Publisher's Summary

THE INSPIRING SUNDAY TIMES BEST SELLER

Fearne Cotton's voice is familiar to millions, whether that's through television, radio or on her hugely successful Happy Place podcast. Her voice is her career, her livelihood and the way she communicates with her audience and her loved ones. So, when Fearne's doctor told her she was at risk of needing a throat operation followed by two weeks of being unable to speak, she found herself facing a period of unexpected contemplation. 

As she considered what silence would mean, Fearne began to think about other times her voice had gone unheard - as a young woman, as 'just the talent', as the foil to louder, more dominant figures. She found herself wondering, at what point do we internalise this message, and start silencing ourselves? When do we swallow down our authentic words to become pleasers and compromisers at the cost of our own happiness or wellbeing? Speak Your Truth dives into all the ways we learn to stay quiet for the wrong reasons, and explores how to find your voice, assert yourself and speak out with confidence.

Brave, vulnerable and deeply personal, Speak Your Truth shares Fearne's compelling story and helps you to shape your own.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

I soaked up every word

I have to say everything and I mean everything Fearne said in this book I could correlate back to myself. It is reassuring to hear others feel things the way I do, when others like to tell you your over sensitive, weird, hang onto things for too long because they have barraged you with their own thoughts and do not accept you may have a different thought ! Thank you Fearne fir making me feel I am not so alone

Exactly what many of us need to hear.

Wonderful truths from a wonderful woman. Learning to Speak Our Truth is something we could all do a little bit more of in our lives. Fearne Cotton leads you through the process, giving you prompts, to help you understand what your truth may be and how you may be able to speak it better. I found listening to this book a real comfort and such good practical advice too. Highly recommended.

Loved this book and totally resonated with the things Ferne had experienced when speaking (or not speaking) her truth!

Feels more like a long podcast than a book

Fearne is nice and I can identify with much of what she says, particularly family life. There was a lot of content about the pandemic and lockdown which will not age well for the book. There are some useful insights but I’m not walking away feeling much more empowered to “speak my truth.” There was a LOT of name dropping and cross promotion of Fearne’s podcast, books, and other initiatives. There were long sections about BLM, transgender rights, the environment etc that are worthwhile talking points but don’t really fit with what I thought the book was aimed at. They seemed more like required politically correct content. Fearne had an eager upbeat way of talking which works well for radio and for this book, as if she was interviewing herself, but I think this is part of why it felt more like a podcast. Fearne seems like a nice person trying to do her best and I wish her well. I’m sure others will get more out of this book than I did.

Just what I needed!

Lifted me from a flat week and then looked forward to every time I put it on and felt inspired, heard my own thoughts, worries and insecurities being spoke allowed. Thankyou for a wonderful and honest look at life and the ups and downs of change and growth!

another fab book from fearne

fearne cotton could honestly read a take away menu and I'd find it though prevoking. so many parts of this book resonated with me and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who has a habit of biting their tongue over voicing their opinion. the thing I enjoy most about fearnes books is they aren't necessarily a self help this is how to fix your life book, but more of a I'm struggling too here's what helps me kind of offering.she also keeps the book very relatable, less about celebrity life and more about the every day rubbish that brings us all down in life.

Such a simple message but a powerful one

Sometimes it takes someone else to point out something so simple. Something you already know but have forgotten or put to one side.
I will definitely be trying to speak my truth from now on.
