The Review

This was a captivating and thought-provoking read. The author did a fantastic job of writing in a way that taught the readers new skills and tools to use in their own personal development but wrote it in a way that the average reader would be able to understand, something a lot of self-help books find themselves missing the mark on. The personability and honesty in which the author spoke established a trusting and thoughtful tone that readers felt comfortable reading in. 

The theme and messages that the author utilizes here in these teachings were remarkable to read. The exploration of self-efficacy and self-compassion was an inspired choice of organizing and utilizing these skills. The dive into the inner and exterior forces that diminish our self-worth and drive our lives out of our control was so brilliantly put, and the author did a great job of balancing the teachable moments of the book with engaging and heartfelt storytelling to help illustrate his points.

The Verdict

A mesmerizing, gripping, and memorable read, author David R. Edwards’s “New You! Who Knew?” Is a must-read nonfiction book of 2022 for those seeking to better themselves and gain the tools and skills needed to take charge of their own journeys. The passion and heart for which the author spoke through his words and the research and development that went into these skill developments really showed through the author’s work, and if you haven’t yet, I highly recommend you grab your copy today!

Rating: 10/10
