I found myself procrastinating when it came to reading The Beauty of Discomfort (Harper Collins, 2017). The subtitle reads ‘how what we avoid is what we need”. That made me uncomfortable. I was reluctant to hear the message. But eventually I started reading and I couldn’t put the book down.

Amanda Lang has created a compelling, easy read with a strong message. Tough times make you tougher. You learn the most when the stakes are highest. I know she’s right. We all know she’s right…but choosing to dive in head first into an uncomfortable situation is much easier said than done.

This is a good read for just about anyone. Whether you are facing tough times at work or just embarking on a new career, you’ll learn something from this book.
