Summary

Comedian and broadcaster Susan Calman danced her way across our screens and into our hearts for 10 weeks on Strictly Come Dancing 2017, but how did this ability to find joy change her life? 

Susan Calman's enthusiasm at being on Strictly Come Dancing was an inspiration to all of us. Cheer Up Love, Susan's first book, had a clear aim: to help people understand depression. Sunny Side Up has a similarly clear path: to persuade people to be kinder to each other and spread more joy. 

These are extremely difficult and confusing times - people are cross and shouty. It's exhausting! But more than anything, people like Susan, people who don't hate other people, are apologising for the way that they think. Susan wants to make sure that they don't. That it's okay to love people, that kindness is something wonderful and brilliant and to bring on the joy. 

So the mission is simple. To get the nation to join her in not being negative. To bring back joy, kindness and community, to find that joy in the little things in life and defeat the hate and fear. 

Susan is a one-woman army of hope and joy, and she's ready to lead the nation in a different direction.

The whole book is an act of kindness

A beautifully simple yet profound theme weaves it way through Susan’s new book - remembering that the simple pleasure of life and being a good human being can bring joy and hope.
It may seem too good to be true, but listening to the change that she has gone through since her last book is a lovely thing.

Joyful book from Susan Calman

Robin Williams once said “I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.”
This audio book washes positivity over the listener, made me smile, cry, and laugh out loud in public. Buy it! Listen to Wonder Woman gently pushing for more kindness in the world and find out how she really coped with the sparkles and glamour in the TV ballroom (Strictly NO false fingernails!).

I loved it.

She is one of my favorite comedy writers, after her last book "Cheer up love", I knew I had to get every book she writes.
