‘The book’s motto – give yourself a break! – is perhaps the most radical resolution of the year’ Elle

It’s time to give yourself a break!

You’ve been bossing yourself around for too long. Where has it gotten you? Maybe it’s time you follow the example of the French and let it go. Allow yourself to be angry, be tired, be silly, be passionate – to give yourself a break, and just simply be.

Fabrice Midal offers us a new solution to the perennial problem of our too-much, too-fast modern life. It’s OK, he urges us, to say no. It’s fine to quit the things that don’t fulfill you. It’s necessary, in fact, to give yourself a break and say, simply, c’est la vie.

A joyful plea.
ELLE
A joyful plea, a call to reaffirm our inner-freedom in spite of other demands. It's a plea that runs against modern society's harshness and the tyranny of perfectionism. The book's motto - give yourself a break! - is perhaps the most radical resolution of the year
Elle
Fabrice Midal's book is powerful, yet playful, challenging and at the same time comforting. It can transform the way you look at your life as a whole, and the way you live this moment.
