Appreciate Audible putting this in front of me. Mel Robbins is incredibly relatable, practical, insightful and genuinely inspiring. I learnt so much from her coaching and she's made it particularly easy to take action with the thoughtful addition of that wonderful PDF.

Somehow missed the whole Eat Pray Love phenomenon, so when I finished The Signature of All Things (which I loved) I got a big surprise when I followed up on Elizabeth Gilbert.

This may be why I ended up with Big Magic after searching for a completely different Audible book, and I'm tremendously grateful.

I can't think of any other book I've listened to quite so intently. Not only does Elizabeth Gilbert have a lovely reading voice, but there is so much wisdom in Big Magic, I would recommend this book to everyone - not just frustrated artist, actors, writers, dancers...

I work in IT and haven't had an inclination to do anything creative since I had to do art at school. This book has inspired me in such a profound way that I'm now savouring and enjoying life like never before.

The tidbits about The Signature of All Things were also a bonus for me, because I completely lost myself in that wonderful story.

What Does it mean to feel truly alive? Aged 24, Matt Haig's world caved in. He could see no way to go on living. This is the true story of how he came through crisis, triumphed over an illness that almost destroyed him and learned to live again. A moving, funny and joyous exploration of how to live better, love better and feel more alive, Reasons to Stay Alive is more than a memoir. It is a book about making the most of your time on earth.
