Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of The Year of Living Danishly: How to make big decisions, be more resilient, and change your life for good.
Having spent the last few years in Denmark uncovering the secrets of the happiest country in the world, Helen Russell knows it's time to move back to the UK. She thinks. Maybe. Or maybe that's a terrible idea. Like many of us, she suffers from chronic indecision and a fear of change. So she decides to give herself a year for an experiment: to overhaul every area of her life, learn how to embrace change and become a lean, mean decision-making machine.
From how to cope with changing work lives and evolving relationships to how we feel about our bodies, money and well-being, Helen investigates the benefits of new beginnings, the secrets of decisive people and what makes changes last - and uncovers the practical life lessons we can all use to thrive when change is afoot and inject some freshness and magic if it's not.

The Year of Living Danishly was much better

After listening to The Year of Living Danishly, I decided to try this audio book too. I really loved the Danishly book. It was very fun, funny, comforting (hygge style) and educational. I found learning about the Danish culture fascinating. So, I decided to give this book a try too. The author is witty and the book is researched in a fun way (just like the Danishly book) but it is a re-run of gazillion self-help books that have come before it, unfortunately. I will continue to follow Helen Russell's writing though. I do like her style, just hope for more interesting content in the future.
Lucy Price-Lewis is a lovely narrator. I could listen to her every day.

Great ideas and insights

I loved this book as much as her previous one, The Year of Living Danishly. There are great ideas and practical actiin items here, and the whole thing is kept from being too woo woo by her fabulously funny sense of humor and writing style. Loved it.

Helpful and a good listen

If you've listen to/ read Helen Russell's previous book a year of living danishly, then you'll understand her writing style and the way she incorporates elements of her life with Lego Man and little Red into the factual evidence and interviews with experts, which I found fantastic and a great way to follow along more on a learning journey rather than a book simply trying to teach you a new why of thinking. It feels like you're learning alongside Helen, which I found highly enjoyable.
I love the concepts and ideas discussed in Leap Year and feel that anyone looking to work on the big changes in their lives or simply their attitude towards change will thoroughly enjoy it and come away feeling like they've learnt something.
