Joy Parker (Guest Review) - 20 Mar, 2022
This is a really lovely book. It uses mosaics Prerana has made and observational photographs taken during her creative 'me time' as she calls it. This 'me time' is the well of creativeness which allows you to assess your life differently, see round obstacles and reevaluate what is really important to you. 'A Different Life, Piece by Piece" is refreshingly un-preachy, charming and also deeply practical. It will help you take that first step to a more contented life.

This book was a joy to read, Prerana takes you on a journey helping you to explore your own creativity, sharing pictures of her lovely mosaics along the way. I have been left feeling very positive and interested in how I can take a different approach to problem solving.

The author has produced a very unique book which I found thoroughly enjoyable. I like how it gives practical advice on helping people find their creative side and confronts the stereotype of what creativity is as it is clear after reading this that we all have a creative side waiting to be unlocked! I would highly recommend this well written book.

Prerana’s ethical views and humane nature
has worked well with her helpful tips about how to change slightly to think differently.
Her management training, coupled with her artist’s vision and excellent quality of this book makes gives it a feed good value.
