Rosie’s #BookReview of #NonFiction #SelfHelp PEP TALK by Ken Hancott @TarragonKen

PEP TALK by Ken Hancott

4 stars

PEP Talk explores the subject of positivity, empowerment and performance. Ken Hancott has written a book that focuses on positive psychology and how to implement it into our everyday lives.

Written in easy to read chapters using a conversational style, Hancott uses examples from his own experiences to explain his principles and ideas.

How much any reader will get from this book will depend on any previous reading around the subject. For instance, over the years I’ve read quite a bit, so for me, the most interesting chapter was the one about PEP filters and how to apply them. It also depends on your own learning preferences, I wasn’t particularly a fan of Hancott’s personal examples and stories as I’m someone who prefers to get to the actual ‘how to…’ steps. However, other readers may enjoy the examples and be able to empathise with them.

Written well before the current world Corona virus crisis, I can see that this book could offer some much needed positive support to people who are struggling with the mass of fear and negativity which has spread amongst us all.
