How To Be Sad by Helen Russell - Book Recommendation

How To Be Sad by Helen Russell

How To Be Sad by Helen Russell examines our cultural tendency of pursuing happiness to our own detriment. This is a book that explains the benefits of sadness and how avoiding it causes us pain in the long term.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS BOOK
Helen Russell's penchant for stories from her life experiences makes this book believable and her theory on sadness solid. The way she tells her stories makes the book interesting and her explanations easy to follow.

DISLIKES
Some of the stories go on for too long, making the reader lose interest after a while. How To Be Sad is a tome that can afford to lose a couple of pages.

WHO IS IT FOR?
This work may benefit those who sometimes feel they have to put on a smile at all times, regardless of what they are going through.

Many thanks to 4th Estate for review copy.
