heap of amazing recipes in the back.
3. SOUL SURVIVOR
By Carren Smith
Carren Smith is one of the people who I respect most in this world, and after reading her book I’m sure you will feel the same way. I know Carren because she is my speaking coach and wonderful business mentor, but reading her memoir revealed even more of this incredible woman.
A year after losing her partner to suicide in 2001, Carren flew to Bali with two of her friends with plans to end her own life. The first night they were in Bali was the night of the Bali Bombings, and Carren and her friends were at the club that was attacked. Carren survived, but her friends didn’t. Carren’s story is so tragic, yet it’s her triumph over tragedy and extraordinary resilience that makes this book so compelling.
4. CRAZY SEXY KITCHEN
By Kris Carr
I challenge anyone to test out the recipes in Kris Carr’s latest book and still think that vegan, healthy eating is boring. In Crazy Sexy Kitchen, Kris has teamed up with plant foods chef Chad Sarno to deliver a book full of plant-empowered inspiration and mouth-watering vegan meals.
5. LIKE CHOCOLATE FOR WOMEN
By Kim Morrison and Fleur Whelligan
This book isn’t new, but that doesn’t make it any less special. It’s a classic, must read. An ode to essential self care and self kindness, Like Chocolate For Women is the book all of us need on our bookshelves. I recently spoke at an event with Kim (pictured above) and she is one of the sweetest people ever. I’m so proud to endorse her message.
