Book Review: Allow Yourself to Be a Better Person by Balroop Singh

Posted on Updated on

Today I am sharing a review on a fellow blogger’s book. If you are interested in Balroop Singh’s advice, personal experiences, poetry, and other wonderful content, please check out her blog @ https://balroop2013.wordpress.com/

Allow Yourself To Be A Better PersonAllow Yourself To Be A Better Person by Balroop Singh
As a follower of a blog written by Balroop Singh, I decided to purchase one of her non-fiction books this month: Allow Yourself To Be A Better Person. In this self-help and advice collection, Singh provides readers with ~100 pages of her thoughts and research on how to live a better life. By sharing personal stories of her own life and those of people she’s met, Singh offers ways for readers to consider changing behaviors so that they are happier and stronger individuals.

Every once in a while, it’s good to pick up a book like this; much of the content are things we know or have been taught over the years, but that we also forget. Singh adds context and value behind the words, ensuring we have example and clearer understanding of different interpretations. We know not to take our anger out on others, but we do it still… sometimes unwittingly, and at others, on purpose. Singh reminds us why, shares alternative approaches, and provides a way of reacting to our own emotions with a twist.

I enjoyed reading this extension of her blog so that I could be reminded of a few things that are always a benefit to our lives. It’s obvious that she took a lot of time to craft the structure and advice, and she should be commended. I’m glad I took a chance on reading her book and recommend it to others who are struggling to find a bit of light or think differently about some problems and painful situations in their life.

    Hi James, many thanks for picking up one of my lesser known books to review. Self-help (though the best form of help) seems outdated these days as people like to find the shoulder of therapists and psychiatrists more helpful! I appreciate your review at Goodreads and Amazon. Thank you so much.
    I have read two of your books through Kindle Unlimited and must tell you that they are too good except the dark clouds that always hover over your characters. You remind me of Thomas Hardy.
    Can I reblog this review?

      Hi Balroop!

      Sorry for the delay in responding. I was upstate NY visiting friends and didn’t take my laptop. I couldn’t easily connect / respond on my mobile phone. I’m home now… and catching up.

      You are welcome. I’m glad it was a surprise, and I was very happy to read it. I hope it helps with more readers soon for you too!

      I’m glad you enjoyed my books, as well. I know there are a darker cloud in those, but the mystery series is much lighter. There are bad guys and a few meanies.. but that’s the mystery genre. You’ll find light and positivity too. Thank you for the compliment on Thomas Hardy. Return of the Native is my top 5 favorite books! 🙂

      As for a re-blog, it is yours to do whatever you’d like! I will be sharing it more this week too… happy to help however I can, just let me know!

      Take care.

      J

    Reblogged this on Emotional Shadows and commented:
    When I chose the cover for this book, I was inspired by the symbolism of this image that seems to define life…one step at a time. Personality development is like that.
    When I chose the title for this book, I was convinced that becoming a better person is the choice we make, a promise that could lead us to the path of enlightenment.
    I am delighted that James J. Cudney, an accomplished author found my self-help book worthy of his review. Many thanks Jay, for reading and reviewing Allow Yourself to be a Better Person.

    A fabulous review for Balroop’s book, Jay. I have read her poetry books but not the self help ones. You have made them sound well worth dipping into.
