LOS ANGELES TIMES BESTSLLER * WINNER OF THE NAUTILUS BOOK AWARD * "In a world full of spiritual seekers, Megan Griswold is an undisputed all-star. What a delightful journey!"--Elizabeth Gilbert, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Big Magic and Eat, Pray, Love The Book of Help traces one woman's life-long quest for love, connection, and peace of mind. A heartbreakingly vulnerable and tragically funny memoir-in-remedies, Megan Griswold's narrative spans four decades and six continents--from the glaciers of Patagonia and the psycho-tropics of Brazil, to academia, the Ivy League, and the study of Eastern medicine. Megan was born into a family who enthusiastically embraced the offerings of New Age California culture--at seven she asked Santa for her first mantra and by twelve she was taking weekend workshops on personal growth. But later, when her newly-wedded husband calls in the middle of the night to say he's landed in jail, Megan must accept that her many certificates, degrees and licenses had not been the finish line she'd once imagined them to be, but instead the preliminary training for what would prove to be the wildest, most growth-insisting journey of her life.

A hilarious memoir-in-remedies by a self-described “professional soul-searcher” that details a journey of self-discovery through more than 160 tonics, seminars, regimens, and transformative therapies. From an early age, Megan Griswold was set on a path of looking outside herself to learn about herself. At birth her parents found a Christian Science practitioner for her, at age seven she asked Santa for a mantra, and at 12 she started taking workshops on personal growth. Her over-the-top existential curiosity eventually led her to outdoor leadership training in Patagonia where she met her husband. Their marriage was not without challenges, and after he was arrested, Megan’s world was shattered. Rather than shatter along with it, she embarked on a journey of self-discovery with renewed vigor. The Book of Help is the story of the 15,000 hours and 160 different remedies, therapies, and modalities that Megan went through, poking and prodding herself to feel better and be better. She explores a past-life family tree, gets trained in Five Element Acupuncture, becomes a doula, takes Ayahuasca, does a water fast, and sees psychics and a bevy of therapists. With a voice that is at once intimate and hilarious, Megan captures the openness and honesty necessary when taking a new path in life. Even if you open the book only with curiosity, you'll close it with a new understanding of yourself.

Policing is a consuming profession with incredibly high elements of stress. Research suggests that police divorce rates are more than double the national average of ordinary marriages. The spouse's fear of physical danger, adjusting to shift work, transfers and changes in the officers' personality are only a few of the contributing factors, but the most crucial problem is the breakdown of communication within the relationship. From the beginning of the officers' careers they are trained to control their emotions, and thus are accused of being cold-hearted. Spouses agree that law enforcement officers grapple with the real-life horrors on the job and that the bitter belief that 'cops don't cry' is sadly untrue.
