Heard about this book on public broadcasting in Australia. Concise, well written and helpful. Not finished yet but already implementing tips and strategies in my day to day. A practical book aimed at those affected and the people in their lives. The title says it all. Practical and empowering. Wish I knew about this years ago! It's real, the damage it can do is huge and there are practical things you can do to cope. Manage it and live better. Start now.
