The author has a really warm and compassionate voice. Reading the book felt like having a drink with your bestie who is giving you the much-needed pep talk. I have checked the author’s social media account and she seems a genuinely sweet person. I am sure she has aided many people in their journey to emotional well being. And she calls herself a coach, not a psychotherapist.

However, I can't imagine this book offering any new insights to anyone who has ever done some 3 AM self-analysis driven by

I took my time with this book and I am very glad I did. I started it on a train to Amsterdam, on my way to spend time with myself and my family. It was the full moon so it felt appropriate. It took me one lunar cycle exactly to get through this book and all the exercises. Such an inspiring and honest read. I made me realise a few things actually, I am very self-aware already which was a nice finding but there are many barriers and self-limiting beliefs that this book highlighted.

I absolutely cannot rate this book highly enough!
I feel that I have explored so much about my personality and behavioural traits than ever before. I’m only on page 71 and can already feel myself becoming more self aware and feel how much it is helping me. Thankyou Lucy!

As instagram turns ten this is the companion book you need to navigate the comparison that comes with contrasting our life with the picture perfect lifestyle portrayed in the portal that instagram provides us with.
Lucy is generous, informative,practical but never preachy in her approach to finding our way through potential pitfalls.
The book is divided into helpful sections and the beauty is you can take your time with each part.The format is practical as well as informative and offers real life

This book started out incredibly well, really made me evaluate my thoughts, past, and relationship with my self-confidence and the comparisons I made between myself and others.
The book started to take a down turn with the solutions to healing those issues, it open wounds that now aren't even close to closing.

Lots of solutions around work and relationships, but generic. Work around cutting out the negative people in your life.
The self confidence part was the most disappointing, comparing yourself

It's really a proactive user journal for those who are really seeking to change habits surrounding Instagram use. I think she had some good points but she's not a psychiatrist and this isn't a book for those seeking to find the root cause of their problems. She's a lovely girl though so I'd recommend it for anyone who is really looking to engage with something to make a change. ...more

A really great read. Happily, I feel like not all of it applied to me, but the parts which did really resonated. I found some parts really helpful and useful and it's definitely made me think about how I deal with comparison. ...more

I enjoy this book a lot because it is very practical. It's hard work trying get through the exercises. This is not an easy read if you have a genuine comparison problem. ...more

Honestly thinking of scrapping the reading challenge this year and just reading this again and again until it truly sinks in. A must-read for anyone with low self worth and a tendency to spiral in comparing yourself to others (especially on social media).
