Publisher's Summary

Put a stop to self-sabotage and overcome your fears so that you can gain the confidence you need to reach your goals and become your own best friend.

Too many people seem to believe that they are not allowed to put themselves first or go after their own dreams out of fear of being selfish or sacrificing others' needs. The Self-Love Experiment rectifies this problem. Whether you want to achieve weight loss, land your dream job, find your soul mate, or get out of debt, it all comes back to self-love and accepting yourself first. Shannon Kaiser learned the secrets to loving herself, finding purpose, and living a passion-filled life after recovering from eating disorders, drug addictions, corporate burnout, and depression.

Shannon walks you through her own personal experiment, a simple plan that compassionately guides you through the process of removing fear-based thoughts, so you can fall in love with life. If you want to change your outcome in life, you have to change your daily habits and perspective. Shannon takes you on this great journey into self-love and true self-acceptance.

Not for me.

Perhaps it would have been a better book to read rather than listen to so that I could hear it in my own voice. The author’s voice and deliverance was distracting for me personally so I found that I could only stand it in small chunks.

Aside from the performance, I felt like the entire book was circumventing something but never really getting there. Almost like an “I did it, and you can too!” book. I found it a bit repetitive and even contradictory at times. There were some good pieces of advice but mainly fluff mixed with personal stories I found it hard to connect with and motivational quotes.

Absolutely awful

Such a waste of time. Takes forever to get to any point. Literally could skip chapters up to 5 before the story begins. Prior to that, she uses 4 chapters to tell the audience about her writing the darn book.

Loved it!

It’s really helpful and I see more love in myself than I ever have before. And these principles and real life experiences have helped me to see it’s so relatable. And while some are challenging than others I know that I have started something life changing and transformative. Thank you so much for writing this book Shannon! You are a beautiful wonderful soul! Much love, Nikki

Huge waste

This book reads like one long and rambling epilogue. I kept waiting for it to start and it was just repetition. Gave up 4 chapters in.

Hard to listen to.

She spent four chapters talking about the struggle to write the book and her feelings about writing the book but never actually started reading what was in the book, and I lost patience waiting for the guts of it.

Great read but for a very specific audience

I enjoyed the book and learned a lot but had difficulty connecting the authors specific experiences with my own.

Pretentious

The author lacks substance and repeats themselves frequently. It was tough to listen to. Very pretentious. Very unhelpful.

It’s not her, it’s me

I really just couldn’t get into the book. I thought it had some great messages but I never got hooked on it. Was wondering if I was just not in the right state of mind.

This is a wonderful book!

Shannon is an amazing writer. This book really gets you thinking and has helped me to be more compassionate towards myself and my journey. Shannon has a nice, soothing voice and I cannot speak highly enough about this.

Very Powerful

Shannon Kaiser has an amazing voice and a wonderful way of telling her story. She is honest, she is open and she makes you believe that self-love can happen for you too. I am so excited and have already started my journey of self-love with Shannon's powerful message.
