Review: My favourite things about the book are: (1) the genuinely useful life lessons; (2) the tone of voice (if you have heard Stuart interviewed or been lucky enough to meet him you will know what I mean); and (3) the presentation, which is very suited to children and young adults - I would actually really like some of the black pages with large white lettering as posters for myself! "All of us are unique" "Don't be afraid to surround yourself with all kinds of different people" "In every failure there is a lesson to be learned" "Without dreaming you never know what the possibilities could be" "It's so important to be grateful for the simple and small things". Last weekend I read the Happiness Advantage by Havard positive psychologist Shawn Achor and a lot of what I read in that book came through in Silence Is Not An Option. Clearly I could never get my 9 year old and 12 year old sons to read a dense positive psychology book and I am grateful to Stuart for making these concept so accessible to children and young adults. But a major part of the beauty of this book is not just the tools taught, but the sharing of Stuart's own experiences and the way he talks about his brother and his grief. I felt very privileged to be able to share this with my sons.

Review: My teenage children and I loved this book. Full of inspiring and motivational ideas, suitable for all young people in particular (although great advice for all ages). The visuals are also very appealing. The author does not "preach" but engages the reader to really think and personalise the ideas discussed to their own situation, and to set their goals and consider their aspirations, as well as how to turn what seem like setbacks and failures into positive outcomes.

  • Waterstones Rethinking Silence, Voice and Agency in Contested Gendered Terrains

    Price: £39.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Global and local contestations are not only gendered, they also raise important questions about agency and its practice and location in the twenty-first century. Silence and voice are being increasingly debated as sites of agency within feminist research on conflict and insecurity. Drawing on a wide range of feminist approaches, this volume examines the various ways that silence and voice have been contested in feminist research, and their impact on how agency is understood and performed, particularly in situations of conflict and insecurity. The collection makes an important and timely contribution to interdisciplinary feminist theorizing of silence, voice and agency in global politics. Interrogating the intellectual landscape of existing debates about agency, silence and voice in an increasingly unequal and conflict-ridden world, the contributors to this volume challenge the dominant narratives of agency based on voice or speech alone as a necessary precondition for understanding or negotiating agency or empowerment. Many of the authors have engaged in field research in both the Global South and North and bring in-depth and diverse gendered case studies to their analysis, focusing on the increasing importance of examining silence as well as voice for understanding gender and agency in an increasingly embattled and complicated world. This book will contribute to and deepen existing discussions of agency, silence and voice in development, culture and gender studies, political economy, postcolonial and de-colonial scholarship as well as in the field of International Relations.
