An unforgettable memoir and manifesto for living, from the woman who redefined magazines for the 21st century

'Truly compelling.' Cathy Rentzenbrink

'Breathtaking ... I loved it.' Fern Britton

'Courageous. Inspiring. Hopeful.' Alastair Campbell

Having suffered the unimaginable loss of her first husband and child, Lindsay Nicholson rewrites her story to become Britain's most successful lifestyle magazine editor. But when a would-be suicide runs in front of her car, the pages of her picture-perfect life fall apart once more.

In just one year, Lindsay loses her marriage, job and home, and is even arrested. Suicidal and suffering from profound PTSD, she tries medication, therapy and New Age courses - until she finds the answer in the pages of her former magazines. Life isn't about being perfect; it's friendship and laughter, stitched together with the little things that truly matter.

Deeply moving, inspiring and sharply funny, Perfect Bound is an unforgettable story about resilience, recovery and what really makes life worth living.

In this non-fiction autobiography, Lindsay Nicholson, a top editor and journalist, navigates through the tumultuous waves of grief and post-traumatic stress disorder. Her personal growth and pursuit of happiness, despite the bereavement and relationship breakdowns, are a testament to her resilience.
