I have read a lot of self-help books that teach how we can become better versions of ourselves. Is This It? by Adam Fitzpatrick comes with the same message, but it carves a niche for itself by being both unique and relatable. In this book, the author shares tips and advice on how we can decide on the things that are really important in our lives.

The author recounts a time in his life when he experienced some circumstances that turned his world upside down. As a result, he questioned his purpose in life and was desperate to return things to normal. And despite his experience as a psychologist, he still struggled to steer things back to the way they were. Fortunately, that experience opened his eyes and taught him how to be contented and courageous to be the best version of himself despite the circumstances. Hence, Mr. Fitzpatrick seeks to teach and encourage readers to accept and celebrate who and where they are, notwithstanding the situations they find themselves in.

While I love that this author didn't try to hide his vulnerabilities and present himself as always on top of his predicaments, what I like most is that his lessons are so relatable. It felt as if he had me in mind while writing the book, and I am sure that most readers would feel the same way. The topics discussed in the book are things that you and I go through every day. Considering the diverse topics discussed in the book, readers would find something that resonates with them easily. I found the author's teaching on consciously living with passion and confidence to be very inspiring.

I must also commend this author's writing style, as it makes the book easy to comprehend and enjoy. His use of a conversational tone helped me to relax and feel the love behind his teachings. I also like that the book features contributions from some experts, health professionals, and successful individuals. They corroborate the author's teachings and provide diverse life examples and lessons that would make the book's lessons more relatable.

Furthermore, some pages of the book contain small sections that highlight the salient points therein. I really liked this aspect of the book because it provided me with messages to reflect on. After reading this book, readers would understand why some people lead happy lives despite disappointments and predicaments, whereas those who seem to have everything remain discontented. I learned how to manage my relationships, process overwhelming emotions, and develop a positive mindset.

In conclusion, I didn't dislike any aspects of this book. I also didn't find a single error in the book and must applaud its exceptional editing. The author's message is well organized, clear, relevant, and relatable. Hence, it gladdens my heart to award Is This It? four out of four stars. I highly recommend it to readers who enjoy self-help books that promote physical, psychological, and conscious strategies to get more life out of life.

The title of this book is certainly tantalising. It sounds like you enjoyed and benefited from it. I must ask though, as someone who has bought many such books, is there anything new and particularly useful that would make it worth my while to purchase this one?

A book that makes you reflect upon its messages is a good one. At the first glance, I would say that this book is not for me, but after reading your review I think it might have some interesting aspects. Thank you for your recommendation!
