If The Little Big Things was about Henry's past, The Power in You is about his present and his future. And through understanding his daily experience, Henry teaches us all how best we can live. This book is about right now, and it's about tomorrow. It's about recognising progress, it's about accepting our past to become free of it, it's about living in the now to avoid anxiety. It's future focused on the positive.


Having whipped through Henry’s first book, which talked of his accident, his recovery, and his new-found outlook on life, I was interested what this second book could hold. It takes the form of a Q&A, with a handful of regularly asked questions, answered in great detail by Henry, and ultimately trying to dispense with some advice on how to live life better and appreciate what you’ve got.

It’s another great book, a second chance to be inspired by Henry and I really liked it. I don’t think it quite affected me as much as the first did, I felt like it was retreading familiar ground but with a new structure. However, you could never read this too many times, so I highly recommend it.

Rating: 4 / 5
