Penguin Pr. Nov. 2021. 192p. ISBN 9780143135609. pap. $17. SELF-HELP
Poet Daley-Ward (The Terrible; Bone) urges readers to rediscover and redefine their own true desires and aspirations. The how is about removing the filters of others and meaningless activities to find what personally resonates. Daley-Ward offers encouragements, questions for journaling, and meditations to help unearth one’s true essence. A particularly interesting exercise asks readers to think about the music, books, and poetry they like, and identify the main themes that run through them to find insight into their lives.
VERDICT Ideal for writing prompts for solo journaling or for self-realization discussions.
