Headon (Poetry First Aid Kit; Literary First Aid Kit) is all about positivity and self-empowerment. Here, she shows readers how to overcome self-doubt and reawaken their power to dream and to make those dreams a reality. The book's nine chapters focus on energizing various aspects of life (e.g., careers, relationships, world change) and feature inspirational quotes, short bios, and tips to tune out inner and outer critics. "Yes Labs" included under each heading—"Get Outside Your Comfort Zone," "Relight Your (Learning) Fire," "Tune Out the Critics," and more—present concrete ideas for enhancing a can-do attitude. Headon then inspires readers to learn a new skill, listen instead of talk, follow a historic path, and more.
VERDICT The text, layout, and realistic suggestions all make for an enlivening read. Recommended.
