THE BOOK OF HELP is the story of one woman’s life-long quest for love, connection, and peace of mind: 15,000 hours, four decades, six continents, and 290 trial remedies.
“In a world full of spiritual seekers, Megan Griswold is an undisputed All-Star.”
—Elizabeth Gilbert #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Eat Pray Love
Megan Griswold is passionate about helping others find their own path, having learned from her own. She has logged over 15,000 hours journeying through remedies from the simple to the wild— from the glaciers of Patagonia and the psycho-tropics of Brazil, to academia, the Ivy League, and the study of Eastern medicine.
In THE BOOK OF HELP: A Memoir in Remedies (Rodale Books; $26.99; On-sale: January 22, 2019) Megan reports from the fringe, the alternative, from the backcountry to the front, in stories that trace her lifelong attempt to become a more loving, more awake, more durable person in an increasingly complex world.
