Reviews for The Book of Knowing: Know how you think, change how you feel

'This book is gold. It uses such clear, easy-to-read language.' Rachel Grunwell New Zealand Herald 'If only I had read this book when I was a teen, I would've saved myself years of confusion and torment.' Ghazaleh Golbakhsh, Villainesse 'It's an amazing book. I didn't even pick this up off the table of a pile of them...where they were being sold as 'Must Haves'. It was one book, sitting on a shelf, in category on its own. I hadn't read about or heard the buzz about it. As soon as I picked it up and flicked through, it spoke about all the things I have been trying to say to our girls but didn't have the right language. It's clever, topical and very relatable. Well done you....and a big Thank you! I'm so impressed with the book. Am reading it from cover to cover, passing it on to one child and buying a copy for the other child and every single niece and nephew. It's genius.' Anonymous, Facebook
