People in Britain have more choices than ever before … but are they any happier? There’s evidence to suggest that many are drowning under the weight of their responsibilities and losing confidence in their ability to juggle more and more tasks. Steve and Lynn Clark are one such couple. Married with a five year-old child, they are successful and happy. On the surface. But their relationship is beginning to stagnate and their confidence in their life together – and each other – is starting to crumble. Until, that is, an unsolicited text message asks a searching question. It’s the first of a series that causes them to question their behavior and their values – and devise a series of remedies for their growing problems. Together, they create new ways to build confidence. Rules that anyone can apply to their own lives with similar results. Through this modern parable, told by Bill McFarlan – author of the best-selling Drop the Pink Elephant – and psychiatrist Dr Alex Yellowlees, one of Britain’s foremost experts in confidence, the authors get to the root of issues that affect every adult across the UK. Women feeling pressurized about their shape – over-achieving men who cannot enjoy success – parents who question if they’re raising their kids well – partners who need to love themselves be- fore they can love each other – adults who need to prune friends who are all ‘take’ and no ‘give’ – men and women who struggle to handle their relationship with their parents. All these thorny issues are covered in a groundbreaking book that takes fact – rooted in medical knowledge – and applies it to today’s society in a simple and straightforward manner. The dialogue is poignant, witty, heart-warming and real.
