Redefining the genre of self-help comedy', Shine is a book about the brevity of life. It contains adult themes of mortality, change, exhaustion, pressure and exhaustion. Thankfully, the bleakness is done with humour and the solutions are entertaining, do-able and uplifting. Your potential is one thing. What you do with it is quite another. Shine is the literary equivalent of ‘ctrl/alt/delete'. All you have to do is read the book, keep an open mind, and apply the learning. Then, as if by magic, you will re-boot with new mental software installed, upgrading you to ‘best possible self'. It's a very simple process that also happens to be not very easy. Because, of course, if being your best self was easy, everybody would be doing it.
