About the book:

Collectively, we’ve been going through a rough time. Between the global COVID-19 pandemic, concerns about the future of our planet, and the economic difficulties many are facing, it’s no wonder that we’re having a hard time finding the energy to carry on. How to Breathe While Suffocating is a lesson in how to recover that energy, find our way to our passions, and start living life once again. Inside, motivational speaker and social media personality Bruce Brackett tells all, revealing how he overcame abuse, neglect, bullying, addiction, and more. It wasn’t an easy road, but along the way he learned some truly invaluable lessons. This book—at once a deeply personal account and a universally applicable guide—is like a shortcut for readers on their own healing and recovery journeys. What Brackett learned the hard way, we can learn the easy way, thanks to his unflinching new book. This book is excellent for anyone who is struggling to get back to their pre- pandemic motivation levels, who is on the road to addiction recovery, or who may just feel a sense of emptiness and lack of purpose in life. Brackett distills the lessons learned on his own bumpy road to fulfill- ment, presenting his story and weaving in easy-to-remember mantras that make How to Breathe While Suffocating a valuable source of inspiration. Best of all, readers will learn that they aren’t alone as they work overtime just to stay afloat in troubled times. Sometimes what we need most is understanding and compassion, and Bruce Brackett provides just that. As we relate this story to our own experiences, we can begin to break out of our self-isolation, realizing that we, too, can step back into the world and go after our dreams.
