When Danny Gregory's life was turned upside down by tragedy, he learned to cope by teaching himself to draw. The result was a complete transformation of his life, his priorities, his career and the way he saw the world. In handwritten chapters full of his own lush watercolour illustrations, Danny offers readers a chance to reconnect with their own creative energies, using drawing as an example. He gently instructs his audience in the art of allowing themselves to fail, giving up the expectation of perfection and opening up to the world.
