Wow. This is completely concise, honest, matter of fact and brilliantly positive. I believe it could be so helpful for so many people. It's a great length too.

Ryan Nance - Disability Support Worker and Advocate, Sydney

Excellent "I genuinely feel that the experiences, learnings, and guidance offered through this book are universal to the human experience, and will resonate with each reader in a unique way. I personally had a strong connection with a few of the writer's learnings, and these connections helped me to not only gain a deeper understanding of my own situation, but also instilled in me the confidence to continue a process of change that was necessary for my own mental health and wellbeing. I have shown this book to various clients and colleagues in the human services sector, and have consistently received similar responses. I'm almost certain in my belief that this book will resonate with every reader, and the shared learnings will play a key role in their own process of change."

Elysha Camden - Vancouver

Inspiring and remarkably helpful. Ryan's writing transcends his own personal experience to provide insightful and personal experience and wisdom to others. Whether one is at a point in their life trying to cope with the adversity of pain through an accident or illness or as a blueprint to provide touchstones in coping with physical or emotional pain his guide is an outstanding body of work told with reality, honesty and humour.

Alex Peterson - Wellington

A unique contribution to the health and wellness space. I was initially sceptical that I would be reading yet another generic self-help book, though I was genuinely suprised to the contrary. Ryan's guide effectively summarises a complex road map for navigating through hard times, without being at all preachy. Highly recommended.

About The Author

Hey there, I'm Ryan. I'm 32 years old, and live in Melbourne, Australia. Thanks for visiting my website and purchasing the guide. Having spent various periods of time enduring and overcoming chronic illness or injury, I had long been frustrated by the failure of conventional medicine to provide answers, or any genuine help. After a strange and remarkable accident in 2012 involving a statue of Shiva I was thrown into an abyss of constant pain and suffering. On my 18-month journey back to recovery the lessons I learned along the way were so effective for me in coping with and overcoming my ailments that I felt compelled to share them with others.
