Product description

Book Description

The world's foremost writer on the dangers of sugar discovers the hidden value and advantages of being an anxious person.

About the Author

Sarah Wilson is a former journalist and TV presenter, author and activist. She wrote the New York Times bestsellers I Quit Sugar and First, We Make the Beast Beautiful, which Mark Manson described as "the best book on living with anxiety that I've ever read". She is the author of another 11 cookbooks that sell in 52 countries.

Previously she was editor of Cosmopolitan Australia, host of Masterchef Australia and founder of the largest wellness website in Australia, IQuitSugar.com. In May 2018, Sarah closed the business and gave all money to charity. She now builds and enables charity projects that "engage humans with each other" and campaigns on mental health and climate issues. Sarah ranks as one of the top 200 most influential authors in the world and has a combined digital audience of 2.5 million.

Sarah lives minimally, rides a hand-built bike and is known for travelling the world for eight years with one bag.

Sarah's latest book This One Wild and Precious Life is a soul's journey through the complexities of climate change, coronavirus, racial inequalities and our disconnection from what matters...back to life. Sarah hikes around the world, meeting wild voices and experts who provide hopeful wisdoms and vibrant solutions to arrive at what she feels is a true path through the despair...to our better world. This One Wild Precious Life is published September 2020 (Pan Macmillan Australia), December 2020 (US, Harper Collins) and in the UK early 2021.
