Finally - a health-focused book just for writers!
Reviewed in the United States on January 21, 2018
As always, Joanna Penn (this time with co-writer Dr. Euan Lawson) has delivered an informative, helpful, and inspiring book for authors. While much of the health advice inside is either common sense or information that writers likely have heard before, Penn and Dr. Lawson explain the medical aspects clearly, share anecdotes from their own health journeys, and offer simple, actionable advice that applies specifically to writers. Beyond physical health, they also dive into emotional and psychological well-being, which are so often overlooked by similar books. After reading The Healthy Writer, I feel less alone with some of my health concerns and have the tools I need to improve my writing workspace and develop healthier habits. Recommended for fans of Penn's other nonfiction titles and for any writer (or even individuals in office jobs) who have felt the negative physical/emotional effects of a sedentary career and want to improve their health.
