I am incredibly excited to be part of the blog tour for this very inspirational book and it’s author Curly Martin. I would like to thank Teresa at The Book Publicist for inviting me to be part of this tour. 


Full of tips, tools, techniques, & the secrets Curly Martin used to overcome cancer. How she now lives a passionate, exciting, healthy, wealthy, happy life. Curly Martin was diagnosed with breast cancer, and an aggressive form of lymphatic cancer in 1992 and she was given nine months to live. At that time she became homeless and was unemployed. This book is all about her fascinating and funny 20 year journey from cancer to coaching. Since the terminal diagnosis, she has become an international bestselling author of, The Coaching Handbook Series of books. She is a highly sought-after international speaker, a pioneer of life coach training and the founder of a very successful training company, Achievement Specialists Limited. She intuitively combines her personal experiences with accepted methodologies and cutting edge innovations, to create exciting, very entertaining and effective approaches to living a healthy, happy and successful life.

My Thoughts:

Curly Martin was given 9 months to live after being diagnosed with cancer, this was in 1992, well they got that bit wrong.  This book tells how Curly has made her journey from when diagnosed to where she is today.  It is a glimpse into her life as she went through treatment and the various therapies, remedies and also the self-help techniques she has used, and still uses today. She has very candidly shared her feelings, experiences and thoughts as she dealt with what life has thrown at her physically, emotionally and mentally.

This is not a sad book at all, instead Curly has managed to inject her positive outlook of life into the pages of this book.  Her personality shines through and so does her sense of humour.  Cancer did not beat her, instead it seems to have momentarily paused her at the age of 39 years old, before she was up and embarking on a new path.  As she recovered from her treatments for cancer, she began to change things in her life, changed her habits and lifestyle also meant a change in her perspective. 

This book is broken down into manageable chapters, with a brief summary of what she has discussed at the end of each, these summaries are handy little pointers.  It is full of various tips that she has learnt along the way, from making notes at hospital appointments to asking questions during treatment.  Some of her pointers and positive advice are things anyone could use in their normal lives. All the way through she is telling of her journey, what did and didn’t work for her.  Also promoting what works for one, doesn’t necessarily work for others, as well as the fact that the treatment she received in the 90’s is different compared to today.

This is a very well laid out book that shows how one woman has taken cancer by the horns and used her experiences of it,she has turned it into a positive.  She was never going to let it beat her.  I do not think for one moment that this was an easy, but as i read this book I could feel her positive energy.  

I wish to send my thanks to Curly for sending me a copy of her book.  I would like to wish Curly all the very best in her health, happiness and future.
