Your reviews help others

I want to thank everyone who has been kind enough to buy my book Cerebral Palsy: A Story ‘Finding the Calm after the Storm’ from Amazon UK and Amazon US.

But sadly, unless you’ve reached their spending criteria, which on Amazon.com is $50, and £40 on Amazon UK you are not eligible to forward a review for the book, even though your sale is a verified purchase.

If you can’t leave a review on Amazon, I would be happy for you to forward your review to me at ilana@thecpdiary.com and I will put your review on my Diary. Although it won’t be on Amazon, it will still be read by thousands of people around the world and that will help others decide on my book.

My thoughts are that if you bought the book through Amazon, it should be compulsory for you to leave a review; you leaving a review should have nothing to do with how much money you’ve spent.

I would be grateful if you could help me to continue to help others by sending me your review if you’re not able to review it on Amazon. The more you review the book, the more the book will get out and continue to help others find emotional and mental relief. I have been told my book is completely relevant for the Covid-19 era and beyond.

What started out as something to help me through my own trauma growing up with a disability that I didn’t know I had, is still helping me and will help you too. I would be grateful for your help with you continuing to post your reviews.

If you have any problems, please feel free to get in touch with me through the contact form.

Stay safe and well.

  1. I would encourage everyone who has purchased your book, but who are unable to leave a review on Amazon, to send you their review so that you can publish it on your website.

    Your book is a book for our times and it deserves the widest audience.

    1. Thank you. This has come from others telling me and I believe the same to be true. It has become even more relevant because we have the coronavirus and because we’re in lock down.

      There is a lot for us to mentally and emotionally deal with right now, particularly at this time. The irony is that my book has become even more relevant for our times.

      I hope people will see what you see and leave a review, so others may be guided also. With 10+ years of a website behind me, the evidence is clear. What I do works and it’s helpful, even more so in these times.

      Fingers crossed on that. Thank you.

  2. Cerebral Palsy: A Story ‘Finding the Calm After the Storm’ is an awesome book. It’s fullness has made me a habitual reader.

    Let’s lift each other up, please write a review!

    1. Thanks Tim. I’m glad. I agree we must lift each other up, particularly in these difficult times.

      Yes, help me, help others and write a review.
