Summary

In Quiet, Fearne Cotton explores why so many of us question whether we are, or will ever be, 'good enough'. This beautiful audiobook, filled with Fearne's creative hand-drawn illustrations and thought-provoking activities to still your mind, will silence your inner critic and stop you from continually self-sabotaging. 

Quiet includes interviews with people who have helped Fearne to accept her flaws and love her own imperfections as well as advice on how to drown out misinformation and the sometimes pressurising noise from family, work and friends, which can fuel our insecurities and self-doubt.  

Fearne talks honestly and openly about what it's like to live in the public eye and shares some of the methods and practical activities she uses to ignore negative online chatter and trolls. She acknowledges the terrifying stats and research linking social media to rising levels of depression, anxiety and other mental health issues in young people and offers advice about how to listen more selectively to what we are told in an era of constant sharing, oversharing and general misinformation about what is 'good' or 'bad' for us.   

Stop competing with all the noise out there and accept that Quiet might be your most formidable force yet.  

Written and read by Fearne Cotton.

Good, but you need to buy the book too.

To be able to read Fearne's interviews in this book you need the book, she doesn't read them out in the audio book, because of this I thought this audio book was pointless.

Helpful, but incomplete

Brilliant dialogue as always, however, to appreciate it fully you need to read it because there are many PDF documents to accompany it, which you can’t hear.

Parts missing!!!

incredibly disappointed. Keep being told that interviews and other bits are in a PDF... I don’t want PDF I want to listen to interviews as it’s an audiobook!
Not happy that parts of the audiobook are ‘missing’

Honest, funny and heartfelt advice

loved this. I've heard all Fearne's books and she is honest and funny and relatable. Really helped me to recognise negative chatter for what it is and I've learned to let go more and move on.

A nice book to listen to

Not the most helpful of guidance books but not too heavy either. I bought the book and listened to the audiobook as well. I just didn’t have time to read but wanted to read the interviews from a book which come with the audiobook as pdfs.

Some worthy points are made throughout. This isn’t written by a shrink but an ordinary woman trying to do her best like the rest of us. So the book is grounded and doesn’t dictate from a pedestal.
