Editorial Reviews

Review

I love this book like I love my closest girlfriends because just like them, it is funny and smart and brave. Like them, it is comfortable with the mess and the vulnerability―in me and in life. Like them, it digs into the details, the nuances of how we forge our paths, the stuff it often seems no one is willing to talk about. Whenever I put it down, I craved going back to it for more mentorship and comfort. It’s a truism among us personal-growth writers that everything we are writing about has been written about a thousand times before, but I’m telling you―this book has never been written before.
Tara Mohr, author of Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead

A truly brilliant book. Jennifer Louden is warm, down to earth, and thoroughly practical as she explores the profound question of what matters most to each of us. It’s quite stunning how she weaves together personal stories, deep reflections, inspiration, and immediately useful actions. A gem.
Rick Hanson, PhD, author of Resilient: How to Grow an Unshakable Core of Calm, Strength, and Happiness

I ended my own book with the words, ‘Now what?’ When I picked up Jennifer Louden’s book, I felt as if it were a follow-up to my own question. Why Bother? spoke to me as if I were speaking to myself (in a loving voice, instead of the jerky one) and it has become my guide, my map, my bible, my confidante. I want everyone I know to own a copy as tattered as mine.
Jennifer Pastiloff, author of On Being Human

In Why Bother? Jennifer Louden shows with great honesty that feeling what is ours to feel is how we endure our way into a more authentic dream where who we are is more than enough. Without being prescriptive, this book is a strong and sensitive companion on the path of becoming fully human. It will help you unravel your entanglements and live.
Mark Nepo, author of Drinking from the River of Light and The Book of Awakening

This book is a revelation. Why Bother? woke me up from my creative slumber and revitalized the desire I had pushed to the side in favor of ‘getting things done.’ Jennifer Louden’s words gave language to the areas of my life that felt stagnant, and immediately catapulted me into the action my soul craved. If you’ve been looking to tap back into your truest desires and deepest purpose so you can craft a life of meaning, this book will help you do exactly that.
Amber Rae, author of Choose Wonder over Worry: Move beyond Fear and Doubt to Unlock Your Potential

Why Bother? is a reclamation. With curiosity, wisdom, reverence, and grace, Jennifer Louden shows us how to transform two simple words from the ultimate expression of futility into a path back to desire and, eventually, meaning. Read it, then live it.
Jonathan Fields, author and founder of Good Life Project
