Its divided into clear chapters that outline the science, backs it up with steps and summarises each chapter. Its a book you could revert to time an again as you work on new goals.
Sharon reckons someone could easily use this book to self-coach themselves to a new goal. Highly enjoyable!

Drawing on cutting-edge research from behavioural science, Grace Lordan offers immediate actionable solutions and tips that will help you get closer to your dream future, every day. Focusing on six key areas – your time, goal planning, self-narratives, other people, your environment, and resilience – Lordan reveals practical, science-backed hacks that will help you get ahead.
