Reviews for The Joy of Being Selfish: Why you need boundaries and how to set them

'A practical guide that will reclaim your time, energy and self-belief' * Stylist * 'Michelle has made me feel more confident in my own boundary setting in my workplace and relationship. I could not recommend this book enough to those who struggle saying no and put other people's happiness before their own' -- Holly Hagan 'Michelle's sense of empowerment and self-love and self-care is so palpable you can actually use it as bricks and mortar to build better boundaries for yourself ... I certainly have!' -- Carrie Hope Fletcher 'Michelle is the queen of boundaries. We all need this book, now more than ever! Whether it's work, romance, family or friends, Michelle will guide you through the process of setting boundaries. By the end of the book you'll be proud to call yourself selfish because it will mean you are showing yourself the love and respect you deserve' -- Katie Piper 'If you feel guilty saying no, expressing your needs or standing up for yourself, allow this book to hit you with some uncomfortable but necessary truths. Michelle's signature take-no-sh*t attitude combines with genuine compassion and expertise to teach you what boundaries really look like, and why you deserve them. Every woman in my life would benefit from this book' -- Megan Jayne Crabbe, @bodyposipanda
