Help Me! by Marianne Power

One Woman’s Quest to Find Out if Self Help Really Can Change Her Life 

“I love it! Hilarious and thought-provoking!’ Fearne Cotton

“A sweet sharp read” Jessie Burton

“A laugh-out-loud funny book” Lucy Diamond

There came a point one hungover Sunday, when Marianne Power realised that things could not carry on the way they were. Outwardly her life looked great; she had her dream job, lots of friends, designer clothes and nice holidays. But the reality was that while her friends were getting on with buying houses, starting families and generally moving on with their lives, she was stuck in a rut and lost. Then she had an idea. Instead of endlessly reading self-help books in an attempt to fix her life, she would DO self-help books, to be more exact, she decided to road test one self-help book a month for a year.


MARIANNE POWER is a writer and journalist who lives in London. Help Me! is her first book.
