Will learn something new

This book is easy to follow. Learnt some new approaches to how I deal with my emotions and those of others. But overall it gave me the realisation that it's ok to put myself first! I'm looking after my SHED!

Book is narrated by the author so you feel you're getting 1:1 coaching.

Everyone should read this!

A great “pick me up”of a book. Easy to follow great to listen to and filled with sound advice. Everyone should have a copy I have gifted mine to my teenage daughter.

Motivating!

I have tried other books and found them to be to delivered by alphas - with no self awareness, overpowering. This is delivered in a constructive and clam way, from the ground up. The author / reader has personality and voice that is endearing and caring. This book is all about you, helping you, whoever you are, whatever you do. It’s also short and focused so doesn’t loose your attention. I find myself going back and listening to random chapters to remind me. I wish I had read this years ago.

fast narrator

kind of a fresher perspective for self help it poses a new means of change, this unfortunately is not rocket science nor new ( all self help has been already written) Also a bit too much use of case histories and not enough pauses for thinking or contemplation. I'd thought it may hold my attention to the end but sadly I will return this one undone.

An excellent read

This book is a total game changer. I have read or listened to very few books that have genuinely changed the way I think - but this is definitely one of them.

The Shed Method is logical, it challenged me, it affirmed what I knew and It offered a number of practical steps to use to better myself.

Sara Milne Rowe has put together a really practical guide to self improvement and I am already recommending this to everyone I know!

Brilliantly insightful

Loved every minute of this book which has a huge range of practical tips to take you forward on your own journey. Really reminds you of what is important and how to recognise when you try and trip yourself up. Thank you Sara.

Easy to listen too and very helpful.

Good in all regards but probably aimed and younger more professional type listener but plenty helpful for all in it.

Brilliant

I loved this book. It was really well read by the author, who is British and not American and I loved her voice! It is full of practical and no nonsense advice that I could apply immediately.
