"Everyone is able to change. The bigger question is, are you willing?"

“Everyone is able to change. The bigger question is, are you willing?” 


When life gives you lemons, it also gives you ZEST.

Have you, as a grown-up, fallen into the trap of becoming a Groan-up? You know you should try to make the best of things, but more often than not, you don’t know what your “best” is anymore. It’s strange. You used to know. What happened? Was it the years of social conformity?

There is a whole beige generation out there – the bland who've lost their appetite for life and forgotten who they once were – buried under the stifling pressures of adulthood. If only there was a way to unearth your passions, recover the zest for life you once had. Maybe there is.

ZEST is more than just a personal development book. Crammed with positive psychology and the study of human flourishing, ZEST is a cage rattler that encourages you to shake things up and bask in the warmth of glorious individuality.

In it, authors Dr Andy Cope, Gavin Oattes and Will Hussey distil their collective smart, irreverent, inspirational genius, getting readers juiced up to:

  • Rediscover their passion for life
  • Reconnect to the essence of who they are
  • Embrace their quirks, qualities and peculiarities
  • Determine to be the person they always wanted to be
  • Act their shoe size a bit more often

 

ZEST is the literary equivalent of an ECG, buzzing you into life and giving you permission to wreak the right kind of havoc. It challenges readers to believe that their best days are still ahead, to search their soul, to shake things up and to break with conventional wisdom. You only live once. Really? The truth is you only die once, you get to live every single day.  

ZEST is not about pretending to be someone you're not, it's about squeezing every last drop out of who you already are.

The authors’ message is simple. “Life is a short and precious gift. Don’t send it back unwrapped.”
