Description

I really enjoyed the first 80-odd pages of the book, and found myself thinking 'this author is a Wise Person'. The book is nothing startling or new and a bit too much about motherhood for me (not to mention slightly middle class) but it was pleasant enough. The way she described her son's illness making life feel unreal was just one example of human feelings very well described. True, authentic behaviour – the patchwork of thousands of tiny experiences and moods and conversations and reactions – is much more important than clever taglines and catchy campaigns. The author wisely acknowledges her privilege in having had the funds and opportunity to set up her own business, as it really was built from scratch.

Anya shares her challenges and her high points and I totally agree with her thoughts on being a woman in a male dominated industry. I guess that’s something very real to most who have been feeling languished in recent years (yes, it’s been that long). An advocate of British design and arts Anya is NED of the British Fashion Council, and Emeritus Trustee of the Royal Academy of Arts and the Design Museum.It isn't a terrible book - I'm sure it will appeal to and make a difference to some readers - it just wasn't particularly relevant to me. This witty, inspiring book is a masterclass on running a global business (handbags and much more) and making a difference in the world (I’m Not a Plastic Bag, Chubby Hearts over London and many more. It's insightful and authentic and feel-good - and one of those books that you find yourself thinking about and quoting from regularly in all sorts of contexts, whether you're thinking about work or marriage or parenting (or shampoo. Even though she covers mental health, daily routine and lifestyle, love and friendship, society, work and pretty much everything else in between - I personally enjoyed the parenting section and parts of the book perhaps the most. The details really made it from the flowery protective wraps, the music, the vintage furniture to the iconic posters ‘Good for your head’.

I have come to the realisation that a lot of the doubt I feel - and I know I am not alone - comes from being surrounded by images of unrealistic ideals as defined by other people. As soon as I saw the title, I immediately wondered what in the world that this book could possibly be about. Entrepreneurs are more doers than reading through tons of small print (hat's what you hire lawyers etc for). This is an autobiography/memoir (not sure) which also of course acts like a rather unusually helpful self-help book.Anya Hindmarch is a world famous businesswoman, entrepreneur, CEO, and a mother to five children (3 of whom are her step children who she's looked after since they were small). To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. And that's because our issues with food aren't really issues with food: they're issues with feelings and emotions, and what food has come to mean to us, whether that's comfort or love or guilt or reward or control or lack of it. THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER'I've been waiting for this book all my life and everyone needs to read it' Claudia WinklemanAnya Hindmarch is a mother of five, stepmother, entrepreneur and globally renowned businesswoman. As a designer in the branding industry, I thought it was interesting what Anya said about branding, she believes the word ‘brand’ should be replaced with the word ‘behaviour’.
