Jean Fryer Recommends Books to Help You Achieve Your New Year’s Resolutions

On the Classy Bird blog, Penguin Books South Africa’s Jean Fryer recommended books that will help you achieve your New Year’s resolutions – from eating better and getting more exercise, to travelling more and finally publishing that book.

For travel inspiration she recommends, among other titles, Martinique Stilwell’s Thinking Up a Hurricane and Travel Guide to Maputo and Southern Mozambique by Bridget Hilton-Barber. Her diet and exercise prompt is Luc Evenepoel’s Dr Luc’s Promise and her go-to guide to achieve success in life and work is Navigating Your Career: 5 Steps to Success in the New World of Work by Graeme Coddington and Kerry Dawkins.

If you’ve always wanted to publish a book, but need that extra push, Fryer recommends Get Your Book Published in 30 (relatively) Easy Steps by Basil van Rooyen and Die Afrikaanse skryfgids compiled by Riana Scheepers and Leti Kleyn.

Our publicist, Jean Fryer, gives her recommendations for the New Year.

The fireworks have faded, the leftovers are finished and photos of the last holiday of 2012 adorn your Facebook page. So now what?

Alas, it’s time to head back to reality and to face up to those resolutions that were so easy to proclaim to family and friends but may not be as easy to stick to. Never fear though, Penguin Books have a host of titles to help you achieve your goals and to make 2013 the best year yet.
