Taming Crazy, Alicya Perreault

Psychology & Counseling, Religion & Spirtuality, Self-Help & Motivational

After years of battling crippling anxiety, depression and an obsessive-compulsive disorder, Alicya Perreault found herself at a crossroads. She could either accept things as they were and continue on the same path, or she could find another way through and fight. She chose to fight.

Part memoir, part self-help, Taming Crazy – Confessions and Lessons is a journey of strength, vulnerability, courage and laughter. Told with humour, truth and the occasional swear word, she shares the lessons she learned in her quest to climb out of the rabbit hole once and for all, often with hilarious results. 

This book is an honest, raw portrayal of how paralyzing anxiety, OCD, and depression can affect daily life. Most importantly, it is a story of hope.

Filled with emotional and often humorous confessions, she takes us by the hand and shares the real-life struggle to ‘fit in.’ She also shares all the lessons she learned on finding her way through constant worry and paralyzing anxiety while still managing to have a laugh or two along the way.

Taming Crazy is a poignant, moving and inspirational memoir/self-help book that will take readers on a thought-provoking journey while entertaining them at the same time. Taming Crazy is written by author Alicya Perreault and Alicya throughout Taming Crazy will take her readers on a journey through pivotal moments in her life. The journey the reader will encounter is at times heartbreaking because of what Alicya experienced and how she felt, but Alicya’s story is also an uplifting, humorous one too in which Alicya will make you smile thanks to her positive outlook on life and humorous passages. If you are a reader who is looking to read a memoir that is unlike anything you read before and the perfect combination of humor, fact, and poignancy then Taming Crazy is the book for you and should not be missed.

Memoirs combined with poignant themes and self-help themes are my favorite type of books to read. I adore memoirs because they give the reader insight into a person’s fascinating life and when the reader is granted this insight the reader can learn so much from their story, and many readers will be able to learn a lot from Alicya’s story in Taming Crazy. The reader in Taming Crazy will be whisked away on a journey and Alicya is so brilliantly descriptive about herself, her journey and how she conquered her OCD, depression, and anxiety that the reader will feel as if they are right there next to her, learning the life lessons she learns along the way and experiencing every moment she does. The reader, thanks to the author’s impeccable descriptions will feel as if they are right there and thanks to the author’s honesty and exploration of the experiences that shaped her life, the reader won’t be able to resist falling in love with Taming Crazy, and that is why I already have to recommend this gem of a book to read.

Taming Crazy is an emotional but an inspiring book that will introduce the reader to the author, Alicya Perreault and in her book she poignantly shares how after years of battling with anxiety, OCD and depression, she ‘found herself at a crossroads.’ It is here that she decided that she had to fight to combat this and in her book, she shares exactly how she did this. Along the way, the reader will be moved as well as inspired, and so I really do recommend this book to all readers as it is truly stellar.

The profoundness in Taming Crazy is sensational, and many readers will feel a host of different emotions while reading this book. Alicya effortlessly inspires thoughts and feelings in her readers as well as compel them to read from beginning to end. I found myself reading Taming Crazy at an alarming rate because it was captivating as well as engrossing; Alicya’s incredible literature will have you turning the pages frantically, and I adored how she was able to do this. As well as this Alicya has written her story in an incredibly compelling and honest way; her beautiful descriptive writing will make the reader feel as if you are right there alongside her, this is how I felt, and because I did, I felt as if I was with Alicya on her journey and that for me was incredibly enjoyable.

Alicya Perreault is a remarkable person for two reasons; the first is because she is honest and brave to write her story and the second is because she is an exceptionally talented author. Alicya’s excellent writing is a joy to read and flows beautifully throughout so that the reader will feel compelled to read non-stop. The life lessons learned from Alicya in Taming Crazy will help readers better navigate through their own life, and that is so beautiful to me because it is rare to come across a memoir that will not only entertain but also help readers.

Overall Taming Crazy is an this insightful, informative, inspiring book and I would say if you are a reader who is interested in the topics explored in Taming Crazy and coming out the other side, then this book is for you, and so Taming Crazy gets five stars from me!
