Craving a quick fix. When the recession turned her life upside down, Stephanie Krikorian had to reinvent her life...and fast. She started ghostwriting self-help books for women. Between writing and researching she realized that everywhere she looked there was AFOG (another freaking opportunity for growth). Soon she wasn't just writing each book; she was living them. This was the start of a ten-year zen bender of dieting, dating, journaling, meditating, and Marie-Kondo-ing on a quest for that ultimate self-help high.
Fifty and fabulous. Stephanie Krikorian spent her forties trying all of the dating hacks to find love and respect, all of the diets to build self-esteem in a new body, and all of the spiritual guidance to become centered through self-care. On the brink of turning fifty she realized that being better wasn't what she craved; it was something else altogether.
A Self-confidence book for women. For anyone tired of promises to change everything in just thirty days, this book is a breath of fresh air. Zen Bender is the story of one woman's journey to radical acceptance, with some questionable advice along the way. A witty, moving, insightful story, the woman behind bestselling celebrity self-help books shares her story of being hooked on the self-help fix for a decade before learning that all the self-help in the world won't help you trust your gut.
Readers who enjoyed self-confidence books for women like The Universe Has Your Back, The Self-Love Experiment, or The Gifts of Imperfection; will love Zen Bender: A Decade-Long Enthusiastic Quest to Fix Everything (That Was Never Broken).
