Orion Spring will publish Lucy Sheridan's "positive and empowering" book on how to tackle low self-esteem.
Orion Spring acquired world rights to The Comparison Cure: How to be less 'them' and more 'you' from Abigail Bergstrom at Gleam Titles. Written by comparison coach Lucy Sheridan, the book will be published on 26th December 2019.
Accredited by the Association for Psychological Therapies, Sheridan has "helped thousands of people go from compare and despair to #comparisonfree, and now she has condensed all of that liberating knowledge into The Comparison Cure", said Orion Spring. "With a three-step tried and tested methodology to help you improve your self-focus, self-worth and self-confidence (#1 recognise the symptoms; #2 start practising the remedies; and #3 keep your good new habits going), you will soon be able to let go of procrastination and start living a comparison-free life. Packed full of tips, examples and exercises to help you take back control of who you are and what you want, this positive and empowering book is the timely and necessary antidote we all need to the toxic comparison culture we’re living in."
Commissioning editor Emily Barrett said: "Orion Spring is the home of some of the brightest and best wellbeing publishing on the market, and we are very lucky to have Lucy’s empowering and essential book for the modern world joining its ranks. We are all ill-equipped to deal with the pressures social media throws at us on a daily basis, not to mention the comparison that naturally rises to the fore in our work and personal lives – until now! The Comparison Cure will arm readers with the tools necessary to disconnect from what we think we should be doing and who we think we should be, and instead help us champion our individuality and succeed in getting the lives we actually want."
