What Doesn't Kill You: Fifteen Stories of Survival [9781783527649]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

There's a myth about the famous and successful that paints them as godlike characters leading spotless, unblemished lives.

But under the surface you'll find that these people were often shaped by great personal struggle, whether with loss, eating disorders, alcoholism or childhood trauma.

They just didn't become defined by it.

In this collection, writers, from a beloved comedian and an ingenious artist to a distinguished academic and a polar explorer, share the stories of their secret battles and take you on a journey to the darkest recesses of their lives.

And as they face their deepest fears, the authors will grapple with some of the questions that haunt us all.


AUTHOR: Elitsa Dermendzhiyska went from stock investing in Washington DC to a technology incubator in south-east Asia, then joined the rat race in London and promptly burned out while building a tax software business. To avoid actually getting therapy, she spent the next two years interviewing therapists, psychiatrists, NHS clinicians, authors, artists and entrepreneurs from South London to Silicon Valley - this book is the result.
