How Do We Know We're Doing It Right?
'Pandora is my personal guru on all things relating to the zeitgeist. How lucky you are that she can now be yours too.' DOLLY ALDERTON
Modern life is full of choices. We're told that happiness lies within and we can be whoever we want to be. But with endless possibility comes a feeling of restlessness; like we're somehow failing to live our best life. What does doing it right even look like? And why do so many women feel like they're getting it wrong?
From faster-than-fast fashion to millennial burnout, the explosion of wellness to the rise of cancel culture, Pandora Sykes interrogates the stories we've been sold and the ones we tell ourselves. Wide-ranging, thoughtful and witty, How Do We Know We're Doing It Right? explores the anxieties and myths that consume our lives and the tools we use to muddle through.
So sit back and take a breath. It's time to stop worrying about the answers - and start delighting in the questions.

'Energetic and compelling' OLIVIA SUDJIC
The curated collection of books on offer via Black and Beech is incredible, and this is no exception. Ive just finished reading this offering from Sykes. There is much to think about where the questions are so delicately yet provocatively posed. Each chapter is akin to an essay addressing a different topic. Excellent book well worth a read 🖤.
