“The Art of Being by Danielle Allen is a collection of anecdotes, personal accounts, poems, and life lessons delivered in short, easy-to-digest nuggets of wisdom. Shared in first person from the author’s perspective, it gives readers some great food for thought about how to successfully navigate the trials and tribulations of life and how to just “be.” The interconnectedness of the virtues discussed is also great “ponder fodder” for minds that enjoy chewing on things.”

“Inspiring, uplifting, and utterly motivational, The Art of Being is impeccable.”
– Whitney G., New York Times & USA Today Best Selling Author
“The Art of Being is part self-help, part inspirational, and part devotional. If you add all of the parts of the book together then you realize that it has taken you on a journey to find your true and authentic self. The Art of Being isn't your typical over the top self-help from a guru that makes you feel as if you're being preached to and/or made to believe that everything will turn around as soon as you finish the book. "There's freedom in realizing that you don't have to experience life the way you've been told to experience it. My journey is mine. Your journey is yours." This is the true beauty of The Art of Being. It is all about self; Self-discovery, self-acceptance, and most of all, self-love. It forces you to look deep in the mirror and analyze who you are, what you think about you, and then what you allow. Some books come along right when you need them the most and The Art of Being is one of them. It is one that can be visited many times on your journey of becoming the you that you want to be. Your answers to some of the questions posed will change over time and this will document your growth. Danielle Allen is a prolific fiction writer so this was a risk. One can easily tell that she put her heart and soul into it and as a result she has produced a book that I truly believe every woman should read.”
