Humour

'What Stefanie Preissner captures so beautifully is that our value and worth are not tied to being agreeable and saying yes to everything that's asked of us. As she shows, we'll be much more likely to succeed on our own terms when we set boundaries and clear priorities.' Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive Global

'No' is the first thing I ever said. It was actually the only thing I said in my first speaking months. Like most children, I was born with an innate ability to set boundaries for myself. 'No.' 'Mine.' I intuitively knew how to practise self-care and self-preservation. Then, at some point, just like my ability to shuffle across the floor on my butt, I forgot how to say no...

Traumatic childhood sleepovers, stressful social occasions, unrealistic demands at work, unwanted second dates and endless offers of cake, in her memoir, award-winning writer Stefanie Preissner leaves no NO unexplored. From the issue of consent, and what happens when a whole country comes together to say Yes, Can I Say NO? is one woman's honest and hilarious take on how re-learning one small word can pave the way to saying YES to who you really are.
