A NATIONAL BESTSELLER - A hilarious and heartbreaking memoir-in-remedies by a self-described “professional soul-searcher” that details a journey of self-discovery through over 160 tonics, seminars, regimens, and transformative therapies.

“In a world full of spiritual seekers, Megan Griswold is an undisputed All-Star. She has spent her life examining her existence in patient, courageous, and microscopic detail, and now she has written about her search with tender and comic honesty. What a delightful journey!”

—Elizabeth Gilbert, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Big Magic and Eat, Pray, Love

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 let herself shatter, 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. With a voice that is at once intimate and hilarious, Megan captures the openness and honesty necessary for people to take a new path in life.

“Griswold walks us through four decades of vulnerability, humiliation and ferocious effort to make meaning out of misfortune.”Goop

“Megan Griswold’s fantastic memoir is part-medicine for our time, part-balm for our collective wounds, part-instruction manual. Unexpectedly hilarious, self-deprecating, moving, and a story for all women in this time, I couldn’t put it down. I read it aloud to my fiancé, to our daughter, to my friends. It’s the book that makes you jog the elbow of the person sitting next to you and say, ‘You’ve GOT to read this.’ You’ve got to read this. Megan is in touch with where the rest of us may have limped off course.”—Alexandra Fuller, New York Times bestselling author of Leaving Before the Rains Come

“Megan Griswold’s intimate, chatty, marvelous voice scooped me up on the first page of The Book of Help and she never left my side until the last. This open hearted, soul searching, intensely readable memoir reminds us that we are far from alone on our journey and how ever much we might want them—there are no finish lines, just resting stops where we can heal, learn, gather strength and, most importantly, keep going.”—Isabel Gillies, New York Times bestselling author of Happens Every Day

The Book of Help is a homecoming of healing. If you think you know what a memoir is, this book subverts everything you know. In her honest, openhearted prose, Griswold examines her life through remedies, from the simple to the wild.”—Nina McConigley, author of Cowboys and East Indians, winner of the PEN Open Book Award

“An inventive, deeply original plummet into self-exploration that is part emotional repair manual, part memoir and entirely wonderful.”—Amanda Stern, author of Little Panic: Dispatches from an Anxious Life

“An all-night sleepover ouija board/tarot card/magic eight ball session of delight.”—Pam Houston, author of Deep Creek 

“By turns funny and aching, The Book of Help is Eat, Pray, Love on speed. Not even the Buddha was as determined as Griswold to find inner peace.”—Patricia Marx, author of Let’s Be Less Stupid

“Griswold’s debut…provides an exhaustive look at alternative treatments, but wrapped up in that narrative is a personal tale about her own quest to find comfort and healing from the scars of her youth and the tragedy of her divorce….As remedies, the results were decidedly mixed, but vicariously living them through her telling makes for a fascinating book. Soul-searching has never been more comprehensive.”—Kirkus Reviews

“When Griswold discovers that her husband has an addiction to phone sex and prostitutes, her mother tells her this is all good material. Given this, readers won’t likely blame the author for seeking her own answers….This [book] will appeal to like-minded seekers.”Booklist

“Griswold’s vulnerability and deeply honest writing will captivate and bolster readers in their own search for improvement.”—Publishers Weekly
