Product description

Review

Through sharing her innermost thoughts, pain and internal conflict, Ailsa will unsettle you and challenge you at times. And she will offer valuable insights, which no doubt will play a part in the reader's own transformation.

Dr Cate Howell

I admire Ailsa for sharing her deeply personal story with others. Her journey has resonated with me on many levels and I know other readers will feel the same. It is raw, touching and inspiring.

Tania

Whether you are a self-awareness journey-person, someone who enjoys diary/blog reading or simply curious folk, this book helps to keep it real, and lets others in on life where we can all be less than perfect mums, friends, partners or lovers. The vulnerability shown is a strength because everyone is facing their own version of pain/trauma/trouble.

Cate

This book spoke to me. So much of what Ailsa wrote, I could relate to in my life. Not just the parts about body image and weight-loss and the struggle to be perfect but also when she spoke about marriage and the struggle to keep romance alive when you have young kids and your focus is elsewhere. I feel like I've made a new friend through reading this book.

About the Author

Ailsa Robson is a water baby, incessant muser and writer, and someone who always looks for the silver lining. She lives in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia, with her family and their feisty tabby cat. Ailsa is a passionate advocate for Health At Every Size(R) principles and shakes her tail-feather with joy, regardless of how big her butt is. She runs her own private psychotherapy practice, and can often be seen in less than sharp active-wear, during walk and talk therapy sessions with clients. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book feels like a best friend
By Clarissa Terry on 16 January 2019
This book is just what I needed to read. For anyone who has ever struggled with body image, dieting and the conflict between wanting to change your body and also love it... this is a must read. I felt like I had been gently guided onto a path toward embracing myself as I am, without being preached at.

As a new mum myself, I loved Ailsa’s reflections on being a “Perfectly Imperfect” mother. It’s made me feel much less alone on this crazy and beautiful thing we call motherhood.

I couldn’t put this book down. You know that you love a book when you finish and immediately start reading again. Thank you for sharing your journey Ailsa.

5.0 out of 5 stars Open & Honest.......
By JB on 15 January 2019
Perfectly Imperfect hits touch points for so many people, whether you are a partner of a FIFO worker, a mother, a sister, a daughter, someone that has body and/or confidence issues or struggles with a myriad of other ‘things’ that life throws at us and for everyone in-between. It is not just for females and I am sure many males will learn something from reading Ailsa’s book and if nothing else they will get a good laugh at her blogs that are written in an honest but also humorous way. This was a great read. A book that you can pick up and put down as your schedule allows. Keep it sassie!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A moving read
By Renee on 11 June 2019
Memoirs have always been my favourite genre to read. Ailsa's book offered such incredible value to me as a reader as I try to navigate through situations that she has already passed through.

Deeply moving and I incredibly honest.
