LYSNEY O’BRIEN

HOST: AMSTERDAM

Why did you get involved with Shelf Help and what can people expect at your events?: Towards the end of last year I moved from London to live in Amsterdam and start a new life there. I have always wanted to be part of a book club but some how never got round to it! I have recently discovered the shelf help club and would love to form and host this book club from the new country I now call home sharing the mission of the community.

What's your favourite self-help book, and why?: Big magic, by Elizabeth Gilbert. I love her story telling, and find the book super inspiring. I also very much enjoyed reading Chloe brotheridge, the anxiety solution having suffered from varying degrees of anxiety throughout my adult life (I’m 33 years old) I found this book useful in understand what anxiety is as well as useful techniques to dealing with it.
