Product description

Review

"[A]uthor Lauren Martin asks us to think much more, and much more deeply, about moods... In Martin's view, 'moody women' aren't bound to stigmas. They aren't irascible, irrational or hormonal in a vacuum. (Although she argues that hormonally charged reactions are real and should be honored, rather than tamped down and shamed). . . Martin's message is relatable."--The Washington Post

"In her engaging and informative new memoir, The Book of Moods (2020), New York writer Lauren Martin tells of her personal journey from debilitating moodiness and anxiety to greater peace of mind... feels like a conversation with a close friend."--Psychology Today

"In a memoir that is transparent and authentic, Martin walks us through all of the moods...Martin's prose also embraces and celebrates womanhood, just when we need it most."--Shondaland

"In addition to sharing her own struggles with anxiety, angst, and self-doubt, Martin calls upon clinical studies and stories from inspiring women (i.e. Audrey Hepburn, Princess Diana) to offer readers tangible tools for navigating their own whirlwind of emotions. Think of her book as a series of tried-and-true tactics for practicing self-care and emotional stability."--Shape Magazine

"Martin blends science, philosophy, witty anecdotes and effective forms of self-care to show readers that you can turn your worst moods into your best life."--PureWow

"Words of Women founder Lauren Martin delves into the relationship women have with negativity in her smart and often funny self-help tome The Book of Moods. Martin explores her own struggles with anxiety and feelings of inferiority, alongside the science behind moods, to offer practical advice on how to practice effective self-care when negativity starts creeping in."--PopSugar

"A deeply relatable how-to-guide for managing your moods from a woman who gets it. This is a funny, moving memoir filled with so many a-ha moments that I had a hard time putting it down. A real asset for anyone on the quest for better emotion regulation and inner peace."--Laurie Santos, Professor of Psychology at Yale University and Host of The Happiness Lab podcast

"Hilariously witty, unflinchingly honest, and brimming with hope, THE BOOK OF MOODS teaches that with authenticity and a little self-coaching, you can take ownership of your emotions-and your own life. Lauren Martin's contagious curiosity leads straight to what she calls "the cornerstone of chill." And you know what? The journey is half the fun."--Bobbi Brown, bestselling author and renowned makeup artist

"Lauren Martin names those feelings that we all have, explains why we have them, and how we can keep them from defining and dictating our lives. A fascinating, thorough, and truly helpful book. I loved it!"--Sarah Knight, New York Times bestselling author of Calm the F*ck Down

Reviewed in Canada on 10 December 2020
Words of Women has been one of my favourite instagram accounts ever since I first discovered it through a friend of mine (if you don’t already follow this account - DO IT!). The quotes are so wonderful and inspirational. As soon as “The Book of Moods” was released on pre-order I quickly placed my order. And I have not been disappointed! Lauren has a wonderful way with words and has done an incredible job inviting you into her personal journey with her inner most thoughts, moods, and emotions. If you are someone who loves self development I would highly recommend. Lauren is relatable and informative - can’t wait to see what she does next!

This book was the warm, motivational, "I was there too" hug I needed to keep moving forward during a time when I felt stuck, when I had the moods. Of course they keep coming , but now I don't feel lonely anymore. I admire Lauren for all the hard work she put into this book, for following her dreams and motivating us to do that too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful insight on how to better understand your own emotions & moods
Reviewed in the United States on 10 December 2020
The Book of Moods provides an incredibly accurate and relatable look at something so many of us deal with, our moods. And what are moods you ask? Lauren Martin explains it so perfectly on her Words of Women Instagram post that I had to share it here...

"When I talk about #moods I don’t just mean generic emotions. I don’t mean angry or sad or stressed. I mean those feelings we have that we can’t explain. The suffocating feeling at the end of the day when you don’t know what you want or need but you need something to stop whatever is going on inside. I mean the restlessness you feel even though you don’t have anywhere to go. I mean the horrible feeling of looking in the mirror and feeling ugly even though yesterday you thought you looked great. I mean the feeling that something is wrong when everything is right and good and as it should be. These are moods. These feelings that come up and take hold and we don’t know why or what to do about them."

Everyone has these patterns of self-doubt, worries, and emotional triggers, but they can also feel so isolating because they really can come out of nowhere. Backed with research, personal stories, and self-reflection -Martin provides insight on how to better understand your own emotions, and stop them from becoming moods that can stop you in your tracks.

No matter how grateful we are for all the good things we have in our lives, everyday life is also made up of so many of the in-between moments of struggle and self-doubt. Instead of looking at these moments as a way to self-sabotage, we can use them as a powerful vessel to help us reflect, forge ahead, and ultimately transform ourselves and our paths forward.

What I loved most about this book is Martin's honesty. Lauren Martin is most definitely in a different stage of life than me, but even if many of our daily struggles are different, we have something we common, we experience these kinds of emotions. It doesn't matter how old you are or how many truly difficult situations you have endured, even when you regularly reflect on how fortunate you are in so many ways, there are going to be moments you just feel down.

Her quotes and anecdotes and advice normalize how you can be rocking along with work, an important project, etc, and then one small comment can make you question everything. We all have inner struggles and recognizing that these are a thing, can help us acknowledge them and then continue to move forward.

While I read this book on my kindle, as soon as I finished I pre-ordered a physical copy because it is the perfect book to highlight up the wazoo because there is just so much insight here. While we will never be able to control life or the people around us (wishful thinking right?) we do have the power to choose how we react. Emotions are a useful tool when we hold them, reflect on them, and then ultimately let them propel us ahead.

Thank you to Grand Central Publishing for an advanced copy of this book in change for my honest review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. You can read this and other book reviews at genthebookworm.com
